COURSE DESCRIPTION: Students will learn of the special quality of black and white photography through mood, atmosphere and emotive quality. By reviewing some of the work of iconic black and white photographers students will begin to appreciate the special qualities. We then move on the actual capture of the images and the conversion process of color into black and white using the available photography software programs.
