We love how Black & White imagery and artwork is still produced today. It’s a testament to the beginnings of photography and black and white imagery.

In this course we will show you how to make a stunning manipulation using deep blacks and rich whites. We don’t use the conventional “desaturation” method, instead we use advanced techniques using adjustment layers to create our desired effect.
We will keep many of the original tones within the image to create a more artistic and stylised finish. Think of it as the modern day black and white.

We will combine 8 different images, adjusting the colors of each individually over 11 in-depth lessons. By the time the course has finished, not only will you have a better understanding of color theory, you will also have a beautiful image that represents the origins of Photography.
