Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Goodbye, part of Photography Foundations: Black and White.
You know, most of the time, seeing things in black and white is considered a…bad thing, a sign of narrow- mindedness or oversimplification, but…I am here to encourage you to go out and see things in black and white, at…least photographically.…Your next steps after watching this course are to go out and look at black-and-…white images, get your camera our and practice black and white, and even when you…don't have your camera with you, pay attention to lighting.…As with any photographic endeavor, practice is going to be the thing that does…more than anything else to improve your pictures, but I'm hoping that your…newfound understanding of black and white is going to open up an entirely new…realm of photography for you.…
Thanks for watching!…
