Taking all the colours of the world we see and crafting them into a Black and White image is much more than just taking the colour away. It's a process of carefully choosing the brightness range of different colours and managing the the tonal range and contrast to create a truly dynamic monochromatic image.

There are many different ways to do a black and white conversion, on this workshop you will follow the process I have found gives the most control over the process and how I expand the range of possablilthat was never available to us in the days of the darkroom.
