Feb. 5, 2019 – 7:30 pm – SPEAKER: Darren Creighton – For the Love of Black & White

What is it about black & white that still hold such interest for photographers & viewers?  Why do we still choose to make images in monochrome.  I have always loved black & white photography, since shooting my first roll of film. With no distraction from colour, the texture and the light become more important in the composition. A rather normal looking scene can be rendered as more dramatic. Through my passion for b&w we will talk about reasons to still shoot it and how colour is a distraction. The importance of  line, texture & simplification. How black & white effects the emotional weight of an image and how it can work as an artistic tool. Shooting & processing techniques are covered along with thought processes of images from start to finish.  www.darrencreightonphotography.com  Click here for more details
