Black & White Photography by Ellen Corbett

Ellen Corbett gave an excellent presentation this month on the “WHY” of black and white photography. Why might a photo be better in black & white than color? Click on the photo to download a PDF of her presentation.

This as followed by Sandy Morse who showed us how to convert a photo into black and white, both in-camera and using Lightroom.


Bill Riski showed a few sets of color and b&w pairs. These illustrated some of the characteristics Ellen talked about that make a black & white photo interesting and dramatic.
