Expressive Digital Balck and White Landscape:

Several years ago while working on a commercial photography assignment I was asked a question which has stuck with me ever since.  The question?   Whats in your tool kit?  In other words, what do you need to get the job done?  A camera is a tool, and a powerful one at that.  Its not so much about the camera, but how its used.  Good photographs require the photographer to slow down, see, and personally express the world in front of them. 
Landscape photography is formed by the point of view of the photographer; it is a spiritual experience, the reflection of a culture. Historically, the great masters of black-and-white landscape used large-format cameras and traditional film processes. Now advances in digital technology have opened new opportunities for photographers who wish to explore the aesthetic and technical aspects of digital black-and-white landscapes. 


On location daily, we take the time to see and fully express the spirit of the black-and-white landscape as we discover a place and the secrets of its beauty. We consider the concept of landscape and how it is connected to the cultural, social, and geographical aspects of our environment.

In the classroom, we combine traditional Zone System methodology with new digital processes in Adobe Lightroom to forge a complete digital grayscale workflow. We learn to express in black and white our personal interpretations of landscape. Blending traditional, new, and emerging techniques and technologies, we discover the extraordinary possibilities of expressive digital black-and-white landscape work. 

Join us September 21-25 for Expressive  Black and White Landscape Photography.

be strong, be safe, Carlan

  1. MOST BAPTISTS SAY...... BY STEVE FINNELL

    Jesus said, Mark 16:16 "He who believes and is baptized will be saved......(NKJV)

    Most Baptists say, "He who believes is saved and he who is baptized is permitted to join the Baptist church."

    The apostle Peter said, "Acts 2:38...."Repent, and let everyone of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. (NKJV)

    Most Baptists say, "Repent for the remission of sins and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ because your sins have already been for given.

    The apostle Paul said, "1 Timothy 4:1 Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons,(NKJV)

    Most Baptists say, "Christians can never depart from the faith, because once a person is saved they can never be lost."

    Most Baptists say, "You do not need to be baptized in water to be saved, however, you must be baptized to join the Baptist church."
