“It’s about mastering the use of a limited visual palette in such a way that you actually EXPAND your ability to express yourself.”

Jim Welninski

What others are saying about the course

You've inspired me and made me understand what vision is: something abstract made real through creative work. And you've taught me how to use tools and techniques that will make my vision come to life. You've taught me that I'm an artist who happens to use a camera.

Barb

Since I took your Black & White Master Class in Chicago I've used your photo processing techniques on some of my own work. It has come out beautifully. Your tutelage is second to none.

James

You helped me in pursuing my vision and showed me the techniques I needed to perfect my work. I am proud to call you "mentor".

Make Expressive Black and White Photos

As a photographic artist, you know that Black & White photography has its own special set of challenges. That’s because it’s about more than just 256 shades of gray. It’s about using tone and contrast in a compelling way. It’s about creating a visual roadmap for anyone that views your work. It’s about mastering the use of a limited visual palette in such a way that you actually expand your ability to express yourself. This course is a deep dive into those challenges. It’s not designed to simply overcome them. It’s designed to obliterate them!

Jim has been teaching this method in the classroom for years and has been internationally awarded for his own work. But it’s the students of Black and White Artistry who are the real stars. Several alumni have gone on to become award-winning photographers themselves. This approach is classroom tested and it delivers the goods!

By themselves, tools are just that: tools. It’s how and why you use them that makes the difference. That’s what Jim will teach you in this course. Here’s some of what you’ll learn:
