Valencia, Spain. Black & white panoramic photography workshops. Group of 6 people, 3 days. An introduction to my black and white panoramic technique also Photoshop retouching and PTGui workflow. All black and white panoramic photography workshops in Spain require 6 people to run. Please read the: Main Holidays Information Page.
Join me in ‘The City of Arts and Sciences’, Valencia, Spain for 3 full days of black and white panoramic photography. Learn how to create strong, bold, elegant, black and white panoramic photography followed by an overview of the Photoshop retouching techniques for modern, architectural black and white panoramic photography. Composition is understanding where to stand and how objects interact with each other. The smallest movement of the camera position dramatically changes how objects align. In the condensed, modern architectural environment of Valencia, Spain this subject is easily demonstrated; the simplified architectural lines show these interactions very clearly.
The foundation of all photographs is a black and white photograph; the color photograph is just a black and white photograph overlaid with color information. The black and white photograph is the tonal foundation layer that gives all your photographs structure, light, form, texture, spatial depth and three-dimensional quality. The ability to create great black and white photographs with these qualities and full of rich, dark shadow detail, is the core skill to learn; that you then apply to any subject you shoot. The black and white panoramic workshops will teach you the principles of how to create these fundamental qualities from the exposure in the camera to Photoshop retouching principles.
All the black and white photography shown here, was taken with a panoramic head, shooting multiple rows with a Nikon D800E camera and a Sigma 50mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art lens. The black and white panoramic photographs being stitched with PTGui, panoramic image stitching software, followed by black and white Photoshop retouching. While not essential to shoot with a panoramic head; wide-angle lenses can be used, but will create ugly distortions in the black and white architectural images. Part of the Valencia, Spain black and white panoramic workshops is to teach you the best panoramic capture process and show how the PTGui software creates very natural perspectives.
