In-Camera Black and White Digital Photography

There are many ways to create black-and-white photographs with a digital camera. The first method involves simply setting the camera to black-and-white mode. Some cameras do a better job of it than others, even giving you different scene options for the type of black-and-white images you wish to shoot. Most digital cameras, however, do a pretty poor job of black-and-white unless you intervene to set up the camera manually.

In this fun and creative workshop, we tour Balboa Park photographing a variety of scenes for a unique black and white look straight out of your camera. No tripod or post-processing skills are required.

Subjects include:

  • Applying custom camera settings
  • Creating a custom picture style
  • Shooting manually with custom settings
  • Creating high contrast black and white images in camera
  • "Film Noir" lighting
  • Choosing and applying digital filters
  • Reading the histogram for effective black and white
