Finding Your Vision in Black & White: What the Masters Can Teach Us

Speaker: Leo Howard Lebow

B&W photography is a fine art medium that actually affords greater creative opportunities than those available in color. In support of that statement, Leo reviews and discusses the work of such B&W masters as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Arnold Newman, Michael Kenna, Ansel Adams, Garry Winogrand, and Diane Arbus as he wrestles with the underlying question: what makes a great B&W photograph? Focusing on tone, texture, form, point of view, visual metaphor, narrative and the like, he identifies the elements that comprise a fine-art B&W image. Leo’s underlying goal: to help you refine both your eye and craft as you shape your own special vision in B&W.
