My Mother's Day gift was a workshop by the amazingly talented Nancy Merkling. I had wanted to take this class once I saw she was offering it. At the previous workshop I had taken (Composition), she had wondered if anyone would be interested in learning to shoot for black and white and I immediately knew I would be!!
I learned a lot of things and how to look at things in color, but try to visualize them in black and white, taking special note of light/shadows, texture, and tones. Here are the photos that I had taken away from that class. I hope you enjoy them! And as always, I look forward to reading any comments you may have!
