Last week I ran my first Black and White Landscape workshop of the year.  Like many businesses the Covid19 pandemic caused me a bit of a headache and I had to put my photo workshops on hold for three months.  The clients who had already booked workshops were offered a refund but I was happy when they said they would be OK to postpone and wait until I could rearrange the bookings with them. 

The first workshop was a 1-2-1 with a client who was returning for her second one day MacLean Photographic workshop.

1/6s @ f8 ISO250 The workshop was held at Barns Ness and Tyningham, demonstrating the techniques on how to ‘see’ a landscape in black and white and expose the image accordingly. This something I have learnt from experience and I now endeavour to teach my clients during the one day workshop.

The best black and white landscape photography has a strong range of tones. From almost pure white through to deep, rich black and everything in between.  Because we are used to seeing the full spectrum of colours, it takes a little effort to train our brains to think about a scene based on highlights and shadows.
Here are some of the images I took to demonstrate during the
