Black And White Film Photography Assignments.

Look for Contrast, Shape and Texture. The complimentary and opposing colours that bring a colour image to life are all decreased to black and white or shades of grey in a monochrome image and you have to look for tonal contrast to make a shot stand out. In colour photography, for example, your eye would right now be drawn to a red object on a green background, but in monochrome photography these two areas are likely to have the same brightness, so the image looks flat and dowdy straight from the camera. fortunately , it’s possible to work adjust the brightness of these two colours discretely to introduce some contrast. However, a great starting point is to look for scenes with tonal contrast. There are always exceptions, but as a general rule look for scenes that contain some powerful blacks and whites. This can be achieved by the light or by the brightness (or tone) of the objects in the scene as well as the exposure settings that you use. The brightness of the bark of a silver birch tree for example, could inject some contrast (and interest) in to a woodland scene. Setting the exposure for these brighter areas also makes the shadows darker, so the highlights stand out even more. Look for shapes, patterns and textures in a scene and move around to find the greatest composition.

Take Control. Although coloured filters could still be used to manipulate contrast when shooting digital black and white images, it’s more prominent to save this work until the processing stage. Until a few years ago Photoshop’s Channel Mixer was the favorite means of turning colour images monochrome, but now Adobe Camera Raw has more forceful tools (in the HSL/Grayscale tab) that allow you to adjust the brightness of eight individual colours that make up the image. It’s possible to adjust single of these colours to make it anything from white to black with the sliding control. However, it’s important to keep an eye on the whole image when adjusting a particular colour as subtle gradations should become unnatural looking. And adjusting the brightness of a red or pink shirt with the red sliding control, for instance , will have an impact on the model’s skin, especially the lips. The Levels and Curves controls can also be used to manipulate tonal range and contrast, but the HSL/Grayscale controls allow you to create segregation between objects of the same brightness but with different colours.

Try Long Exposure. Long exposure shots could work really well in monochrome photography, especially where there’s moving water or clouds. During the exposure the highlights of the water, for example, are recorded across a wider area than they would with a short exposure and this may help enhance tonal contrast. The blurring of the movement also adds textural contrast with any solid objects in the frame. If required , use a neutral density filter such as Lee Filters’ Big Stopper or Little Stopper to decrease exposure and extend shutter speed (by 10 and 4 stops respectively). characteristically , when exposures extend beyond with reference to 1/60 sec a tripod is wanted to keep the camera still and avoid blurring. It’s also advisable to use a remote release and mirror lock-up to minimise vibration and produce super-sharp images.

Use Filters. Graduated neutral density (AKA ND grad) and polarizing filters are purely as advantageous in monochrome photography as they are in colour. In fact, because they manipulate image contrast they are arguably more advantageous . An ND grad is cooperative when you require to retain detail in a bright sky while a polarizing filter could be used to decrease reflections and boost contrast. Alternatively, make of,find taking two or more shots with varied exposures to create a high dynamic range (HDR) composite. Don’t be afraid to use a ND grad with a standard neural density filter if the sky is brighter than the foreground in a long exposure shot. Coloured filters, which are an essential tool for monochrome film photographers, could also be useful for manipulating contrast in digital images. They work by darkening objects of their opposite colour while lightening objects of their own. An orange filter, for example, will darken the blue of the sky while a green one will lighten foliage.

Dodge and Burn. Dodging and burning is a method that comes from the traditional darkroom and is usually used to burn in or darken highlights and hold back (brighten) shadows. Photoshop’s Dodge and Burn tools allow a level of control that film photographers should only ambition of because you could target the highlights, shadows or mid-tones with both. This means that you could use the Burn tool to darken highlights when they are too bright, or the Dodge tool to perk up them to increase local contrast. It’s a great street of sharing a sense of better sharpness and enhancing texture. Plus, because you may set the opacity of the tools, you can build up his effect gradually so the impact is crafty and there are no hard edges.

Shoot RAW + JPEG. The greatest monochrome conversions are stumbled on by editing raw files which have the full colour information, but if you shoot raw and JPEG files simultaneously and set the camera to its monochrome photograph Style/Picture Control/Film Simulation mode you get an indication of how the image will look in black and white. As most photographers struggle to visualise a scene in black and white, these monochrome modes are an invaluable tool that will help with composition and scene assessment. most cameras are also capable of producing decent in-camera monochrome images these days and it’s worth experimenting with image parameters (usually contrast, sharpness, filter effects and toning) to find a look that you like. Because compact thoroughfare cameras and compact cameras show the scene seen by the sensor with camera settings applied, users of these cameras are able to preview the monochrome image in the electronic viewfinder or on rear screen before taking the shot. DSLR users can also do this if they kick in her camera’s live perceive avenue , but the usually slower responses mean that numerous will find it preferable or check the image on the screen post-capture.

I was just wondering if any of you fabulous people were working on any photographic projects using black and white film. If so I’d really love to see and hear about them.I’ve been working on a black and white film 365 for the past few months and have been keeping up with it (bar a few hiccups). Although it’s not always easy, I have been really enjoying the discipline of taking a couple of shots every day.So let’s see what you’ve got.[Warning: some of these may or may not get featured on the blog.

As part of the assignment, a professional photographer, Tsar Fodorosky, will be visiting our students three times: first to explain the project, about a month later to look at student work in progress, and for a final critique. This is a unique opportunity for advanced students to get real world feedback and help with their photography work. See Ms. Fodorosky’s work here:

I’m planning to shoot at Dumbarton Oaks in Washington, DC, at several points throughout the year. I went on Jan. 7, 2012, and hope to go back at least once every 3 months. I shot Rollei Retro 80S with my Rolleiflex, so I’ll probably stick to that film/camera combination for the sake of consistency. I’m looking for the challenge of spotting seasonal differences in a place with which I will become increasingly familiar. 80 months ago (permalink)

Demonstrates darkroom skills (dodging/burning; filter choice; focus; easel setup; clean negs) Makes choices about individual style or related to what you are trying to express with the print Develops strong negatives (good values and density) Negatives and prints show originality; effort in terms of finding subjects and locations Negatives and prints show variety Shows a distinct point of view; has a story to tell Note: while art is subjective, we agree that all work should be of high quality according to the above criteria

For more information and student work samples:

As you go through the exhibits, take images with your phone of your favorite pieces of art–pieces you would like to discuss/critique/analyze. You need to choose at least six pieces from at least four different exhibits.

 At least two must be photographs. Don’t forget to write down or take a picture of the  title, artist and date.   Create a google doc which you will share with your Mr. Gooder. For each piece, write one paragraph.

Write about why you were drawn to the work. Why does this work inspire or impress you? Is it what it depicts? The emotion it conveys? It’s subtlety or boldness? It’s history? It’s craftsmanship or use of materials?   Include your image of the work with your paragraph.

  Share your review with your teacher by class time on Monday, December 14th.

Hi Everyone, Holga Week 2015 runs from July 20-26 (next week!) I hope those …

I see this topic has rejuvenated itself. Personally, I need a topic and I find there are plenty out there to choose from. I’ve just finished my 2012 ‘River Severn Bridges’ project, and doing so has opened my eyes to other subjects. Some bridges are being re-visited as I’m not satisfied with the first shots, but I probably never will be!Being retired and I living in a beautiful part of the World, it’s easy to nip out into the hills and find some brilliant landscapes. I thought about a subject based on this but decided against it as it’s not challenging enough.So I’m still thinking about a 2013 project; I was considering doing something in colour, but that’s now been ruled out.I hope to see Becca’s ‘365’ project continue to it’s conclusion; I’m sure it’s very challenging. Good luck! 72 months ago (permalink)

What are key images that represent the most important people, places and things in your life? How can photography be used to preserve or remind us of memories? How does the way an image is shot and printed affect the tone, mood and meaning of that image? What power do photographic images have to tell a personal story? What is not visible in images? How do words–titles, captions and descriptions–enhance (or take away) from the meaning of a photographic image?

Hey, go for it Becca!Actually, as for saying anything about it.. Okay, lets see…It was definitely an eye opener. My wife worked there back in 2003 through to 2005, shortly before it started to pack up and close. In 2005, Kodak announced they would be closing the doors to Kodak Heights for good, as it was outsourcing the work over seas, and on the other side of the country. I believe it was a cost cutting measure, but sadly it also meant the loss of more then 800 jobs.In the late 70s, Kodak Heights employed nearly 5000 employees, and was one of the main chemical manufacturing plants in North America. Nahanni Whiskey, and he can attest to this, was one of the many that would drop off his Kodachrome films for processing at this very building. The Kodak #9 building was the office, and film processing facility, where as the outlying buildings, now nothing more then piles of gravel today, were the main chemical plants. They were also one of the main suppliers of B&W Photo paper, both Kodak, and even ILFORD branded paper. (My wife worked in the B&W Photo paper packing centre). It was quite the site to see late at night, the lights blazing, trucks entering and exiting at all hours. From flatbeds to tankers and other various delivery trucks. The day the plant closed, it was like the place had turned into a ghost town, for it was pretty much a town in its hayday! The lights were out, and the roads were and land was forever silenced. Like a blot in the city, where light once shone like a photographic beacon, it is now an eerie place to look at. The remaining #9 building, scheduled for future development and restored, is now a destination for firebugs (as it has been torched repeatedly), vandals, local graffiti artists, and Urban Archeological photographers, myself included. Like a skeleton sentinel, standing and watching over, silently, the lands that once were bustling. Now looking like a graveyard… overgrown with weeds, and pitted with holes, like open tombs, from the excavation of the old chemical tanks. The guard booth is now a burned and collapsed wreck.This adventure into the life of what once was a photographic giant, was both insightful and eye opening, and sadly depressing. As Kodak slips further and further down the spiral into the abyss of despair and desperation, selling their digital trademarks and patents, photographers new and old will feel the impact of this once Photographic giant, when it falls. Now grasping at straws to stay afloat, its barely on its knees as the Digital world spills the blood that Kodak failed to see seeping through its wounds. Unlike Chrysler and GMC, there will be no Government bail-out. As Corporate America is split asunder by the people, perhaps the CEO’s at the Emperor of Light Painting will get the hint, and be able to pull themselves out of the pit before it is too late.*Of course you can easily sum it up into a few words 🙂 Originally posted 82 months ago.

You will look at many images, but are required to write a review of three images of your choice, from three different books. Use your laptop while browsing books. A google doc has been provided to get you started on the Classroom post.

Explore books. Take several off the shelf that interest you. Feel free to share with friends in the class (recommend books to each other). Review the book and photographer. For each image: Take note of the photographer and book title.

Also, take note of the page number. What is happening in the image? What is the subject? What’s happening? Where are we? Where is the photographer in relation to the subject. What does the photo communicate to you? Meaning? Feeling? Mood? Is this the kind of photo you’d like to make? Or just appreciate? Describe.

Plan to share your favorite images with the class.

Look at photography books in the classroom. You can look at any of the photography books. Find books that are compelling, share with classmates, or ask your teacher for recommendations based on genre (type of photos).

Explore a variety of photographers and image making techniques, based on student interest. Write a one paragraph review of each book with, highlighting one or more images that you found particularly compelling.

Share your google document with your teacher.

How can we apply our critical skills when looking at artwork to work in all media? How do different artists and cultures express themselves visually and through the materials and subjects available to them? How is art work curated (chosen and arranged), and how does this this affects how we ‘read’ artwork?

Shoot 1-2 rolls of film.  Must be shot off campus (outside of school) Subject and location are up the the photographer, but the images should be visually compelling and use these four elements specifically: light, line, shadow and shape.

Experiment, look for bold or subtle examples around you. See the slideshow, which you can download at the bottom of this post, for examples.   make a contact sheet make at least five 5×7″ prints.

make one to two 8×10″ prints of your best image(s) (your teacher will help you choose what to print)

After about 50+ years of photography, I am in the process of digitizing thousands of film and print images, both BW and Color. Many are for family archives and others are business related (as weddings), and others are personal art. The print scanning is very fast and I’ve got this down to where I am not having to do to much adjustment in Photoshop. Film is more time consuming and often requires tonal adjustments and dust spotting.This is a photo using a 4×5″ print scan taken in the 1980’s of the front end of an REO Speedwagon.

Each subject needs to be photographed two different ways (ie, up close and far away; different angles; different light). Remember, every choice you make as a photographer can add to the meaning of the subject in some way. Think about what you know about design from previous assignments.

This is not so much a particular project, but an ongoing sub-hobby within my photographic exploits: 1940s vintage re-enactments.I got into this in 2009 with brand-new quality film and modern-ish cameras.Kodak BW400CN: Ilford HP5 Plus: I felt that modern film is ‘too good’ – low grain and very high sharpness. Then I discovered period-correct vintage cameras and started to knock the focus out a bit.Ilford FP4 Plus Then I decided to use uncoated glass and old-school film – brand-new today you can buy Kodak Tri-X , Fomapan and what I use – Adox CHS.Adox CHS 100 Art: My Rolleiflex was made in 1938, yet people forget how good the German optics were for the time. Put some effort into nailing your focus accurately and you can come up with: It has to be said that nailing a composition with nobody in the frame dressed in modern attire is a challenge in itself, but part of the fun!edited for spelling corrections Originally posted 82 months ago.

What design elements make a photographic image compelling? How can one design an image specifically for a black and white medium? In the photographic darkroom, which negatives make the best fine prints? What are their specific qualities?

Demonstrates good darkroom étiquette: washing trays pushing prints into chemistry moving prints along cleaning up your enlarger station / things organized into drawers cleaning up (ie drying prints) for the rest of class careful with the rotary door Watch the phones Helps other students through: Giving constructive feedback while working Participation in critique when work is done–pays attention, looks at work Insightful comments on other peoples work Respecting other points of view Helping to maintain a non-competitive atmosphere in class, or engages in healthy competition

The renovated Harvard Art Museums combines old and new–both in architecture and the work on display. The museum houses everything from Buddhas thousands of years old to new work by contemporary artists. 

“The Showing (work x family) story could not be complete without the perspectives of young people who live it. We developed WRKXFMLY, an original assignment for high school students formally studying photography, to bring their unique and important perspectives to Showing. In the assignment, students create pictures and write statements addressing the overlap of work and family in their own lives. We encourage students to consider broad definitions of “family” and “work.” Their photographs are then considered for inclusion alongside professional work in our traveling exhibition. We also offer opportunities for regional student exhibitions.”

I have two projects for 2012: 1) Shoot the sunrise over Columbia, SC from the Lake Murray Dam on the equinoxes (spring, and fall), and soltices (summer, winter). I thought of the project after I shot the first sunrise of 2012 over Columbia, SC from the dam. 2) Shoot the full moons of 2012. I missed the “Full Wolf Moon” in January since I thought of the project this past weekend.My New Year’s Resolution for 2012 is to shoot film exclusively in B&W. 80 months ago (permalink)

Speaking of my Kodak set..I have just one more set of images to take and add to this.I need to bring my Kodak Duaflex IV to the land that it was built on. Put a roll of Kodak Verichrome PAN through it, and maybe even shoot my only roll of Kodachrome film … Of course process as a B/W.. The plant that helped put out the K14 chemicals, and built such cameras as the Duaflex series, and Six-20 Jrs….it will be a fitting set of images to mark the end of a Photography Giant..It’ll almost represent the legacy coming Full Circle….

Keep a journal for this projects (can be on your laptop). Write freely about each of your subjects (people, places and things). What do they mean to you? Why did they deserve to be preserved or remembered through photography?

Hamilton… The stink of Ontario 🙂 I wouldn’t say the equivalent to Pittsburgh. At least Pittsburgh has a decent football team :)I’ve been wanting to shoot the steel mills for ages. 71 months ago (permalink)
