The March 11, 2020 meeting of the Pagosa Springs Photography Club will be held at 6 p.m., at The Community United Methodist Church, 434 Lewis Street. Our speaker this month will be Club member Dave Anderson, who will give a presentation on Black and White Photography in the Digital Age.
Black & white photography can be useful for emphasizing textures, shapes and contrasts in images, for creating more abstract views of a scene, creating dramatic sky or sky-sun combinations in images, and for architectural and fine art photography. The presentation will discuss different methods of creating black and white photographs, and the use of digital filters and presets to produce black & white images in Photoshop and Lightroom post-processing software, with examples comparing color and black & white versions of the same image.
Dave Anderson has a Ph.D. in Chemistry and worked before retirement as a research scientist on malaria, multi-drug resistant bacteria, disease biomarker discovery, drug target identification and other areas. His photographic interests include landscape and nature photography and occasionally urban and abstract photography.
Club members are encouraged to bring up to five photos on a thumb drive to share with the group after the presentation, if time permits. If you have some black & white images of your own, this would be a great month to bring them! (Please note the new limit of five photos, designed to allow more time to appreciate and discuss the images.)
