Lewis Katz will present 

 FROM CAPTURE TO PRINT : THE ART OF BLACK AND WHITE PHOTOGRAPHY


​The presentation begins with a brief historical review of black and white images created by some of the master iconic photographers who have influenced my black and white work.  I discuss the emotive power of black and white photography as well as other unique qualities of black and white such as timelessness, mood, atmosphere and mystery as I display my own images first as color and then after conversion to black and white.  Color theory is discussed as well as the potential negative aspects of color in your images.  I then display my conversion process to black and white from color using software programs such as Lightroom and Nik Silver Efex Pro 2.  The program ends with a brief review of the black and white printing process using Lightroom to ensure that your prints mirror what is being displayed on your monitor.  This presentation is truly a unique combination of the “why and when” with the “how to” which sets it apart from other black and white presentations.
