In her signature poetic and playful style, Tracey Clark shares unique photo prompts to inspire and challenge you to picture the world around you in a whole new light; this time with a monochromatic twist.
Picture Black and White is a creative and inspiring 60 day photo project, where 30 photo prompts are sent directly to your inbox every other day. This slower paced delivery allows for more time to study, shoot, and savor each prompt. Each week will begin with a theme video from Tracey, followed by 5 prompts focused on that weekly theme, to creatively guide you as capture compelling imagery, using the muse of a monochromatic pallet. All new photo editing tutorials will demonstrate ways to convert / process your images from color to black and white, using various techniques, editing tools, and apps. What you’ll find is that the study and practice of shooting without color as your guide will change the way you see your subject, approach your work, and help improve your photography skills, resulting in a refreshed creative vision.
Part encouragement, part inspiration, part empowerment, Picture Black and White provides the perfect opportunity to capture compelling and creatively composed black and white images alongside a community of fellow Picture Series participants.
Here's what to look forward to:
- 60 days to shoot, study, and savor the creation of black and white images together, cameras in hand (1/27/20 - 3/27/20)
- 30 inspiring black and white photo prompts (delivered to your inbox every other day & also accessible online)
- Weekly videos introducing and illustrating the various themes of the prompts
- Photo processing tutorial videos to help inform and inspire your editing / conversion process
- A private posting gallery and message boards within the Teachable online classroom platform to share your work and to view and comment on the work of other participants
- An inspiring way of picturing the world around you in a whole new light
Come make some monochromatic magic as we Picture Black and White together!
