Black and White Photography Essentials-
Virtual Workshop


Colour is such a strong element in photography, that it can often “steal the limelight” from other elements such as texture, tone, pattern and shape. Being able to “see in Black and White” takes a bit of practice, but the ability to craft a high-impact monochrome image will certainly add a feather to your cap!
Join me for an in-depth examination of one of the most revered genres of photography. Our Workshop will be in real time, as if we're in a classroom, and it will be completely interactive with plenty of opportunities for discussion and questions! The Workshop will also be recorded so you can re-watch it at a later date.

“I recently completed Mieke's B&W Photography Essentials Course and it was fantastic. I thought I had a good eye for B&W but I learned so much more from Mieke and her tips for looking for the right shot. Thank you Mieke it was great.”

“Attended Mieke's B&W Photography Online Workshop last night and loved it! She presented the theory side in an easy to follow way with great examples, encouraged the practical aspect of taking B&W photos in camera and discussed other b&w photographers - all in a a very relaxed style. Would highly recommend her workshops and hope one day to be able to attend one in person. Thanks Mieke!"

"Mieke is a wonderful teacher and very nice person. I learnt so much from the workshop; particularly definitions and the importance of contrast in this medium. Editing tips were valuable, also becoming aware of 'seeing' something in black and white. the Workshop left me feeling very happy."

“Did a Black and White Photography Zoom Workshop with Mieke today and she was fantastic! Her images are amazing and she is so inspirational she just wants to make you get out with your camera! Will definitely do another or perhaps a photography trip sometime in the future!”
