Workshop – Creating Classic Black & White Photos with Digital

[sponsored by Hahnemühle]

Have you ever marveled at the beauty of a Ansel Adams or Edward Weston photograph and wondered how you could create that with your digital camera?

The beauty of classic black and white is not about what tool you use, but how you use it! Join the Atlanta Photography Group and Rich Seiling for this inspiring evening that will show the thought process and fundamentals Rich uses to create museum quality digital black and white prints in the classic style.

Classic black and white has captured my imagination from the first time seeing a print in the developer to working in Ansel Adams’ darkroom in Yosemite. Digital imaging is just another way to embrace this aesthetic, one that gives us access to new cameras, papers, and printing processes. While our tools may be evolving, photography still relies on the same fundamentals of light, exposure, and contrast to give voice to our stories. By learning to “see” through these fundamentals, photographers gain a powerful tool to unlock their vision and tell their stories.

Speaker: Rich Seiling

Rich Seiling’s passion for capturing light and beauty with photography has led him on a series of adventures that have shaped his vision and view of the craft. From a stint at The Ansel AdamsGallery in Yosemite as an assistant curator, to his pioneering work in digital printmaking, founding of a leading fine art printing studio, and 22 years living in and photographing the Yosemite region of the Sierra Nevada, Rich has deeply explored the vision and craft of photography while continuing to express his own vision.

He learned photography in the darkroom, seeking to make prints with the rich tonal scale exemplified by the West Coast traditions of photography. But his frustration with color processes lead him to explore digital photography starting in the early 1990s.

Combining his darkroom knowledge with digital tools led to a process for making color prints of museum quality that pushed the process to new heights. His reputation for making vibrant yet realistic digital prints allowed him to help photographers like Galen Rowell, Jack Dykinga, Robert Glenn Ketchum, and many others, make the transition to digital fine art printing. With his team at West Coast Imaging, he has helped produce numerous museum shows, supplied prints for leading galleries, and done prepress for art books from publishers like Taschen and Houghton Mifflin.
