In the extremely diverse world of photography, photographers are often confronted with the challenge of finding and developing their artistic vision. Whether it is monochrome (black and white, sepia) or colour, the challenge is ever there.

In this 3-hour session, your host Ray, will emphasise that Monochrome Photography teaches us how to see differently and how to capture differently. This genre removes all distractions and focuses on three things: the subject, light, and the background. You will learn to incorporate tones of a single colour used to represent all the different monochromic hues within an image. After all, the definition of Monochrome Photography is an image displaying a single colour or different shades of a single colour. Monochrome is photography in which the entire image is recorded and represented by differing amounts of light instead of different hues.

Ray studied photography based on the Langford curriculum adapted by Royal College of Art, London, and the then Sydney Institute of Photography. Your host draws his monochromic inspirations from the inner visions of past masters including: Eugene Atget, Edward Steichen, Man Ray, Brassai, Walker Evans, Bill Brandt, Henri Cartier Bresson, Ansel Adams, Yousuf Karsh, and Philippe Halsman.

This 3-hour session could be a game changer because Monochrome Photography represents subjects in varying shades of neutral grey but includes no other colours. This stands in stark contrast to contemporary colour photography in which the actual colours present in the subject are captured and represented in the photograph.

Because of this distinction, monochrome images are not true renditions of the world, but rather abstractions that represent different colours with different shades of the same colour. Thereby, Monochrome Photography is most often used for artistic and aesthetic purposes.
