Get the black and white images you want every time you pick up the camera. Now that you've bought that amazing new DSLR, you need video training that goes beyond the camera manual to teach you how to take great black and white shots. In this high-quality video, pro photographer John Batdorff takes you with him in the studio and on location to show you how to conquer the fundamentals of composition, light, contrast and texture. You'll learn the techniques that will make your portraits, landscapes, and action shots amazing.

In this stunning, high-quality DVD-ROM, Batdorff starts with the basics--composition, light, contrast, and textures--and when to choose black and white. He covers all the key camera features that affect your image (regardless of what type of DSLR you have), including the shutter speed's ability to freeze and convey motion, as well as aperture's direct correlation with depth of field.

Once you've captured those shots, John will tak you step-by-step through color conversion and post-processing in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and show you cool enhancements that can be added with Nik Silver Efex Pro software to make your black and white images truly stand out.
