60 Great B&W Photos from the Masters

Gary Detonnancourt

This month morethanasnapshot will focus on black and white photography, culminating in a 5 Day challenge at the end of the month.  During this challenge you will get a short lesson and activity to complete.  It will run from March 27-31st and is completely free to join.

The images in this slideshow seem to lean more toward street photography.  Notice most of them capture a decisive moment and or tell a great story.  You may also notice a great range of contrast in the images from black to white.  These were shot on film and may not seem quite as sharp as we are use to seeing with digital images.

Learn B&W Photography by Studying Ansel Adams

Gary Detonnancourt

I wanted to write a blog post about Ansel Adams, but I quickly realized there were already some great resources that I couldn't improve on, which is why I thought it would be best to just share them with you and let you explore.

During the month of March, I'm going to run a 5 Day Challenge for improving your B&W photography.  Click on this link to join this free challenge.

In this video I'm going to talk about the work of Ansel Adams. Ansel is one of the most successful photographers of all time. He is largely responsible for starting the "California School" of photographers along with Imogen Cunningham and Edward Weston.
