Join us for a full day of black and white photography in Palm Springs, CA with the unique M Monochrom on April 27, 2013 from 9am to 6pm.

Many of the world’s most memorable images were shot in black and white, and as any experienced black-and-white shooter can attest, there is still something unique, compelling, and beautiful about this traditional medium.

This one-of-a-kind workshop will let you explore this fascinating monochromatic world using the unique M Monochrom camera. This program combines a class lecture with real world shooting experience. Under the guidance of a seasoned Leica Akademie instructor you’ll gain a more profound understanding of the nuance of the M Monochrom and its ability to capture light, texture, contrast, and tonal gradation.  This workshop will focus on capturing images and getting the most out of the unique sensor used in the M Monochrom.

Topics covered include:

  • Pros and Cons of shooting M Monochrom vs. M9 and converting.
  • Test Shoot with the M Monochrom.
  • Maximizing capture from the M Monochrom, resolution and tonal range.
  • What makes a good B&W image?
