WHAT’S SO SPECIAL ABOUT OUR TUTORIALS?

  • The tutorials don’t just provide you with quick tips and tricks, what we aim for, is to give you ideas and inspiration first with viewpoints you won’t find anywhere else. Because they’re my personal viewpoints.
  • This website was one of the first that provided a free long exposure tutorial to the public in 2009. It certainly is one of the most extensive tutorials on the Internet.
  • We don’t accept norms, we aim to break them and create new ones. The only true norm we respect is progress, always asking ‘what if?’. It’s reflected in our tutorials.

Creating striking, subtle dark images in B&W photography

There are many wrong assumptions in black and white photography, when it comes down to tonal zones and what they represent, and how contrasts should be used to reveal details. In this tutorial I'll try to explain what tonal zones really represent, the role of luminance values within each tonal zone, and how to use this information to create better and more subtle dark images in B&W photography. The image I'm using to demonstrate my point is the Calatrava Bridge photo that won 1st prize for Architecture at the International Photography Awards in 2014 (IPA2014).
