Oct 15th – RPS ZOOM Workshop: Developing your Mono Vision


Learn to see the world in new way with Simon Ellingworth’s complete black and white photography philosophy delivered by zoom over 3 x consecutive weeks with projects to shoot and feedback in the latter week.

Category: Tag:


3 Evening Online Zoom Sessions – Limited to 10 places.

Recommended prior knowledge

This workshop is suitable for photographers at any skill and experience level.

Course Outline

This workshop runs for three consecutive weeks 18:00 – 20:00

Week 1

In the first session we will discuss what black and white photography achieves for photographers, what makes a powerful mono image, and we’ll discuss a range of images from genres including portraiture, landscape, street, etc.

Week 2

Simon will share with you a simplified and powerful workflow that will help you capture strong black and white images, and we will explore how to spot opportunities and best use light.

During this week or weekend, you’ll ideally go out and practice your new found skills so that you can upload your favourite 5 x images before the following session. (If you cannot get out, you may present older images, but this will reduce the overall learning as you will not have practiced your new skills.)

Week 3

This session will be dedicated to providing feedback on up to 5 x images from your shoot.
