June 8 @ 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Focus Program Meeting – Presentation by Cole Thompson on ‘Why Black and White?’
Why Black and White?
For Cole “color records the image, but black and white captures the feelings that lie beneath the surface.”
In Cole’s presentation he will make the case for black and white as the perfect medium for all subjects and genres. Showing images from his various portfolios (The Ghosts of Auschwitz, Harbinger, The Lone Man, Melting Giants, The Faroe’s and others), he intersperses them with the lessons he’s learned about Vision, listening to himself, the role of equipment, the rules of photography and others.
Following his lecture, he will take questions and then give away three of his prints.
After a short intermission Cole will then demonstrate his simple b&w conversion process using Photoshop and only six of its tools.
Cole Thompson has been shooting black and white since he was 14 years old, but it’s only been since 2004 that’s he’s been creating black and white images. With his discovery of Vision, his world changed.
A resident of Laporte, CO, Cole spends his time traveling, photographing and sharing with others his passion for Vision and black and white.
