At this months Black & White Group Meeting Jan Davis gave a demonstration on black and white portraiture.
At the beginning members were given a demonstration on setting up lighting with available equipment, use of a remote flash and also a datacolour cube which helps with post processing. Camera settings were discussed and and several images taken. Post production was carried out via tethering and in the view of those present. Several pieces of software including Photoshop, Lightroom, Capture One and Nik software were used showing the differences in their makeup.
