Black and White Photography

Saturday 16 December
Lillian Drive - 10am - 2 Hours
Modesto Photography Group
Paris Tyrone Gonzalez
Introduction to Black and White Photography. What is Black and White Photography?
Monochrome Photography used to mean loading black and white film into the camera. Now we are not limited to the types of film we place in our cameras and each image can have a unique perspective vision. When it comes to Black and White photography, perspective and vision can set a great frame apart. Taking color out of the equation can create drama to your photos, give them an old-fashion feel, or put the focus directly on your subject. But creating powerful black and white photographs involve much more than just removing color from your final image.

    Lawrence Calderon
    My journey into the heart of photography began at the esteemed San Joaquin Delta College, where the science of light merged with the art of image. There, amidst the golden landscapes of California, I honed my skills, finding that my true calling lay in the candid beauty of portrait photography and the dynamic whirlwind of event photography.

    With a camera always at my side, I have worked with an array of diverse models, each session a dance between photographer and subject, resulting in portraits that speak volumes without uttering a word. My portfolio is a mosaic of human emotion, each shot a window into the soul.

    But my expertise isn't confined to the stillness of the studio. I thrive amidst the buzz of events, where my lens captures the essence of the moment, be it the intimate glances shared in a crowd or the exuberant joy that spills from the grandest celebrations.

    Throughout my career, I've collaborated with various esteemed brands, each collaboration a testament to my versatility and vision. My ability to adapt to the unique visual stories of brands has made myself not just a photographer but a trusted partner in their creative journeys.

    As an educator, my passion is about igniting this same fervor for photography in others. My teaching is not just about imparting knowledge; it 2019s about inspiring a vision, honing a craft, and nurturing a new generation of photographers to see beyond the lens.

    Whether capturing a whispered secret between old friends or framing a model against the crumbling grandeur of an urban landscape, I bring to life the extraordinary moments hidden within the ordinary. And now, I invites you to join me, to learn not just how to take photographs, but how to make photographs that matter.
