The Art of Black and White

with Alisha Cline, M.Photog.Cr, CPP

Date: Sunday, March 4, 2023
Time: 9:00am-4:00pm
Location: VIRTUAL

This program is a maximum hands-on experience to improve your black and white photography--while you're photographing *and* while you're editing!

We begin the day with lighting basics: ratios, settings, seeing the light patterns, using Inverse Square Law explaining it visually, and using a light meter.

We discuss and photograph high to low keys, use additive, layering and subtractive techniques.

Through the day we move into creating characters and impact, upping the technical skill sets to more advanced layering of different modifiers together, and end the day learning how to navigate NIK Silver EFx to create pieces for print competition.

Alisha Cline, M.Photog Cr, CPP

Alisha is co-owner of Yellow Dog Portrait co. with her husband Joshua. The studio is based just outside of Atlanta. Alisha's speaking style has been described as honest, open, inspiring, and engaging. She shares personal stories that members of the audience can relate to and learn from. She is eager to share her knowledge in classical lighting, mixing medias to create fine art pieces, and marketing techniques. She enjoys getting to know the members of each affiliate she visits and maintains a connection with them after returning home; answering questions, encouraging growth, and being a friend.

In studio, Alisha's portrait specialty is Black and White studies of individuals of all ages and pets. For personal work, she dives deep into extremely low key portraiture which has been described as "Impact personified" as it has been accepted into the PPA Loan Collection and a 2020 GIA 3rd Place finalist in Illustrative/Commercial category.
