There was a time when black and white photography was all we had. Although color has brought us opportunities that would have been envied long ago, the classic black and white photograph is more highly revered than ever. Drawing on decades of experience starting from when he built his first black and white darkroom at age 13, Photographer and imaging expert Joel Wolfson will take you through his complete process. He’ll start from raw capture to preparation in color, then through conversion and finishing touches to final black and white using his favorite Topaz tools like Clarity, Adjust, Detail, B&W effects and more.

Joel conducts photo workshops worldwide from his native Southwest to Italy, France and other locales. His roster of notable clients include Newsweek, Elle, Seventeen, Houghton Mifflin, and corporate clients such as Apple, AT&T, 3M, United Airlines and Pillsbury. His technical articles on digital imaging have been translated for use in more than 30 countries. Yet he is best known for his artistic images and unexpected views of everyday places around the globe.
