1 – What will I learn?
The focus of the Mono Take Select Edit Masterclass in Wensleydale is to take already advanced black and white photographers and help them to produce individual creative work. The masterclass is very much based on thinking skills, your photographic influences and the finer points of the art form.
The aim of a digital monochrome masterclass is to inspire and inform participants. The benefits of the masterclass for you are a better understanding of what you want to say photographically and how to tell it effectively.
- Take – the optimum shot

1 Picture Taking Sessions
We have the whole of the North Yorkshire Moors and beyond to choose from as our picture taking locations. Before heading out the ABC of CameraWork tutorial will help you make relevant and significant decisions as you go through the picture taking and making process. There is a wide variety of subject matter in the area and we will not restrict ourselves to the landscape. Throughout each shooting day, we will regularly review the progress of each participant’s pictures based on the ABC of CameraWork.
