Black & White Photography

If you fancy a fun day out at York Railway Station learning how to see and photograph in black and white, documenting the light, lines and texture of this beautiful Grade II listed building and capturing the expressions of the people pouring through the station, then this workshop is for you.

The photographic workshop will be tailored towards beginners and enthusiasts. We will look at how to make strong powerful images, using texture, contrast, light and leading lines to help guide the eye through your images
