Digital Black & White with Vincent Versace

In digital photography, a good black and white image starts with a good color image. In this episode of TheFIX, photographer and author Vincent Versace joins host Seán Duggan and provides a conceptual deep dive into understanding the essentials of crafting a black and white conversion that gives you full control over the color and tonal information recorded in the original capture.

    It’s a shame he was such a bad guest: dismissive, telling us what the “right” thing is instead of guiding to how you’d get there (an important part of teaching!), and could not keep it in his head that there are those of us listening to an audio version who can’t see what sliders he’s moving around.

    You did all you could to rescue it, though, thanks.

      Thanks for the feedback @xiongchiamiov:disqus. It’s always a tricky balancing act and some podcasts are harder than others in terms of having a video-based podcast on post-processing translate to an audio podcast. I do appreciate you listening and hanging in there!
