Paris La Defense. The Shopping mall
La Defense is a great architectural area. It has lots of amazing buildings, but alos a well designed shopping mall. By using a 12mm lens here, I was able to get all levels in the same frame. And I have to say this is a place you are not allowed to photograph with security all over the place. An image made with my friend +Charles Lupica  last June while scouting for our Architecture workshop.

One foggy day in Paris
I made this image on a very foogy day last june in Paris. We spent 2 days of the Long exposure photography workshop I ran with my friend +Charles Lupica
It was the first time I saw half of the Eiffel tower coverd with fog.
We moved to the Trocadero to get a full view but I spent more time trying to isolate elements such as that great statue.

A view from Paris La Defense.
I don't do HDR very often, but I thought that was worth trying it for this image. There are so many details in these structures that deserves being seen.
An image made last June during the 2 days we spent in Paris La Defense in the Long Exposure and Architecture photography workshop we ran with my friend +Charles Lupica 
Playing with perspective and distortions is a great way to enhance the power and structure of these amazing buildings.

256 Shades of Gray is a fantastic place to learn all you need to know aboutBlack & White shooting and processing. Join a great community of real passionate people and photographers.
           256 Shades of Gray™ 2017
    Online B&W Photography Workshop

hosted on G+ using G+ Communities

"Enrollment" will continue into January or until we have 50 people signed up; whichever comes first.

We will soon enter our 5th year of our online B&W photography workshop, 256 Shades of Gray (256SOG). In 2016, we had a great year, started a second mid-year group, learned and grew together and saw some fantastic B&W photography work. We here at 256 LLC are preparing for an exciting 2017 edition with exciting new content and a continuing refinement of the assignments we've presented over the last 4 years.

What is on your 2017 New Year Resolution list? Making those fantastic B&W images…growing your artistic perspective….getting to the next level with your photography.  The 256 SOG (Shades of Gray ) Community will continue its online learning/mentoring structure with feedback and group participation wrapped around challenging assignments.  We will introduce more artistic growth opportunities. We will continue to emphasize growing our photography and post processing skills in Black and White Fine Art Photography.  New 2017 content will explore more contemplative photography, more B&W technique, more tips to improve your artistic perspective and Intent. We all will learn more… grow more…together. So what are you waiting for? Sign up now. 

Looking forward to seeing you online in 2017. We're anticipating a great year and a great group of continuing and new members!

2016 pricing model 
- 120 $ / year new students - 100$ / year for continuing, prior students or our Arcanum apprentices

To sign up leave a comment below. We'll contact you with payment instructions and a community invitation sometime in late-December. The workshop will begin the first week of January with the first assignment running two weeks. 

 The 2017 edition of 256SOG is limited to a total of 50 members. Photographers of all levels are welcome. More advanced meme3brs are a great resource for less experienced photographers.  

The "heart" of the community is peer review in a private setting.  With each new assignment, we try to push people outside their comfort zone to help them grow as artists. We try to help people see the world differently and to understand their photography in news ways. We want you to be able to say, "I'm not a photographer. I'm an artist with a camera." ™ 


It's highly recommended that people signing up have the Adobe Photographer's subscription and the NIK Collection by +Google+ .  As of this writing, the Nik collection is a free download provided by Google.
