Thank you Roy Killen – Monochrome Presentation

Just when we think that Roy has reached his peak, he raises the bar to yet another level. The presentation was fantastic with loads of information and great tips.

For those of you who missed the presentation, you may visit Roy’s website for the monochrome tutorial.

Roy not only covered Photoshop B&W conversions, but also referred to Nik Silver Effects, Luminar 3 and Vitamin BW

Roy showed worked examples from all of the software. He finished the session by showing a Photographic Society of America video, which demonstrated the immense benefits gained by becoming a member.

Presentation Night, 24 April 2019, 7.15pm – Roy Killen’s presentation will be Monochrome.

The title of Roy’s presentation is : “What makes a good monochrome image? Monochrome workflows”

Roy has won many international awards for his monochrome images. His presentation will be invaluable for identifying good monochrome images. You will also be given a wealth of practical information to successfully create high quality monochromes of your own.

You should expect to experience another very educational and entertaining presentation.
