Bill Armstrong: Principles of Color For Photographers

  Start Date March 1
  Time 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm
  Instructor Bill Armstrong

The masters of color photography know how to use the secrets of color to seduce and entrance. Many photographers, however, shoot in color without any training in the contrast and harmony of color. The principles of color are simple to understand, and invaluable tools for creating powerful images. Mr. Armstrong, well known for his brilliant use of color, is happy to share these secrets in this one-day workshop. Don’t leave home without it.

“I recommend Bill Armstrong’s color workshop 100%. His understanding of color in photography is unparalleled, and he is able to open it up to his students with clarity and immediacy. He is one of the great teachers. He is a working artist who understands and can talk about his medium. My experience of his class was incredibly valuable and full of insights. He is colorful in the best way.” – W.M. Hunt
