Picture Black & White
Making Monochromatic Magic with Tracey Clark

In the same light as the previous classes in Tracey's popular Picture series, Picture Black & White will inspire and challenge you to look at the world around you in a whole new way; this time with a monochromatic twist. Throughout the class you will receive thirty photo prompts delivered to your inbox. You will receive each prompt every other day which will allow ample time to shoot and savor each prompt. Sixty days in the classroom setting with thematic videos from Tracey will help creatively guide you as you capture your vision, using the muse of a monochromatic pallet.

Part encouragement, part inspiration and part empowerment, Tracey will not only offer her signature prompts, she'll be sharing the whys and hows of creating compelling and creatively composed black and white images.

About Tracey Clark:
Tracey Clark has built both a career and a life philosophy on her passion for capturing the beauty of everyday life through her lens. A photographer, writer, mother and founder of Shutter Sisters, an online community for women who love photography, Tracey loves collaboration, community, shooting and sharing.

She is the author of Waiting for Baby, Baby of Mine, and Expressive Photography: A Shutter Sisters Guide to Shooting From the Heart and teacher of a slew of photo-centric classes here at Big Picture. She is giddy that her latest book Elevate the Everyday: A Photographic Guide to Picturing Motherhood will be available in Spring 2012!

Tracey lives with her husband, two daughters and two dogs in a California coastal town where they enjoy beach weather all year round. Discover more about Tracey at www.traceyclark.com.
