Black and White Photography: Today and Yesterday with Serge Ramelli

Look back at the great B&W landscape photos of the past to become inspired about creating strong B&W photos with Lightroom Classic. Join Serge Ramelli as he explores some of the great work produced by Ansel Adams, and discusses what makes those photos so powerful and timeless.

Taking inspiration from that work, Serge brings a photo of his own into Lightroom Classic and demonstrates the tools and techniques he uses to convert raw color photos to dramatic B&W images. Serge wraps up the class with a start to finish workflow example to see how you can apply the same techniques to your photos.

There may be a global pandemic, but my creative cup runneth over and thanks to a little ingenuity and technology I was able to create new work everyday. How? Well, take a look at the photo below.

This photo was shot on an old CRTV, which was hooked up to an Apple TV, which was AirPlaying a Zoom call via my iPad Pro.

Not only was this project been a fun, technical challenge, but it also allowed me to experiment further with today’s technology, and i’m honored to share my knowledge with you.

Now many of you might be thinking “What’s so special about photographing someone on an old CRTV?” Well, nothing! However, I took this idea and and ran with it, with a little help from my friends.

Without further adieu I present an unedited video of a fully remote photo shoot.

If you’ve been around me long enough then you have most likely have heard me mention the photography scavenger hunt. What is the photography scavenger hunt you might ask? it is an online event that started by my friend Chrysta Rae way back in the infant days of Google+ (R.I.P.) and grew to become somewhat of an anomaly as far as internet photography communities go as it is entirely inclusive for all that participate and the people involved truly care about each other and their growth both personally and artistically.

Photo by Robby Klein

Hi Everyone! My name is Joseph Ross and I’m a portrait photographer currently residing in Nashville, TN. Huge thank you to the blog for reaching out and giving me the opportunity to guest write. Admittedly I was a bit nervous at first, knowing that my post would follow the words and ideas of so many other awesome photographers but i’m so happy to be here nevertheless. Though my career is young, I hope that my words will encourage emerging photographers to consider the tools I feel best put me in the position I’m in today.


My journey as a photographer started three years ago when I was a senior in college, studying for a degree which would lead to a career that I realized I would never be passionate about. Long story short, I received my degrees, framed them, and gave them the respect they deserved because I was grateful to have received any sort of college education. I had to convince myself (and my parents) that though I worked hard for them, a lifetime of regret wouldn’t be worth it.

So, after graduation I packed up all of my things along with my “new to me” Canon 5D classic (manufactured in 2006), and moved to Nashville where I was convinced that I would become the next big thing…. man was I in over my head.
