Making and Processing Stunning Digital Black and White Photos
The Photographer’s Black and White Handbook is an authoritative and comprehensive high-level guide to digital black and white photography. The subject matter covered ranges from seeing and pre-visualizing in black and white, through camera techniques, and extends to the nuts and bolts of post-production. Special sections demystify fine-art black and white digital printmaking, and creating black and white images using the iPhone.
Photography, and particularly black and white photography, is a form of applied design. The design of The Photographer’s Black and White Handbook, and the meticulous reproductions of the widely acclaimed black and white photos of the author, add weight and authority to the text.
Today’s readers want to enjoy their learning experience, and it is a proven fact that having fun enhances learning retention. Therefore, the technical information in The Photographer’s Black and White Handbook—some of which is rather “hard core”—is encased in travel narratives, with field locations and destinations ranging from France to Japan, to Spain and Morocco, New England, and the American West.
