The appeal of traditional black & white photography is still strong, even in the digital age, and this book offers a comprehensive guide to both the aesthetics and the technique of creating fine monochrome prints. The emphasis throughout is on achieving your personal vision by mastering the appropriate camera and darkroom techniques. Also includes many of the author’s magnificent photographs presented as examples, with notes on how the picture came to be taken and how it was printed.
