by Bernhard Suess
Publisher's Description
From flashbulbs to digital imaging, photography has evolved with technology. New ways of shooting, altering, and sending pictures abound, yet black-and white photography continues to be important, as it has set the artistic standards of photography and allows the photographer creative control. Photographers learning to develop expert skills in the art and technique of black-and-white photography now have a powerful new resource at their disposal. Veteran photographer and photography instructor Bernhard J Suess has revised his classic Mastering Black and White Photography: From Camera to Darkroom. “With all the changes that have taken place in photography, the essential objectives have remained remarkably unchanged,” the author observes. “This is the future of photography—we will be doing what we’ve always done, just by different means.” Now updated to cover the impact of digital imaging and Internet technology, Mastering Black and White Photography thoughtfully traces the photographic process from finding subjects to creating dazzling prints and more. Twenty five illustrated chapters explain practical and artistic matters in a friendly style, including: Choosing cameras, lenses, filters, and film Selecting exposure and shutter speed Setting up and developing in a darkroom Refining aesthetics and composition Archival processing and filing of photographs Using the Internet and CD-ROMs to present a portfolio Anyone ready to improve his or her skills in black-and-white photography will not want to miss this exciting volume..
