The appeal of traditional black and 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. This is a down-to-earth book which tells you what you need to know without getting bogged down in unnecessary technical detail. It explains clearly how exposure, development and printing all work together to produce the intended result. Many of the author's magnificent photographs are presented as examples, with notes on how the picture came to be taken and how it was printed. A series of detailed case studies shows how the print evolves in the darkroom, from the initial working print to the final product.
