Focusing on black and white photos, this book looks at both the camera and techniques needed to capture good images, as well as the digital processing that can be applied. As the digital camera market is saturated with all-in-one-book titles, the market is large enough and ready for books that concentrate on specific areas of photography. Black and white is the first area aspirant photographers express an interest in. With so many enthusiasts, this book will fill a niche in this growing market. Black and white is regarded as a significant photographic skill, even an art, so it merits a completed book dedicated to the unique skill requirements. Spanning the topic from capturing photos through to the latest information on digital printing and DVD burning, this book provides amateurs with a solid foundation. The digital focus of this book is comprehensive, including both recreation of traditional effects and all-new digital techniques. It approaches black and white photography from a practical, tutorial view, not just an artistic view, so that readers benefit from an understanding of all perspectives-an important factor in the competitive arena of digital photography.
