Book Description

30 April 2012
Many photographers still love the rich tradition and unique graphic qualities of black and white, and sense that there must be more to digital monochrome than simply draining the colour in Photoshop. While many books cater for both ambitious newcomers and advanced darkroom enthusiasts, black and white is too often treated as an afterthought. Since the first edition of this book, the software tools for black and white have moved on, with many photographers preferring to use advanced tools on the frontiers of digital imaging, like Adobe Lightroom 3, which can manipulate entire batches of images at once. This new edition more than keeps pace, while covering updates in Adobe Photoshop CS5.5 too. You will discover the most creative ways to convert your picture to black and white, how to fine-tune the monochrome image and how to emphasise your subjects qualities. With quick solutions to common problems and flexible, non-destructive methods for finer control, this book will enable you to produce the finest, most expressive black-andwhite interpretations of your pictures.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading 2 Jan 2014
By sid
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is by far the best book I have read for a full exploration of the techniques and fine tuning possibilities that are the basis of all mono photography. I found it most illuminating on older destructive techniques that I have been aware of at a superficial level but this book provides the missing detail.

It comes into its own on the more modern PS techniques and how to use them to their greatest effect which although I have been a keen user of the SFX plug in for some time I still found very useful knowledge. I found the SFX section very thorough and indeed it added to my knowledge in a couple of very useful and important ways that will alter my use of it for future imaging.

The one criticism I would add is the Lightroom section is irrelevant to me as a Mac user and I would have liked to have seen an equivalent Aperture section too but I can understand its omission.

All in all, I would very strongly recommend this to anyone seriously interested in creating quality black and white images.

3.0 out of 5 stars You need the full Photoshop 16 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was not for me but I don't want to deny its usefulness to others. I have Photoshop Elements but the first part of the book (I didn't get to the end) covers the full Photoshop techniques and it expects you to be fully familiar with them hence the little Photoshop steps at the sides of pages wholly lacking any explanation as to how to negotiate through them.
