By Ibraar 'Le Saracen' TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book taught me EVERYTHING I needed to know to be able to visualise B&W, tones, tonal relationships, themes, developing B&W Film (inc Films and Developers), and especially Printing.
Everything is brilliantly laid out, explained, illustrated and presented.

This is the book to start off with, and you can then branch out.

The information is all appropriate, even in this Digital age we live in/

Bottom line is, that you may be interested in Film photography, in developing B&W, come from a Digital background and want to take the film route into Art - and are a bit wary, or unsure about where to start or what to do - well this book explains EVERYTHING in easy ways you can understand - even if it's just shooting film rather than Developing, this is a brilliant book, the photography is excellent too and its worth buying just for that - and this is The perfect book to buy and to start with!

He also includes a LOT of his excellent photographs as examples of Film, composition, themes, developer and tones etc.

brilliant!

I picked this up in a second hand bookshop, it was so good I bought a copy for a friend at the full price.

This is hands down one of the best photography books I have ever read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MOST EXCELLENT BOOK!!!!!!!!! 22 Jun 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
OUT OF ALL OF THE PHOTOGRAPHY BOOKS I HAVE READ, JOHN GARRET DOES AN EXCELLENT JOB IN THIS BOOK. THEIR IS NOT ONE DETAIL HE MISSES IN INFORMING THE READER OF HOW HE CREATED THE PHOTGRAPH. HE ELABORATLY GOES INTO DETAIL FROM THE LIGHTING ALL THE WAY TO THE DEVELOPING PROCESS.
