Book Description

7 Jan 2010 Lark Photography
The fourth in Ted Dillard's Pipeline series - cutting-edge books that detail digital imaging in the Adobe Photoshop darkroom - explores the most popular, time-honoured photographic form of expression: the black-and-white photograph. Dillard examines Ansel Adams's legendary Zone System as the foundation of black-and-white photography and applies these tried-and-true fundamentals to the powerful imaging tools available in Adobe Camera RAW. Above all, Dillard creates an intuitive and streamlined workflow that takes the photographer from capture to print while creating the highest-quality digital image. This provides the framework beginning digital photographers need to create the kind of black-and-white photos they envision.

Another excellent book from Ted Dillard (see my review 'Smart Objects Pipeline'. The author knows his stuff and has a happy knack of getting to the core of things in an informative and highly visual way. Black and White photography is in my bones having over the years discovered that it brings the structure of an image to the fore which colour (beautiful in its own right) sometimes disguises such is the power of colour. Moving from the 'wet' darkroom to the 'digital' I search for a workflow that brings the best out of my images. This book adds to that knowledge, and I value it greatly. Each book has something to offer. This book gives me the confidence to explore and work with Photoshop and to do so in a way that has a strong guiding hand.

5.0 out of 5 stars A family affair - the stoic 25 April 2012
By Len E. Doimo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have three of Ted Dillard's "Pipeline" books: RAW, Smart Object, and B&W. I have only finished the first read-through on B&W, but that is because that is my current interest.

There is a lot of redundancy in the three books, but there is a valid reason for it: Dillard is helping you create a process, a methodology. And he is very excited about Smart Objects. His argument for them, in all three books, is the amount of time and effort they save you and the creativity they allow you. This is especially true when coupled with RAW - then you can do much of your adjustment layer work in the RAW editor instead of on Adjustment Layers. A great OOPS convenience.

I can't recommend one over the others - it depends on your current interest; but since all three talk about Smart Objects and the RAW editor, any one you choose will be a valuable resource.

If you opt for more than one, as I did, you will have a great mini-library, just be aware of the redundancy.

I have recommended Ted Dillard books to my brother, another post-processing amateur.

I am sure that if I wrote down every step I took with a photo in Photoshop and various plug-ins it would make sense to me but not to most who would read my directions. Although valuable in many ways I feel that my work in B&W produces images that are excellent for the clients that use me. I have had no complaints about the quality of the images. Perhaps getting too technical inhibits creativity for me. Still the book is a worthwhile read as digital photography is to a huge extent a technical enterprise. I will keep it as a reference for its technical qualities.
