4.0 out of 5 stars Good read, but... 22 Sep 2011
By Willem
Format:Paperback
I really liked this book on B&W photography despite the fact that it relies quite heavily on post-processing. Having said that, most B&W photos these days are taken with digital cameras, so if you want to create a B&W portfolio you will have to rely on photo editing software.
The downside is that the book relies on the photographer's access to two B&W tools: Adobe Lightroom and Silver Efex 2. If you do own these tools, then this book shows in detail how you can achieve great B&W images with them. If you don't, it might convince you that you have to spend even more money if you want to create great B&W images.

Having said that, a third of the book focuses on composition and exposure, so even if you use other B&W conversion tools, there is still some value. However, there are better books on just exposure and composition so if you'd want to learn more about those topics, you might want to consider some other books.

As is clear from the above, it's the post-processing information that makes this book a good source of information and for someone interested in B&W photography and who has access to the software, it's a nice all-in-one package.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect 4 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you like black and white picture and you (want to) use Lightroom together with Silver Efex Pro, than this book is the ideal guide. Crisp and clear! A must have.

5.0 out of 5 stars great for monochrome 5 Aug 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a very good book for monochrome but, only if you have Silver efex 2 software, and better still if you use lightroom as well.it explains in good detail the interface of silver efex 2,and then about using the various tools and sliders to get fantastic black and white photos, it starts out explaining how too see in black and white, and takes you through too printing, doing your own, using a print house,framing and sharing your photos,but like i said at the start, it is no good if you dont have the above software as it doesn't cover coverting too black and white in photoshop, or, elements etc.
