5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent guide to black & white 3 Oct 2004
This is an excellent book - I've read a large number of black & white photography books but this one is by far and away the best. It doesn't bury itself in arcane developers & complex techniques but shows, with examples, the beauty of B & W & how to produce prints you'll be pleased with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clear and understandable 27 May 2005
Verified Purchase
I have read a few Black & White "How to" books and all seemed to be written either either as a strict instruction guide, or from a more technical point of view leaving out the basics. Except, that is, for "Lee Frost's Simple Art of Black and White Photography."
I have read a couple of Lee Frost's books and he has a very clear understandable writing style which seems to be aimed towards the amateur/hobbyist who may not have years of experience or thousands of pounds worth of equipment. The book clearly describes the process of making black and white prints from the initial shot through to the final print. He gives suggestions to what materials and equipments to use and practical solutions if you may not have all the neccessary gear (eg seed trays instead of developing trays). The book has an emphasis on personal style above technical precision.
If you are wanting to start out in black and white processing this book is essential and far more informative than any other guides I have seen. My first attempt at printing was based soley on the methods in this book and the results were way beyond my expectations.

5.0 out of 5 stars No nonsense approach to B & W photography 22 Aug 2012
By Richard
Verified Purchase
The book is easy to read, and Lee Frost's approach to B&W processing is straightforward. His approach is ideal for making a start in darkroom B&W photography. Other techniques and processes can be explored once you have some experience. Initially, I had the book on loan from the local public library. I though it would be useful to me while establishing my darkroom processes, so I bought a second-hand copy from an Amazon seller. The condition is "as new", but at a significant saving over a new copy. The book is certainly worth having in my photography book collection.
