5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Ibraar 'Le Saracen' TOP 500 REVIEWER on 12 Oct. 2012
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.

By far and away the best book on black and white film photography available. I absolutely love how it takes you through how each of the high quality photos in the book were taken, developed and processed. The man is a genious.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It is probably my own fault but I did not appreciate that this book was written pre-digital. There are some great photos in here and some good tips on composition and what makes for a good black and white subject as opposed to a colour one, but overall the book is focussed on film choice and development/printing techniques for film photographers and is therefore of limited use to a digital photographer such as myself.
