The Art of Black and White Photography: Techniques&hellip by Torsten Andreas Hoffmann

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good book, 15 Nov 2008
I found this book to be very much worth the money! It talks about things that applies for non-digital photography as well as digital photography. The nice thing is that you learn how red, yellow etc.. filters changes the photography. These filters are not needed for digital SLRs, but you learn the effect and can apply them in Gimp or Photoshop to create the effects of them.

It also shows B&W composition which is different from colour composition.

Absolutely recommend this for all amateurs. I'm not a professional so I cannot judge if this book is good for professional or semi-professional.
Learning the vi and Vim Editors by Arnold Robbins

I as many others are Vim users. The Vim coverage of this book is really poor and not worth the money. If you, in 2008, still use Vi you might get something out of this book, but the previous Vi book from O'Reilly might be worth considering in stead.

There are other Vim books out there and plenty of internet resources. This book is not worth it. I'm actually surprised that this was published by O'Reilly
