Digital Black & White Photography

Digital Black & White Photography

Digital Black & White Photography gives advice on how to shoot black & white images on today's sophisticated digital SLR and compact digital cameras, and even mobile phones. Aimed at the novice or more experienced amateur photographer, jargon-free text explains the theory behind digital photography, along with a guide to the equipment and software needed to take outstanding images.

From the basics of exposure and good composition, file types, manipulating captured images using popular software, and applying special effects (such as split toning, simulating film grain, lith prints and using cyanotypes) a number of projects are described for photographing, for example, people, landscapes, architecture, and animals. A chapter on printing gives invaluable advice on outputting and displaying images.
