The Expanded Guide >Techniques : Digital Black & White Photography

This new series of Expanded Guides focuses on photographic techniques not only to give you a comprehensive grounding in the subject but also takes you a step further to enable you to get much more from your photography. Expert advice, with useful hints and tips, is given by professional photographers, using practical examples of techniques for clarity, illustrated in full color with the aid of clear diagrams and charts.

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.
