John Hedgecoe is the world's best-selling author of practical photography books, and now his classic on black and white gets a well-deserved and beautiful update. Not only does it include all the modern developments in digital, but it features dozens of new photos, as well. Hedgecoe tackles the most common problems associated with the medium, covering such basic principles as how to convert color into black and white, both chemically and with the computer, as well as tonal range, texture, contrast, framing, movement, and filters. See how to implement these techniques in your still life, portrait, and landscape photography, and discover a range of traditional and digital darkroom processes for improving the image.
