Beautiful Creatures: A Grayscale Adult Coloring Book of Animals

This volume fits with Michael Freeman’s other books in these respects: Its the same size, Mr. Freeman’s writing is accessible and clear, There is plenty of good information and how-to-do-it examples. I have read two other books by Mr.

Freeman and like them very much.The bad is the production of the book. There are obvious and easy to catch misspellings. Sentences that make no sense. Sentences that aren’t. On one page two of the example graphics are incorrectly labelled (the labels were switched and the examples and descriptions were opposites).

All this carried on throughout (I had hoped the situation would improve as the book went on – it didn’t). On the first page of each section there are several lines of boldface type. I thought it would be a very brief overview or a short pertinent quote from the text.

No, although it is located halfway down the page, it is the beginning of the text. You must read it first.I’m glad Mr. Freeman’s newer book(s) are from Focal Press, they seem to have a much better grasp on putting together a quality product.

This is the one book you want if you need a “software how-to guide” for all of the most popular methods used to create B&W photographs from color originals. Not only is John a very good photographer (and a good guy for any who follow him online), but he covers each technique in enough depth that you can understand which is going to be best for you or best for a particular situation.

The usual suspects are here like the Photoshop BW Adjustment and Channel Mixer Adjustment, but what I really like are the harder-to-find insights like using Lightroom’s local adjustment tools to Dodge and Burn selective areas of a raw photograph.

That’s really good stuff you won’t find in too many other tutorials.Another great thing about this book that makes it stand above the usual Kelby fair is the production quality. Really nice quality paper, well laid out, easy to find what you need and easy to read.

All in all this is the best BW resource I’ve found in book format and highly recommend it over other books that may be more “famous” but which give a superficial treatment to this important photographic process (now digitized).

Got the book 5 days later, in perfect time. The book shows no wear which is great, as product states, used like new just shelf wear which is basically a new book. I’ve been wanting this book for a couple years now and I finally decided to get it.

Thank you for selling it!Also, this book is a great, I highly recommend anyone to read this should they want to explore into more digital black and white photography. Even if the photos inspire you to take certain photos that the photographers have provided, it has nothing to do with it digitally if inspiration is what you are looking for.

This book has it!

5.0 out of 5 starsExcellent photoshop guide to B&W techniques

This book is almost square, a fine format for displaying the well chosen images. It says “Black & White” but it also says “Complete Guide”, and that’s so true. Here you find a very methodic approach to this subject.

Starting with simple straight forward color to B&W conversion and showing clearly that the simple way is quick and so dirty, Michael soon leads us into the world of creatively making what we want and how to tweak the image to get that result.

Michael shows us (using Photoshop as main tool) step by step how to tackle the issues, from the color image itself via the conversion (tools) to processing the converted result. Other conversions (like duotones, InfraRed, solarization) are very well explained, in completely worked out examples.

Likeable is that he really shows the different possiblities, sometimes to show that some ways are not producing top quality work, sometimes to show the choices, creative decisions you have to make for yourself.

Plug-ins and other specialistic tools (for making digital look like film, for noise-reduction etc.) are nicely introduced, showing where, if and when they are needed.The images are beautiful and to the point.

The examples show that seeing in color is so different from seeing in B&W. Michael makes us aware of thinking beforehand in B&W, shown also in work made by the masters (Ansel Adams, Edward Weston and more).

The Zone system is not left untouched in this book. If you think: B&W? Easy: desaturate, done. Then think again, from what you see here, you know this conversion can be done so much better. The displaying, mounting, presenting of the work are also covered.

This really is a complete guide!When you pick this up you have a very attractive book in your hands. Written for easy reference, no lengthy chapters, but concise and direct 2, 3 pages on each subject.

And believe me, you want to pick up this book, time and time again, to become a master yourself, at least in the processing and finishing department.

The Photographer’s Eye: Composition and Design for Better Digital Photos

Comment: Pages are clean with no markings. Ships direct from Amazon!

Fans of black-and-white photography can bring their skills up-to-date with this revised and richly illustrated guide! Extremely popular in its first edition, it now includes information about the latest cameras and photographic technology, as well as new filters and software tools such as Adobe® Photoshop® 5.

5.  John Beardsworth explains how to think in monochrome, creatively convert pictures to B&W, fine-tune the monochrome image, and record expressive, eye-catching black-and-white interpretations.

I have purchased many of Michael Freeman’s books. This one meets all of the excellent standards that I like and respect about his writings. I particularly found his comparisons with color imaging and silver based photography stimulating.

The only criticism I have is the poor proof reading. There are many misspelled words, words left out, etc. As a result reading the book can be a bit tedious. This was not the case with the authors other books.

The Complete Guide to Black & White Digital Photography (A Lark Photography Book) Paperback – November 3, 2009

The Photographer’s Black and White Handbook: Making and Processing Stunning Digital Black and White Photos

In the past 6 months I have read over a dozen photography and photoshop books. I would rate this amongst the best of the latter. The instructions for creating different techniques within photoshop are well illustrated in step by step fashion (a big plus for a newby to photoshop).

It was definitely a little light on the overall theory behind B&W photography, so I would only rely on it if you have photoshop.

Well organized with step by step points for the numerous processes for converting color images to B&W; and well illustrated. Illustration could have benefitted with larger photos the size of the “Final Image” for comparisons.

Also has recommendations for choosing particular processes. More than what is acceptable typos. And, what seemed like at least one misplaced photo illustration, which a beginning digital photographer might have difficulty with.

I would like to share with another (even potential) customers my experience from the first reading of this book. It is very good and well positioned essential of everything most important about B&W photography, very transparent and helpful.

Thanks Jiri Pavel, Czech republic

Monochromatic HDR Photography: Shooting and Processing Black & White High Dynamic Range Photos

I have to agree with earlier reviewers.1. The subject matter of the book is excellent, Freeman is a great author and the material is comprehensive and well presented.Read more

I’ve been shooting B&W for almost 60 years, but I appreciated the author’s revisiting of the medium’s history, and the philosophy that kept many of us shooting B&W long after good color films were commonplace.

As a general introduction to B&W photography, this is an excellent book. Most of the technical information is slated toward Photoshop CS4, I think, as that’s the latest version mentioned in this 2011-publication book.

A handful of good alternative software packages are mentioned, but not covered in great detail. There have been comments here about the author’s understanding of Photoshop tools, but there are many ways to convert a color image to monochrome.

Ultimately, it’s the photographer’s eye, coupled with a willingness to spend time learning what all the menu options do, that will produce good results. Good photography is hard work. Pressing the shutter release is easy; what you do before and after are what matter.

This “Complete Guide” covers all the facets of digital B&W photography, and on opening the book one is immediately impressed by the design. Echoing others’ complaints, where it falls down is in proof-reading! I will think twice before buying another Lark Press book for this reason alone.

Yes, the images are helpful and, even with the typos, the text is informative. But the typos and either flipped illustrations or erroneous captions become intrusive in a hurry. Given the production costs and the costs of licensing Ansel Adams’ and others’ photos, a few hundred extra bucks for a proof reader doesn’t seem out of line.

Still, if you’re interested in exploring black-and-white digital photography and you have a DSLR and Photoshop CS4 or later, you’ll find a great deal of helpful information and inspiration in this book.

The book is full of good info. Very thorough. He really could have used a decent proofreader though. Grammatical errors and things that were just worded oddly made it awkward reading. But the general content was good.
