The Complete Guide to Black & White Digital Photography (A Lark Photography Book)
You can try my website Black and white fine art and long exposure photography and tutorials « BWVISION – Black and White fine art photography and long exposure photography for example with free tutorials on B&W photography or read the book I co-authored “From Basics to Fine art, B&W photography, architecture and beyond” that you can find here: http://sites.
fastspring.com/juli… it’s a book I co-authored with artist/architect Julia Anna Gospodarou and a book focused on B&W photography in the digital era. Of course Ansel Adams’ trilogy is undoubtedly the best resource there is.
I’m an fairly advanced photographer wanting to make my B&W photography better. Can someone recommend a really good book on B&W Photography? I’ve found 3 that look interesting. Any recommendations between these three?1) Creative Black and White: Digital Photography Tips and Techniques by Harold Davis2) Black and White Photography: A Basic Manual by Henry Horenstein3) Black and White Digital Photography Workshop by Chris BucherThanks!

It depends on what you are looking to do. Do you want to learn about every tool imaginable because there are many books like that. Or do you want to learn the creative process of why master photographers do what they do? Books on the latter issue are harder to find but they are out there.I agree, the Making of 40 Photographs is a GREAT book. Make sure you read it and absorb what Adams says about why he does what he does with a photograph. VERY important. VERY VERY important! Did I say that was VERY important??? It is!Another very useful book is “B&W Printing” by George Dewolfe (www.amazon.com/Digital-Masters-Printing-Creating-Photogra…)And:The Art Of Photography by Bruce Barnbaum (he is primarily a B&W photographer) (www.amazon.com/Art-Photography-Approach-Personal-Expressi…) 80 months ago (permalink)

Ansel Adams’ books are great–fairly technical books on BW photography. They were the first books I bought to teach myself BW Photography ( I had just read an article about him in Popular Photography).
The books really get into the nitty gritty of shooting, processing and printing, but frankly, a lot of it was initially over my head at the time. Henry Horenstein’s book: Black and White Photography: A Basic Manual” is in its third edition and is a seminal text for many beginning photography courses.
It covers BW photography as well, but in a broader, more accessible way. If I were to start it all over again, I would start with Horenstein’s book and then I would go to Adams’ set of books once I get past the basics.
I am writing to state that in my opinion this group is too restrictive and not a…

The Blue and Gray in Black and White: A History of Civil War Photography
My wife recently got herself Deep South by Sally Mann, which is nice if you like that kind of photography. If you’re more into the portraits, Star Trak by Anton Corbijn is a great bookBoth not books which tell you how to make these pictures, but it is always great to see what others have made. The “that’s really nice, I should try to make a picture like that!” approach can really help. Or even just to think on how a specific photo was made with regards to posing, lighting, backgrounds, etc. is a nice exercise. 79 months ago (permalink)
It depends on the subject matter. B&W landscapes are different from fine art nudes are different from street photography. But in any of these cases you can learn from studying the works of the masters, e.
g., Ansel Adams, Cartier-Bresson, Stiglietz, etc.

Hi All – Now that we’ve recently relaunched Black and White group, we’d like …
Considered by many to be, at least technically, the best B&W photographer bar none, Ansel Adams, published a series of books titled The Camera, The Negative, The Print. Even if you are using a digital process, the fundamentals will still apply.
The books are still in-print but used copies are plentiful for a few dollars each.The three seminal books on B&W photography:
