I will join the group here with a 5-star rating. I am not a huge fan of the “star” rating system, because – in my opinion – it effects sales disproportionately (a 5-star book needs only one bad review in many to become a 3 or 4 star book).
Being an author myself, I understand this, and I don’t think anything other than 5-star accurately reflects the utility of this book.My primary question would be whether I would recommend that a serious photographer purchase this book.
And I would recommend it. I have been shooting (film, progressed to digital in 2002) for 40 years; and am mostly-self-taught. This means (especially in the early years) lots of “how to” books. There are lots of pretty good ones out there and lots of not-so-good ones.
Many keep re-iterating the same “basics” over and over again, which for the most part is a waste of space for the seasoned user. There are a few real “keepers” in my view. But there is NO ONE book that comprehensively covers a subject.
Like any learning endeavor (even school textbooks) you need to collect different books to supplement each other. This is one of those books. It has a lot of very good information in it and should be part of a serious B&W shooter’s “library” in my opinion.
But it probably isn’t the only book you should have (I think the Ansel Adams books are probably part of the library too).Now for some objective criticism.The positive: This a a book for those who like to “get under the hood.
” I am one of those. I really enjoyed the brief history, and the comparison of B&W film characteristics with digital. It puts what I am trying to do and why into context. There is just enough information about how to use the popular software applications.
It is not a re-hash of the how-to books.The negative (or perhaps “constructive” 🙂 ): Some of this may be editorial, but it affects the reader experience. My biggest issue is that the text often references (usually Photoshop) measurements that are not illustrated.
It often will say something like, “as the histogram in this image illustrates …..”. Then rather than having a histogram as an illustration for the image, the book will show the image and occasionally some sliders for the suggested adjustment.
Likewise, there is often a reference made to an original image and then the suggested adjustments and the final image. Sometimes the original image is presented – but often it isn’t. Sometimes the “stages” are illustrated by resulting image.
But sometimes they are not. This is very inconsistent throughout the book and is somewhat disconcerting for the reader who is trying to follow and learn.Overall, these are not major issues and I would recommend this as an addition to your library

Let Adams and his close friend/collaborator John Schaefer tell you how, through the specifics of black and white photography and cameras and lenses, in these two guidebooks.

The Basic Techniques of Photography: The Ansel Adams Guidebooks by John P. Schaefer
I am so glad Michael Freeman released an updated version of this excellent, academic book filled with great examples. Strongly recommend for any serious BW photographer.
If youâve been doing photography for any length of time, you know that any book written by Michael Freeman will be among the best you can buy on any topic. Freemanâs new book, Black and White Photography, keeps the tradition of excellence by providing photographers with a quintessential guide to creating and editing monochrome images.
In this book, Freeman rightly begins at the beginningâwith a genuinely interesting history of photography. And since black-and-white photo was at the beginning, Freeman introduces the fundamental technical and style traditions established and refined by the masters as black-and-white shooting evolved.
But youâre never left with a dry, tasteless walk from Niepceâs 1826 eight-hour exposure to Daguerreotypes that reduced exposure time to 20 to 30 minutes. Freeman includes the artistic philosophies and concerns of the masters including and their responses to the introduction of color films.
Throughout, Freeman relates the past technologies and approaches with current technologies and options. So if you think you can skip the history part, youâll miss important considerations for current photographers.
Despite the introduction and mass popularity of color film, black-and-white photography endures both for its aesthetic and artistic impact. Youâll learn the structure and characteristics of black-and-white films that serve as the basis for the âlooksâ that photographers today want to replicate when converting color digital images to monochrome.
As Freeman discusses how lighting, drama, geometry, and texture become the hallmarks of black-and-white images, I realized again that black-and-white shooting demands an artistic vision in ways that color photography does not.
The author discusses every aspect of monochrome images from shape and composition to tone and texture, and he clearly demonstrates how to maximize each aspect to deliver your final interpretation of the image.
Abundant and beautiful images illustrate Freemanâs techniques.Like most photographers know, working with 12- or14-bit RAW images offers files that are data rich, allowing a wide range of adjustments including highlight recovery during conversion.
Freeman shows conversion examples in programs ranging from using Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) with itâs SHL/Grayscale and Curves tools, and Adobe Lightroom to various plug-ins such as Silver Efex Pro (a plugin that sadly is no longer supported by Google).
Youâll learn how to think in black and white so you can pre-visualize the final image. The author spends time showing you how to adjust and perfect contrast, how to work with high- and low-key images, and how to tone-map images with and without High Dynamic Range (HDR) processing to name a few.
At every turn, Freeman includes alternate options. By manipulating hue, he demonstrates how to fine-tune contrast, atmosphere and depth in the image, as well as how to adjust the appearance of vegetation and dark and light skin tones.
As a photographer and author, I know that Freemanâs recommendations keep with the best of industry standards. Whether youâre new to monochrome shooting or returning to it after time away, this book will make you anxious to begin shooting black-and-white.
Freeman leaves no stone unturned. Itâs with a detailed, clear-eyed vision, from capture to thoughtful processing, that the rich history of black-and-white photography is brought forward to today.
He is young, motivated and eager to show his inspiring work to the world. His name is Joshua Aronson, and you will enjoy seeing the world through his lens. Joshua picked up a camera at a young age and instantly fell in love with analog photography.
Michael Freeman, professional photographer and best-selling author, was born in England in 1945, took a Masters in Geography at Brasenose College, Oxford University, and then worked in advertising in London for six years. In 1971 he made the life-changing decision to travel up the Amazon with two secondhand cameras, and when Time-Life used many of the pictures he came back with, he embarked on a full-time photographic career.Since then, working for clients that include all the world’s major magazines, most notably the Smithsonian Magazine (for which he has shot more than 40 stories over 30 years), Freeman’s reputation as one of the world’s leading reportage photographers has been consolidated. Of his many books, which have sold over 4 million copies worldwide, more than 60 titles are on the practice of photography. For this photographic educational work he was awarded the Prix Louis Philippe Clerc by the French Ministry of Culture.Freeman’s books on photography have been translated into 27 languages.

Many years before the Internet was born, amateur and professional photographers turned to instructional books to look for tips and tricks. Decades later, despite the convenience and prevalence of the WWW, some of these books have remained useful to film photographers of all ages and levels. From composition tips, ABC’s of film photography, creating beautiful prints, to building your own darkroom, these books still got you covered. So, if you love both reading and analog photography, or are simply looking for more useful tips, take note of these interesting film photography reads. If you manage to find one in a bookstore, vintage shop, thrift store, or online, I’d say grab a copy and start leafing through the pages!
