Lee Frost’s Simple Art of Black and White Photography: Easy Methods for Making Fine Art Prints Hardcover – April 28, 2004
5.0 out of 5 starsOne of the best B&W photo books I’ve read.
Comment: A readable copy. All pages are intact, and the cover is intact. Pages can include considerable notes-in pen or highlighter-but the notes cannot obscure the text. At ThriftBooks, our motto is: Read More, Spend Less.
5.0 out of 5 starsThe perfect book for beginners and pros alike

Ive always enjoyed Lee Frost’s past endeavours in the written field but this one didnt quite get up there in my expectations. This is still a very good book for intermediate photographers but perhaps not quite as gritty as I had hoped for.

Bestselling photography author Lee Frost turns his attention to black and white photography, and demonstrates how it is possible to make beautiful black and white images and fine prints with the minimum of fuss.
Black and white photography has a reputation for being something of an esoteric art requiring lots of expensive equipment and an encyclopaedic knowledge of complex techniques. But here Lee Frost dispels this myth, and proves that it can be the most simple, expressive and rewarding medium.
The book covers all the essential techniques of black and white photography from what equipment to use through to the finer points of printing and toning, thereby demonstrating how Lee Frost creates his own breathtaking photographs, and how you can too.
This is outdated since it talks about film and developing. The photos are not that outstanding. Good for beginners in photography any hows.

Take control of your images â learn to use manual settings and understand their effects. Master the Exposure Triangle and get stunning results.
This is by far the best black and white photo technique book I have read. I am a pro photographer and always keep a huge collection of how to books and monographs for looking up styles and new ideas.Lee Frost is a very down to earth photographer that really takes what he loves to heart.
He preaches that it is not all the little technical things that people and teachers say you need to know that make good photographs, its your own imagination and creativity.This is the perfect thing to say for a true artist.
Lee Frost gives us his own examples of basic photo techniques and then shows us how easy it is to make a beautiful fine art photograph with simple household products and a NON pro camera set up. Of course, he does state that having good equipment will always help, but it is not always needed as so many say.
Just think of the world famous photographer David Hamilton, who only used one 35mm camera, one lense, only natural light, and no filters. It doesnt get much more basic than that, and he is bowed down to by thousands.
Lee Frost has the same idea, and it is very asuring knowing that you dont need to go out and spend thousands to be a pro.Again, I believe that this is the best how to and reference guide on the market today.

I’ve been into b&w photography for a little while now, and lately I’ve been doing a lot of reading on the subject. This is without a doubt one of best books I’ve read so far. I’m already familiar with all of the technical aspects of photography, and those are all explained in the book (except for the zone system, which Frost clearly states at the beginning he doesn’t use).
Along with all of the technical stuff, Frost also explains his creative techniques. I can’t say I learned much of that technical stuff (I already knew it all. I’m sure a beginner could learn a ton), but it did open my eyes to take a much more creative approach on photography than I had previously taken.
Also in the book that’s great is a chapter on lith printing and using liquid emulsion. Along with all of the information are pictures taken by Frost with captions that explain anything relevant to the chapter.
This book is a great read for anyone who wants to improve their photography skills.
