Mastering Black and White Photography: A Unique Case Study Approach to Achieving Professional Results (Mitchell Beazley Photography)
This companion volume to Peterson’s “Learning To See Creatively” explores the way photographers can maximize the exposure latitude of their pictures. The author covers aperture, shutter speed and film speed which together compose what he calls the “photographic triangle”. His teaching method is based on the idea that the first step is to define creative objectives and then to decide how best to expose the image.
Using 190 pictures as examples, with precise details on how they were taken and printed, an internationally acclaimed photographer provides a wealth of practical advice on black and white photography. Special focus on exposure, lighting, film, filters, composition, and darkroom techniques.
“Curiously, given the popularity of black-and-white photography, there are few good, current introductory manuals…”–Library Journal.

Remarkable Books: The World’s Most Beautiful and Historic Works
Super Mario Encyclopedia: The Official Guide to the First 30 Years
for black and white photography. Has some good photographs. Typical of many modern books however in that the content is somewhat thin, having a chapter on everything but none to much depth. I don’t care for the chapters about how to photograph traditional subjects.
But I find myself coming back quite often to look at the photo samples, and the tables of the author’s description of different films and developers. The descriptions again lack depth, but for beginners, they give you some idea about what’s available.
The author states that he likes Ilford’s HP5 film and Microphen developer, so that’s the combination he used for majority of the photos. It’s a good book that will get you started, and in the right direction too.

Book was not very helpful in how to produce the pictures he took. Just basic information shutter speed f-stop, camera, lens & film. No explanation of why filter used. Lots of nice pictures, not much else.
OUT OF ALL OF THE PHOTOGRAPHY BOOKS I HAVE READ, JOHN GARRET DOES AN EXCELLENT JOB IN THIS BOOK. THEIR IS NOT ONE DETAIL HE MISSES IN INFORMING THE READER OF HOW HE CREATED THE PHOTGRAPH. HE ELABORATLY GOES INTO DETAIL FROM THE LIGHTING ALL THE WAY TO THE DEVELOPING PROCESS.

Mastering Black and White Photography: A Unique Case Study Approach to Achieving Professional Results (Mitchell Beazley Hardcover
It is probably my own fault but I did not appreciate that this book was written pre-digital. There are some great photos in here and some good tips on composition and what makes for a good black and white subject as opposed to a colour one, but overall the book is focussed on film choice and development/printing techniques for film photographers and is therefore of limited use to a digital photographer such as myself.

Black and white photography offers an alternative way of seeing reality, a different mirror on the world, a powerful means of artistic expression. But how do you know what will be a good subject–and how to make that person, place, or still life look its best? Using 190 eloquent pictures as examples, with precise details on how they were taken and printed, an internationally acclaimed photographer provides a wealth of practical advice.
Exposure, lighting, film, filters, formats, composition, and darkroom techniques: it’s all covered, along with all the classic themes: producing unforgettable portraits, capturing sports and action, doing reportage, revealing the beauty of architecture or a landscape, setting up nudes, or conveying a child’s innocent charm.
You’ll come to understand the graphic appeal of black and white, and how it highlights shapes, lines, and tones. Every image–from a boy absorbed in a toy train to a close-up of a caged leopard roaring–will be an inspiration.

This is a good general book on photography. Although all of the photographs are black & white, there is not much content specific to black & white photography other than a brief discussion of film, filters, and developing and printing techniques.
The majority of the book deals with exposure and light, composition and subjects.
Expert guidance for creating impressive digital black and white photos. Detailed instructions with easy to understand step by step examples.
