Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
Although he explains "there is no wrong way to make a print," George Schaub (editorial director of Shutterbug and eDigital Photo magazines) guides you through every step of the process in Digital Black and White Printing. Informative and beautifully illustrated, this is an excellent place to start learning about digital printing. Schaub's writing reveals clearly how enamored he is with photography in general, and how knowledgeable he is. He runs through all the major elements of a print in detail: tonal scale, contrast, exposure, and more. Photos are provided through the book to serve as examples for techniques described. Often, multiple images are displayed, in order to highlight what has been changed or the effect of a particular technique. He makes a strong case for the advantages of digital printing as compared to printing in a darkroom and shows off hundreds of beautifully printed photographs as proof. Schaub also describes what kinds of tools are required for these processes. A rundown of types of cameras (and advice on how to use some features) as well as scanners and printers could prove useful for first-time digital printers. In addition, he explains the tools that come along with most digital imaging software, showing how to best use layers, levels, curves, colorization and many more. Toward the end, he completes the cycle by explaining the different types of paper and ink that are used in the actual printing process. There are tons of examples throughout to illustrate the skills involved in tweaking any digital image, making it easy to be successful with little experience. This book is particularly recommended for beginning digital photographers but willinterest experienced photographers as well. KLIATT Codes: JSA—Recommended for junior and senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2005, Watson-Guptill, Amphoto, 160p. illus. index., Ages 12 to adult.
