Overview

For photographers, seeing the world in monochrome opens up a new universe of exciting photographic possibilities. Without color acting as a distraction, they start to see the world as a beautiful range of tones instead. Black & White Digital Photography Made Easy is the all-in-one guide to shooting and editing brilliant monochrome images, presented in words, pictures and video.
This book explores the evocative world of black and white photography and looks at exhilarating new ways to approach the mono medium. Perfect for both the semi-pro photographer looking for inspiration, as well as for total beginners unsure which D-SLR settings to use, this essential guide shows photographers how to improve their skills by broadening their horizons and opening their eyes to the full potential of black-and-white.
From landscapes to city scenes, portraits to fine-art nudes, and weddings to floodlit ruins, there's something in this book for everyone who wants to learn how to approach shooting for black and white. The authors start with the basics, explaining when to work with black and white, which shots work best, and the role of weather. They offer tips on inspiration, camera skills, darkroom techniques, conversions, contrast, and toning effects. Readers will learn the secrets of shooting like a pro, from urban mono and infrared to night composites and fine art prints.
The book provides eighty pages of professional Photoshop advice, with twenty step-by-step lessons that show the best ways to convert color shots to mono-from basic methods to more advanced image-editing techniques. Each Photoshop lesson is backed up with instructive video guides on a free DVD that is jam-packed with over five hours of exclusive tutorials.
By working through both the lessons and the videos, readers can master all of the skills necessary to produce their own prize-winning works of art. Owners of the book will also gain ready access to all of the original photos needed to complete the projects, allowing them to try out the techniques on their own computers right away.
