Traditional black and white photography has a special appeal that never goes out of style. Even in the digital age, photographers remain endlessly fascinated by its creative possibilities—and this richly illustrated guide offers them a comprehensive introduction to both the art and craft of creating fine monochrome prints. Throughout, it emphasizes ways to master the necessary camera and darkroom techniques and achieve a personal vision every time you shoot. One by one, the chapters delve into cameras and film, exposure and development, composition, printing, and grouping images to form a successful series. Author Steve Mulligan—best known for his large-format photographs of American landscapes—uses his own breathtaking photos as examples, with illuminating technical explanations of exactly how he got the shot.
