    Worth a look

    Photographs are excellent as you might expect from this author/photographer. In the nook form, turning pages to revisit photos after reading text info can be a problem. Sometimes the pix precede the text, sometimes they are after. An inconsistency I found troubling. No longer having a conventional wet darkroom, I found myself less interested with the ASA rating vs shooting numbers. i.e. tri-x asa 400 shot at 250. Perhaps if I still did the darkroom thing this would have been of more value. As a guide to improving my own B&W shooting, it was less than helpful. To view Mr. Hayward's wonderful work, it is a 4 star experience.

    Think this one would be better in paper format.

    great technical info & good stories too!

    My collection of Black & White photography books is quite extensive, including earlier publications on B&W from Amherst Media. I think they decided to take a 'roll of the dice' on J.D. Hayward¿s book, and have apparently come up with a fresh approach from their previous books. This is truly a hybrid book; it¿s not one of the boring Kodak manuals, but more of a cross between creative traditional photography combined with the story behind the image. He keeps the technical section clean and concise in the front of the book, and each page gives his film and development technique for the corresponding print. It¿s creative and different; as a teacher, I would recommend in to my students as a great idea book. Christopher Sherrill Cambridge,MA
