Not only does it include all the modern developments in digital, but it features dozens of new photos, as well. Hedgecoe tackles the most common problems associated with the medium, covering such basic principles as how to convert color into black and white, both chemically and with the computer, as well as tonal range, texture, contrast, framing, movement, and filters.
