Library Journal - Library Journal
Drawing upon 20 years of experience as an accomplished professional photographer, Suess offers readers a very thorough introduction to black-and-white photography. Virtually everything an amateur needs to know about getting started, from selecting a camera to setting up a darkroom, is covered. The author is not only knowledgeable but writes in a pleasant, conversational tone. His willingness to share his expertise makes this a useful and satisfying book. Although it is geared primarily to amateurs, professionals may also profit from much of the advice presented here. A valuable addition to photography collections in both public and academic libraries; highly recommended.-Raymond Bial, Parkland Coll. Lib., Champaign, Ill.
