Overview

The fourth in Ted Dillard’s Pipeline series—cutting-edge books that detail digital imaging in the Adobe Photoshop darkroom—explores the most popular, time-honored photographic form of expression: the black-and-white photograph.

Dillard examines Ansel Adams’s legendary Zone System as the foundation of black-and-white photography, and applies these tried-and-true fundamentals to the powerful imaging tools available in Adobe Camera RAW. He explains how to translate traditional darkroom techniques into the digital medium, and how the newest generation of digital tools offers more control, increased power, and greater potential for expressing artistic vision.

Above all, Dillard creates an intuitive and streamlined workflow that gets the photographer from capture to print while creating the highest-quality digital image. This provides the framework beginning digital photographers need to create the kind of black-and-white photos they envision. Black + White Pipeline is a comprehensive resource for the photographic artist who wants to combine the beauty of traditional black-and-white with today’s most influential digital equipment.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Dillard, who's written three previous books on Photoshop (e.g., Smart Object Pipeline), here offers the best of the recent crop of books on black-and-white photography. Shooting in full color and converting to black and white (using RAW files), he produces a vast range of luminous grays. A must for serious photographers, this delves deeper than such titles as Torsten Andreas Hoffmann's The Art of Black and White Photography.
