So many people struggle with the visualisation of monochrome photography and this will help those people as it clearly shows you what to look for and how to view it to get great black and white images. It also takes the subject on to the next level and will work for more advanced photographers A nice book to read and very well written

Many photographers still love the rich tradition and unique graphic qualities of black and white, and sense that there must be more to digital monochrome than simply draining the colour in Photoshop. While many books cater for both ambitious newcomers and advanced darkroom enthusiasts, black and white is too often treated as an afterthought. Since the first edition of this book, the software tools for black and white have moved on, with many photographers preferring to use advanced tools on the frontiers of digital imaging, like Adobe Lightroom 3, which can manipulate entire batches of images at once. This new edition more than keeps pace, while covering updates in Adobe Photoshop CS5.5 too. You will discover the most creative ways to convert your picture to black and white, how to fine-tune the monochrome image and how to emphasise your subjects qualities. With quick solutions to common problems and flexible, non-destructive methods for finer control, this book will enable you to produce the finest, most expressive black-and white interpretations of your pictures.
