Before the invention of color film, black and white film is the only medium to capture the moment. However, after color film and digital camera are invented, black and white photography seems to be lost.

In this digital era, all digital cameras are designed to capture and process color images instead of black and white images. Therefore, in this era, it is crucial to understand the concept and techniques how to capture and convert color photo to black and white image effectively.

This book is the answer of the problem. In the beginning of the book, Davis discusses about the history about black and white photography, what kind of scene that is ideal for B&W photography, and how to process B&W images.

Many B&W digital photography techniques are discussed in the book, including high key, low key, HDR, toning, tinting, duotone, etc.

The book also provide step by step tutorial on converting and processing B&W images in Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.

It’s a very comprehensive B&W photography book and I recommend beginner and B&W enthusiasts to add this book to your collection.
