No wonder black and white photography is more popular than ever, as photographers see its capacity for expressing personal style with simplicity and subtlety. Take your cues from 19 photographers recognized internationally for their b/w creations. They show and tell both their art and their technique, with galleries of their work accompanied by explanations of how they did it. You'll begin with how to master the rules, then how to bend them for particular effects. Then discover their many uses of lighting, composition, posing, and presentation, as well as their approaches to mood, style, and effect. Candid and posed portraits, figures, and group studies display a variety of faces and profiles of all ages, and full and partial figures in both closeups and landscapes offer a treasury of ideas, regardless of the equipment you use.
