This new series of Expanded Guides focuses on photographic techniques to give you a comprehensive grounding in the subject and also takes you a step further to enable you to get much more from your photography. Professional photographers give expert advice and useful hints and tips, using practical examples of techniques for clarity, all illustrated in full colour with the aid of clear diagrams and charts. Digital Black & White Photography gives advice on how to shoot black and white images on today's sophisticated digital SLR and compact digital cameras and even on mobile phones. Aimed at both the novice and more experienced amateur photographer, jargon-free text explains the theory behind digital photography, along with a guide to the equipment and software needed to take outstanding images. From the basics of exposure and good composition, file types, manipulating captured images using popular software, and applying special effects (such as split toning, simulating film grain, lith prints and using cyanotypes) a number of projects are described for photographing people, landscapes, architecture and animals. A final chapter on printing gives invaluable advice on outputting and displaying images.
