"Whether it’s the inspirational wild landscapes of Ansel Adams, beautiful portraits or gritty street scenes, monochrome photography is as popular as ever. In Teach Yourself Black & White Photography, we explore the simplicity and timeless class of monochromatic imaging – and show you exactly how it’s all done. Whether you’re a semi-pro photographer looking for inspiration or a total beginner unsure which DSLR settings to use, our essential 196-page guide will help you learn new skills and shoot better black and white pictures. We reveal how to look at subjects and scenes with the eyes of a black-and-white photographer, ready to capture the contrast in an architectural shot, or draw out a person’s personality in a portrait. We also show you how to plan a fine-art nude photoshoot, and the effect that perfect light can have on a still life.
