Item description for A Comprehensive Guide to Digital Black & White Photography (Digital Photography) by John Clements...
For the tradition-minded, true photographic art will always be black and white. But today, the digital darkroom offers a degree of artistic control the masters of the past would envy. Each dramatic photo shown here, whether it was captured digitally or on film, became a work of monochrome art in the computer (even if it was originally shot in color). Readers will learn how to achieve similar results, print the images to best effect, and share them with the world, in this inspiring and informative guide.

Making beautiful B & W photos from colour Nov 21, 2006
This excellent book shows a wide variety of coloured photographs taken by various professional and amateur photographers. It clearly explains how they can be improved upon by those who might appreciate or prefer the wonderful medium of B & W photography by manipulation in a graphics program, here, mainly Adobe Photoshop. The book is fairly concise but the better for it. It has a practicality about it which you can only tap into by serious application; a passionate joy for some, a chore for others. I have examined a number of books on the same theme; this is the better.
This is "comprehensive"? The author better look it up in a dictionary. Mar 3, 2006
I was expecting more detailed examples beyond what every typical photoshop book has to offer, but it only delivered about 60% of what I was wanting. This book is nothing more than a Cliff Notes version of "Mastering Black and White Digital Photography" by Michael Freeman, which is truely a "comprehensive" exploration on the subject.
Nothing here not in 20 other photoshop books Dec 14, 2005
I tried to like the book. However its not very well laid out and what content it has can be found in just about any other photoshop book. Really the main gripe here is that the book is poory laid out. The information is not presented clealy and the pages are very busy and hard to read.
