Well worth the price Wish I had made this purchase years ago. I just unpacked and cleaned an Argus ” The Brick” Rangefinder circa 1948. Along with my mid 80’s AE-1 and my order of BW film from Amazon I’m ready to relegate my digital photos to my smart phone. Next step med format 120. Harry Horenstein’s writing kept me interested and I have returned and highlighted many of the tips/lesson in the book. Time to find a light meter and get outside.

very basic text applicable to a wet chemistry darkroom, reduced relevance in the modern digital age this is a very good textbook that describes standard composition rules and selection of subjects and has considerable chapters in establishing total range of the final print in a wet darkroom using a larger with burning and dodging techniques, selection of papers, and filters. It has minimal relevance in the modern digital ink jet printer scenarios. I purchased it as a recommended guide to improve black-and-white photography skills but it is more relevant to a bye going error of wet chemistry…

Seek no further! Not one more of these Photoshop books teaching you how to turn a color photo into a fake black and white… We’re talking REAL B&W PHOTOGRAPHY here, the kind you take with an analog camera and involves developing the negatives at home. This book goes into details with simple-to-follow instructions and leaves nothing out. Perfect for a newcomer or someone like me who developed at home in the Seventies and needed a refresher. This is the one!
