Learn about grey scale, how colors become tones, high and low-key lighting, light direction, infrared, film choice, the digital darkroom, noise, printing, presentation, and how to reintroduce color selectively. Lively accessible text, superb images, and a clear, easy-to-navigate design make this handy small-format guide perfect for use in the field.
