rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book has been on my to-read list for quite some time now and now I realize why my photography instructors recommended it. Black and White Photography: A Basic Manual is a very rich, well-organized photography manual. Horenstein gives just enough instruction and detail without being overwhelming or leaving the reader feeling as though lighting or processing one’s own film is too complicated.
This book is geared toward photographers who shoot film, though folks who shoot digital can learn a great deal from this book, too. And who knows? It may inspire some people to put down their DSLR and pick up a used Pentax K-1000 or Mamiya RZ67!
