'Basics Photography - Working in Black and White' provides a comprehensive guide to the basic theory and practice of black and white photography, from the relationship between colour and greyscale tones to the art of 'seeing' in black and white. Black and white, the book argues, has been the soul and conscience of photography since its conception. Black and white is not a lesser colour image - it is, in many ways, more powerful. It gets to the core of what is important in an image, leaving behind the distractions of colour. Illustrated with clear diagrams and inspiring imagery, the book offers an introduction to the subject.
