    I am looking for some good websites that educate folks on B&W Photography (from equipment to picture-taking to darkroom work). APUG is a great site in the forum-style, but what are some of the best sites layed out with directions, diagrams, etc. on the art of black and white photography?

    When I do a search through google, I always get websites that want to sell me something, instead of sites that simply exist to inform and educate. Does anyone know the best search engine that can weed out all these sites that want to sell you crap?

    Love to hear your thoughts on these two matters,

    Huram

    New York Institute of Photography has an excellent B&W series of Monthly Tips by Bernhard Suess. They are eventually suppose to create an online B&W photo course.

    Hey Huram!

    Here's a few sites I found helpful:

    http://www3.telus.net/drkrm/index.html (Black & White Darkroom Techniques)
    http://photoinf.com/ (deals with composition mostly)
    http://www.ephotozine.com/learn/ (they have some good articles...like printing with variable grade papers, etc).

    I know it can be kind of 'hit & miss', but I found that if you "google" B&W photogaphy, then at the bottom of the page, pick "search within results" and enter 'technique' or another specific term it will help narrow the results.
    HTH!
