Please Recommend a Book for Learning B&W Photography
I am looking for a book that goes through the basics and then more detail of black and white photography. Especially, What sort of subjects are good for black and white, what kind of light is best, when to use coloured filters, and so on. A book that includes developing and darkroom advice would be nice but is not necessary.
Recommended Basic B&W Photo Book
After reading several hundred books during my more than 30 years as a photographer I'd like to recommend the following book as a good basic guide for learning Black and White Photography:
Ansel Adams Guide: Basic Techniques of Photography, Vol. 1 by John P. Shaefer
Vol. 2 is great for more advanced photographers. I used my copy several times for reference. Both are good value for money.
