David & Charles 1994, paperback, 190 pages including index; illustrated throughout. Synopsis:
Black-and-white film, with its ability to capture a great range of tones, offers the photographer a chance to achieve memorable images. This book aims to provide readers with access to the skills and information needed to create striking and original monochrome prints of their own. Roger Hicks emphasizes the importance of mastering the craft techniques that underlie all good work, explaining in detail the characteristics of cameras, lenses and films, and the effective use of filters, exposure meters and tripods. He demonstrates ways of setting up a darkroom and reveals how, by the proper control of processing and printing, it is possible to make prints containing deep and rich blacks, brilliant whites and a full range of grey tones. The author also offers tips and advice on tackling the classic black-and-white themes, from landscapes and cityscapes to reportage and portraits, from action and travel photography to still life and photography as a fine art. Roger Hicks is a professional photographer and writer whose previous books include "35mm Panorama" and "Low-light and Night Photography".
