Another Terry Hope book. We've said complementary things about Terry before in other book reviews. To summarise, RotoVision did well scooping this top photo journalist who's written several of their books. His choice of pictures and captions will liven up any subject, and this one, covering the broader scope of all black & white, will make any photographer ditch colour and have a go at black & white. Repro is excellent so tones leap out from the pages and expert info gleaned from the 20 or so photographers will help you recreate the fantastic images. But it's not just about black & white the captions extend to general photographic competences such as compositional skills and exposure. You'll also see what effect filters have and how to control subject appearance through aperture or shutter speed adjustments. Highly recommended, even if you had never considered shooting using black & white film.
