The digital revolution has transformed photography. Many traditional black and white photographers are keen to dispense with the tedium of darkroom work and are turning to digital imaging to produce their fine prints. The new-found freedom of working in the 'light room' has rekindled interest in black and white imaging and is helping to accelerate the renaissance in monochrome photography. Black and White Digital Photography sets out everything you need to know to create stunning black and white pictures. Starting from the basics of calibrating your digital camera, to scanning and digitally enhancing your images, to making fine prints, Les Meehan guides you through all the practical techniques. All digital terminology and issues are explained and the software and equipment discussed is not manufacturer-specific. Topics featured include finding the correct pixel size and resolution for your images and saving and storing digital files; controling white balance, determining your camera's dynamic range and calibrating your scanner; choosing the right scanner, ink and printing paper and creating fine art prints.

This book also includes techniques unique to digital, as well as simulations of traditional methods. Illustrated throughout with high-quality images and written in clear, practical language, this is an invaluable hands-on guide to digital black and white photography.
