Here, noted author and photographer John Garrett distills over 30 years of photography and printmaking experience that will help both first-timers and those more familiar with the black-and-white picture-making process. In a refreshingly no-nonsense approach, he guides readers through the entire photographic process, from basic visualization and composition techniques to sophisticated darkroom procedures.

Good book for the digital user to frame subjects and think in B & W, which is becoming a lost art. Also the film and paper methods of the past can help the digital user recreate tones of olden days. However a modern photoshop guide is lacking.

Great for film users - not really useful for digital users.
