Excerpt from the eBook’s Introduction:
This book is about removing the layer of reality that we know as color and bringing forth other elements. In the presence of colors, our eyes trick the brain into putting less emphasis on other parts and barely noticing them. However, when you remove colors from your images, you will shift attention, mood and the perceived reality of the viewer by letting the other elements be the guide of perception.
Learning to master black and white photography will lift your general photographic skills to another level. It is well worth the effort it takes to dig deeper than merely making a superficial and automatic conversion of color photos into black and white to see if they by chance look good.
In this book, I draw on my work within landscapes, macro, long exposure, nature, city- and urban photography, all within monochrome photography. In my photographic work, you will not find any portraits, or many street photos featuring people and their mood or expression as a dominating characteristic. Therefore, you will also not find much about these topics in this book since it is beyond my area of both knowledge and interest. That doesn’t mean that you cannot benefit from this book since all the topics covered with a little imagination you can transfer it to e.g. people and street photography
