Landscape photography is a popular photographic genre—and for good reason. The great outdoors is an ever-ready subject. It is variable, as well; it is affected by changing light, decomposition, weather, human interaction, and myriad other factors. Its features range from natural to manmade elements—and many landscapes are comprised of both. Photographers who point their camera’s lens at a scene do so in an effort to communicate their feelings about the landscape. Rather than simply document the scene, they seek to capture the spirit of place—perhaps to tell a story or depict a mood. They aim to share with viewers the ways in which the scene speaks to them. Accomplishing these goals may seem simple at the outset, but the task is rife with challenges. In this book, Gary Wagner shows readers how to create powerful, evocative black & white landscape photographs filled with beautiful light, a full range of tones, and exquisite detail. Beginning with a look at the gear you’ll need to get the best-possible images, Wagner covers cameras, lens types, tripods, and filters. He then discusses the postproduction processes he uses to enhance his images, producing breathtaking photographic records of natural and man-altered locales. Following a run-through of the basic tenets of landscape photography, Wagner presents 60 of his favorite images for review. Readers will find images in six categories: (1) Lakes and Streams, (2) Trees and Rocks, (3) Coastal Seascapes, (4) Winter, and (5) Man-Altered Landscapes. This presentation model allows readers to focus on the aspects of landscape photography that most appeal to them or challenge them most. With each image presented, readers will learn the strategies that went into conceptualizing and creating the shot—from exposure, to composition, to postproduction, and more. With information on every aspect of creating striking, moving landscape images—from choosing gear, to studying light, to calculating ideal exposures, to composing images, to retouching/manipulating the images for breathtaking results, to setting up your workflow to ensure that the printed/output image meets the strictest criteria, this book will prove indispensable to photographers new to landscape photography or those seeking to take their image creation to a whole new level.

Once again black and white photographs are popular. The idea of photos taking on the look of yesteryear is becoming increasingly more popular. So much so that the everyday snap shooter can now go to the local drugstore and ask for black and white prints and in many instances sepia toned as well. But for the more advanced picture taker the idea of all that mystery of taking photos in color and making beautiful black and white enlarged prints for the wall in the home or a photo book on the coffee table - the drugstore just doesn't hack it. setting up a film processing lab in the basement isn't appealing either, why go back to the dinosaur age? This book is intended for just that person. "Black & White" will unveil all that mystery and more. It demonstrates "how to" in layman's terms so the digital world of black and white will be a fun and a delightful creative experience. In the early 1950's 35mm film was black & white or color slides that were projected on a screen for a room full of people to enjoy. Color was the "new thing" but printing in color was rare for the average photographer, even then color printing in magazine ads was not common place. I was one of the first in the Cleveland area to shoot in color for commercial work it was the exciting and the advanced thing to be able to do for your client. So here we are 55 years later with this book that will lead you back to were I was in the black and white era of photography. In those days I was trying to understand and find my way around in the new color world just like many today are trying to understand black & white. But we won't stay in the past long - just long enough for you the reader to understand the basic fundamentals and then bring everyone back into the new digital world of black & white photography where we will explore how-to-do-it digitally. __Andy Boyd
