New from Rocky Nook: The Art of Black and White Photography by Torsten Andreas Hoffmann

The Art of Black and White Photography by Torsten Andreas Hoffmann

The Art of Black and White Photography by Torsten Andreas Hoffmann focuses on image composition and image capture, with an emphasis on the creative aspects of black and white photography, as well as on the digital workflow.

After introducing the ground rules of composition, Hoffman illustrates their applications with various photographic genres such as architecture, street photography, portraiture, and surreal photography with his own black and white images.

In the second part of the book, Hoffmann illustrates the elements of a “photographic language”, which distinguishes creative photography from random shooting. The final part of the book is dedicated to post-processing techniques, mostly in Photoshop (CS3), emphasizing the functions that are necessary for creating outstanding black and white images.

The Art of Black and White Photography is available now for $45.
