Thanks for reading! Andrew.



The Magic of Black & White: Part III - Nine Photos eBook cover

Today the third eBook in my Magic of Black & White series goes on sale on Craft and Vision. It’s called The Magic of Black & White: Part III – Nine Photos and picks up where the second eBook (The Magic of Black & White: Part II – Craft) left off.

In this eBook I take you through nine black and white images with the intention of explaining the more advanced Photoshop* techniques behind them. I discuss toning, split toning, exposure blending, soft focus and the creation of diptyches and triptyches. But it’s not just about Photoshop technique. Photoshop is an essential part of the digital black and white photographer’s toolbox – but to be anything more than a technical exercise it needs to be aligned with creative vision.

And that’s the theme behind this eBook – as photographers we struggle to figure out our world view, our photographic direction and other aspects that all make up our creative vision. The thoughts and emotions that drive our vision are just as important as the Photoshop techniques required to achieve them. Vision and craft go hand in hand and this eBook helps you think about how you see the world and how you can set yourself a creative brief to go and take some photos that express your own world view.

* Photoshop Elements users aren’t left out – five of the nine techniques work in Photoshop Elements too.
