    1. Since I m into film photography than inferior digital photography methods, this book really appealed to me, but it also has detailed text, how to instructions, photographic examples and illustrations to get the most out of your photos and important moments Definitely worth reading if you re into art, history, photography or guidebooks.



    2. This book was a fantastic manual for any photographer I got it because I just got my first SLR camera, and wanted a book that would help me make sense of all the things the new camera lets me control manually, like the aperture and shutter speed This book was perfect for that, explaining well how f stops and shutter speeds effect photographs It even finally cleared up something I d never understood, which is why larger f stop numbers denote smaller openings That still sort of bugs me and seems c [...]


    3. This book has been on my to read list for quite some time now and now I realize why my photography instructors recommended it Black and White Photography A Basic Manual is a very rich, well organized photography manual Horenstein gives just enough instruction and detail without being overwhelming or leaving the reader feeling as though lighting or processing one s own film is too complicated.This book is geared toward photographers who shoot film, though folks who shoot digital can learn a great [...]


    4. The title of the book is misleading This may be because this book was published in the 1980 s Back then, black and white photography was popular than color photography This is a complete film photography book It starts from the camera and takes you fully through the process and ends with mounting your print on a wall There isn t anything specific about bw photography, like different techniques on how to get particularly styles of bw photos It is strictly about photography as a whole, which is s [...]


    5. I had been taking photos with a 35mm for 6 years prior to reading this book, with two years of classes and darkroom experience under my belt.It taught me so much that I had never learned in school or by my father who has done photography since he was 19 Highly recommended for a beginner photographer interested in learning fundamental skills for black and white manual photography A great reference guide that will always have a place on my bookshelf.


    6. I purchased a new copy of this as one of my first real acquisitions of photography books that had not been handed down to me or had to be purchased for school That original dog eared copy has been retired to a safe corner shelf now held together with acid free ribbon.An interesting book to look back on before the digital age, but still in a modern era of photography.


    7. My wonderful photography teacher, Tom Young at Greenfield Community College formerly at RISD , taught us from this book by RISD prof, Henry Horenstein Fantastic manual, very straightforward An absolute must for anyone who is learning BW photography.


    8. I found this book to be quite informative For myself, having already been familiar with the shooting side of photography this manual was invaluable as a guide to begging darkroom techniques and procedures.Highly recommended for photographers of all levels.


    9. Using this in conjunction with a class I m teaching on darkroom black and white photography I think it s really an invaluable tool to use, and allows my students to really understand all aspects of the darkroom much clearly.





    10. Thoroughly covers basic darkroom study Good classroom manual There are others, but this is a good one to start with.


    11. Nicely written book Good at showing how you process chemical film, as well as tips on photography A little outdated now, I imagine Bummer



    12. A very relevant read that is fully applicable to both traditional and digital photography Any time I m asked for a book that explains the basics of photography, I recommend this.


    13. This really is the best book to read if you want to know everything about the basics of BW photography and darkroom It should be required reading in all photography courses.


    14. A good book if BW film developing and printing is what interests you Since I am into digital photography, only first 8 chapters of the book were useful for me.
