This book is a photographer's guide, a manual for practices and procedures for the craft of black and white photography. The material covers all the aspects of understanding and controlling the negative, from pre-visualization through developing. This book includes a full explanation of the negative, the underlying process of development, procedures for controlling the negative, b&w photo chemistry principles and explanations of chemical elements, practical formulas for today's films and prints, and a final section with equivalents, weights & measures, with a full list of formulas & fixers for easy access in the lab. Black and white photography is a malleable process, allowing every photographer to use the principles, and wide array of options in b&w processing, to realize pre-visualized expressions of their photographs. This process begins before the shutter is released, and is only concluded after the finished print is drying.
