The Art of Black and White Photography

Techniques for Creating Superb Images in a Digital Workflow by Torsten Andreas Hoffmann
Digital photography has conquered the market at breakneck speed despite the fact that in the early years of the technology, professional photographers eyed its development with skepticism. As photographers migrated from analog to digital, they suffered through more than their share of growing pains, struggling with the new technology and doubting its viability. The following questions were among those being asked:
• Is it actually possible to make large, quality prints from digital images?
• Don’t digital photos look artifcial?
• Do the colors look natural?
• How does digitalization affect black and white photography?

In order to answer these questions and to get acquainted with digital photography, one thing was certain: it was necessary for photographers to devote time to learn about the technology. Not only was it essential for photographers to become familiar with a new, and rather complex camera technology, it was also necessary to thoroughly understand the new image manipulation programs. Many photographers initially shied away from these efforts, and as a result, traditional analog photography had to be defended by those who had not even acquired an in-depth knowledge of the digital process.
