The Essential Guide to Black and White Photography

There has been a real buzz of excitement around dPS headquarters this past week because today we’re launching a new eBook that we’re really proud of – The Essential Guide to Black and White Photography – an eBook that will walk you through everything you need to know to take beautiful black and white images!


My first love with photography was with black and white photography. It was in a high school. The class that I remember sitting in a darkroom with two friends, watching images appear in front of me on paper, sitting in a chemical bath.

At first they were faint grey outlines of the image, but as the chemicals did their work, tone, shade and contrast were added to the image until it had fully appeared.

While our family photos were all shot in colour from the time I was born, as a teenager I would spend hours gazing into those first black and white images that I’d shot and developed. I’m not exactly sure what it was about them but there was a timeless, classic and magical quality to them that I still love today.

It turns out that many of us here at dPS have similar memories and love for the black and white image, and so when we started to talk about putting together this new eBook on the topic we did so with real anticipation and energy.

We looked around for a photographer to author this guide 12 months ago and came across the work of David Nightingale. David not only shoots beautiful images but he’s the creator of one of the most successful courses on the topic so we knew we’d found our dream author and set out to convince him to partner on the project.

Thankfully he agreed and after many months of preparation today we’re excited to announce The Essential Guide to Black and White Photography is available for you to purchase with a very special Early Bird Offer.

The eBook walks you through everything from learning to ‘see’ and take beautiful black and white images, to advice on gear right through to processing your images to perfection.
