Format: Paperback
I looked through this book quickly at a local bookstore and it had a lot of really nice looking photos inside, that I thought would be inspiring for my own imagination. I bought it,...mistake. Like the other reviews mentioned, once you get inside this book, it is all about using plug-ins. Very disappointing. I did enjoy the photos, and they do make you think, but it is definitely short on any real value to show you how to create your own.

This is a great guide book for folks who want to know about the various "shades" of B&W. Really great explanations and images of many different approaches to B&W beyond simply desaturating an image. Many of the techniques included mimic the old darkroom techniques that were seeming lost when we went digital.

Included are reference to actions and plug-ins (both free and $$) that can help you create effects that make your photos come to life without sloshing thru a variety of chemicals in a small dark room.

Striking images is right on.

I borrowed this book from my public library before purchasing and boy am I glad I did. The book and its pictures look great at first glance but once you get into it you see it's all about using various Photoshop plug-ins and actions that the author happily tells you were to find them. If you are looking to create some dramatic effects on your own from scratch I would suggest you look elsewhere. But if plugins are your game still look elsewhere, there are tons of websites that provide just as much if not more information for free.

Then of course there is always your local public library.
