Review:

Bernhard J Suess's work is marked by thoroughness and care. He derives his opinions from careful research and original thinking, and he's good at explaining things in language anyone can understand. His many contributions to Darkroom & Creative Camera Techniques magazine over the years have been of great usefulness to photographers -- Darkroom & Creative Camera Techniques

Enjoy a strong introduction to the basics of black and white photos through an exploration of techniques and craftsmanship which emphasizes building upon basic knowledge of lenses, film, developing techniques and shooting techniques. These are basic instructions tailored for novices and should educate and delight audiences who want strong illustration of techniques. -- Midwest Book Review

From composing, to exposing, to processing, to mounting, to selling, this is a masterful book. Suess explains everything well very well with helpful diagrams and charts. . . . Bolstering the explanations, Suess offers a wealth of practical suggestions to improve your photography, many of which are just as useful when shooting color. . . . Even experienced photographers will find useful information in this book -- Popular Photography

The reader or student is given the information necessary to learn the new skills, but not over-loaded with details that will confuse or complicate the learning process. . . . Mastering Black and White Photography would be an excellent choice as a text for a college or adult level basic photography class -- Shutterbug
