Why Should You Trust This Guide?
Kent DuFault (The Author) became a photographer in September of 1974. He took a “Basic Photography” class in high school and was hooked for life. It wasn’t long before he had a darkroom in the basement of his parent’s house, and his buddies thought he’d lost his mind.
The framed photograph (left) was taken in October of 1975. The black & white print is 41 years old, and it still looks perfect.
Kent is a professional photographer. However, the pursuit of black & white imaging has been a lifelong passion. Kent doesn’t believe that every Black & White photograph MUST contain a full range of tone.
What he does believe in, is helping every photographer gain the the knowledge and skills to successfully create what they envision.
“It doesn’t matter if you love to photograph landscapes, people, macro, abstracts, or any subject that your artistic mind desires- the ‘rules’ of black & white conversion are consistent.
In order to become a true master of black & white photography, you must understand tone and contrast.
You must understand how to control them- and how to manipulate them. I guarantee that my guide will give you the groundwork to become a world-class black and white photographer!”
