“black and white has a look and feel that’s unique and beautiful, with an inherent sense of mystery”

For me, at least, there’s something special about black and white photography. When it’s done well, it has a look and feel that’s unique and beautiful, with an inherent sense of mystery that’s hard to beat. Black and white is perfect for photojournalism, ideal for creative experimentation and, when it comes to portraiture, it can be used to either flatter the subject or create a strong sense of character. But achieving good black and white is extremely difficult, and much harder than it perhaps appears. That’s why in this issue we’ve distilled seven secrets behind great black and white, from creative thinking through to developing a style. Turn to p36 to begin reading it. Also this issue, leading landscape photographer Mark Bauer has looked at the essential skills required to shoot sharper…

Adrian Dewey DP Gallery address: adidewey Image title: Shannon What camera, lens and settings did you use to capture this stunning shot? This was shot on a Nikon D610 with a 50mm f1.8 lens at 1/1600, f8, ISO 500 to get a slightly grainy retro feel. How did you decide on the composition? We had done some natural-light shots in the hotel room in the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas and afterwards decided to wander around outside. Shannon, the model, suggested the roof of the car park and we got a great view of the hills in the desert in the background. Can you explain a bit more about the techniques you used to capture it?
