The beauty of the landscape is experienced in a unique and beautiful way when it is captured as a black and white photograph. Without the presence of color, the natural world is revealed using a very personal point of view, that of the photographer.. Shades of gray reveal the subtle nuances that are not immediately obvious when we see the world in full color.
Photographer Gary Wagner began exploring this world on film using a large-format camera and chemistry, but he has embraced the flexibility and control that digital provides, especially with his black and white imagery.
In his new book Digital Black and White Landscape Photography: Fine Art Techniques from Camera to Print, Gary shares how he sees a scene, captures it with his camera and uses post-processing to complete his vision.
