The international success of Heinrich van den Berg, both as a photographer in his own right, and as writer of books such as Reflection and Shades of Nature which showcase his work, makes him the leading authority on black-and-white photography in South Africa. In this, the fourth book in the Photo Tips Series, he reveals his “trade secrets” for capturing and creating beautiful and striking black-and-white images, through familiar and easily-grasped tips.

Not all masters are teachers. How fortunate, then, for the reader and aspiring photographer that Heinrich van den Berg’s excess of talent and experience is so easily accessible through his considered, flowing explanations and tips. Simple and yet filled with meaning, each tip, whether professional or general, is easy for the reader to conceptualise, despite their being strikingly original. His holistic approach to the art of photography coupled with ease of explanation makes this book a must for any fan of black-and-white photography.
