reference books for b/w photography?
any recommendations on any titles worth looking at for the above?
esp interested to find out more on what makes a good b/w composition, or the likes of it...

i have been reading several basic b&w books and i found these useful
1) John Garrett's Black and White Photography Masterclass (simple illustrations and comprehensive author's notes)
2) Black & White Photography - A Basic Manual by Henry Horenstein (a bit too technical for me)
3) Black & White Photography by Michael Busselle (excellent cos it tells you how to approach a shot and what the author was thinking when he took it)
hope that helps.
