In my 4x5 and medium format work, I shoot exclusively black and white, TMAX 100. I have recently begun a major foray (many $$$) into black and white hybrid digital with a Microtek 1800f scanner, Nikon 9000 scanner, and Epson 3800 printer. The few inkjet prints I have produced are very encouraging, even compared to my own darkroom prints, and I've been printing in the darkroom for 40+ years.
I have used Photoshop for a few years with my small format 35mm color work (scanned slides) and with direct digital color capture (Nikon DSLR). I am moderately familiar with using Photoshop in general and am currently using the CS3 beta. It is a quite impressive program, in my view. I have read Blatner and Fraser's Photoshop CS book and Martin Evening's CS2 book.
Neither of these resources answer my many questions about using Photoshop for black and white.
Does anyone know of a good resource for a person like myself, years of shooting 4x5, moderate though not extensive experience scanning, and moderate experience with Photoshop? Surely with the advent of high quality black and white printers such as the Epson 2400, and the *800 series, 3800, 4800, etc, and the new Canon and HP dye printers, someone can see a place for a book or monograph on monochrome image work with Photoshop.
Thanks for any help.
