    On LF Photography books

    Ok gang,
    Since July been working hard on technique and development.
    Finally got the dev down for my scanning needs.
    Actually selling some on my art show circuit down here in the FL Keys.
    Technique I know, will take years to actually call myself good at.
    Have finally sold off all small format/ digital to be a 100% LF guy.
    Heck, I have even had some people say, "wow reminds me of Clyde Butcher"
    Thats exciting to me and also humbling.
    Anyway, I have the basic books of Ansel Adams. Still need "40 Pictures"
    Galen Rowell books, 1 actually signed by him from the 80's
    Ernst Haas books
    Some from ICP press
    Norman McGrath and Fred Picker and some others.
    My library down here is limited. Was able to get Clydes books and read them, but not much else.

    What other books can be recommended for LF B&W.
    Looking for essay and thoughts. Not just a coffee table book.

    The list is so long...

    Books by the Westons (Edward and Brett in particular) and about the Westons.
    Mirrors, Messages, Manifestations by Minor White
    Urban Romantic (and sequels) George Tice

    IIRC, Rowell and Haas were mostly small format, color guys.
    Photographs by Richard M. Coda
    my blog
    Primordial: 2010 - Photographs of the Arizona Monsoon
    "Speak softly and carry an 8x10"

    Way Beyond Monochrome by Ralph W. Lambrecht and Chris Woodhouse (Paperback - Jun 2003)

    The best modern book on really thinking about development and exposure.
