Black & White Photography

The Timeless Art of Monochrome


Black & White Photography
The Timeless Art of Monochrome
by Michael Freeman

I review a lot of photography books and more often than not I don't find a lot of difference between them. It is sort of like dozens of copies of the same old thing. Then that special one arrives at my door and I know I have another real keeper for my library. Black & White Photography by Michael Freeman is not going to be just another library book here because it is going to spend most of the time right near where I can get to it.

The Peak Design “EveryDay Sling” is a new design for over the shoulder type bags. When I first looked at this bag I was not too impressed, then I packed my Nikon D800 and the two lenses I use into it and changed my mind real fast. In the main compartment I put the two lenses, which are on the large side, and the camera with another lens on it, into the camera compartment and had room left over. This section has removable dividers, like most do, but these are more sturdy and well padded than most I see. This is not the only compartment this bag has though. (see illustration #3) - (A) - is the zipper for an expandable pocket, which the straps (B) allow to open farther than when it is in the unused state. This pocket is large enough to even hold another lens or two, or a flash unit, cleaning kits, plus maybe battery and memory card pouches. These same straps will also hold a small tripod under a flap.
