This month our focus is on black and white photography--from capture and conversion to processing and printing. We show you how to use film and digital technologies together to get the best of both black and white worlds. In addition, we have a plethora of Test Reports to further enhance your imaging. As an added bonus, we have a profile of master photojournalist Eli Reed on page 71.
