Black Light is a new E-book by Jason Friend
Jason Friend is an award winning photographer based in the North-East of England. Not only an acclaimed landscape photographer, Jason is also the author of ten books, which he has completed over a decade of working as a professional photographer.
Jason’s images have been reproduced in numerous printed and online publications throughout the world, including the Telegraph, Guardian, Australian Geographic, BBC Wildlife Magazine, Sunday Times Travel Magazine and Rough Guides.
Jason regularly undertakes photography commissions for corporate clients including local authorities, commercial operations and charitable operations. In addition to his editorial and commercial photography activities, Jason also delivers a range of private and group photography workshops throughout Northumberland and Tyneside.
In recent years, black and white has seen a resurgence of interest and a new appreciation. It shouldn’t be a surprise, since black and white offers a certain mood and timeless appeal. Digital black and white photography possesses a classic, if not elegant, quality.
Some people say that colour remains King, I can understand that as there is nothing like an eye popping image that just draws the viewer into it. However, the impact that good/great black and white images can have is I think sometimes even greater.
Black and white photography is still regarded as a favourite with many photographers – dull landscape scenes become more dramatic with black and white photography. Black and white landscape photography is becoming popular again and is more suitable for taking images when the day is dull or too bright. If you like your black and white images and you like them captured well then just take a look at this E-book. There are 43 stunning black and white landscape/seascape/cityscape images that will have you looking at them for ages and then coming back to have another look.
This is not a ‘how to book’, it is not a training aid, it is not a tricks and tips book. This is a book of stunning black and white landscape and seascape photography, a Portfolio of Jason’s work. Jason has kindly allowed me to include four of the 46 images in this short review, I picked the ones that were my favourite of the bunch, having said that, they are all very sepecial.
Jason loves shooting iconic structures as well as landscape and seascape scenes. He loves the challenge of trying to create a unique perspective on an extremely popular viewpoint. I think he quite succeeded with this shot, this is probably one of my very favourites from the set of images.
I absolutely love this book, if you are lucky enough to own an Ipad, then I suggest you download the E-book and transfer it over to it. You will find yourself returning to these stunning images time and time again as well as showing your friends.
The E-book costs just £2.49! No that is not a typo, £2.49 a very good deal as you will get your
hands eyes on some fabulous black and white images. The book can be directly downloaded HERE
