"The subject of Andreas Weidner's new textbook 'Perspektive Fine-Art' - German text! - is classical, analog and well thought-out black-and-white photography, from the taking of the picture to the effective finishing of the baryte print. With this book, we finally have another sophisticated textbook on black-and-white photography that familiarizes the practitioner with the current state of analog technology and materials and shows him how he can use them to realize his own image ideas.
One part of the photo technique book 'Perspektive Fine-Art' by Andreas Weidner is dedicated to image composition. Here he shows how to use the various technical devices, be it light meters, filters or lens focal lengths for one's own idea of the picture in a technically correct way, but also individually. Corresponding to its importance for 'fine art photography', laboratory work in particular takes up a lot of space." (© Lindemanns Verlag, 2004)
