Based on the system used by master photographer Ansel Adams, the Zone System is a method of exposing and printing extremely high-quality black and white photographs. While this system can be daunting to new photographers, this book provides step-by-step instructions for learning the mechanics and the art of this innovative technique. Topics include using and calibrating a light meter, exposures for shadow, Standard Contact Time (SCT), plus and minus development, and gray card tests. These techniques are made accessible for both small and large format cameras.
