Practical Zone System 3RD Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The subject of the zone system is now very much in the mainstream among amateur as well as professional photographers. This newly revised edition of a photography classic teaches photographers how to recognize the zones both on the print and in the field or studio, to pre-visualize their photograph and expose accordingly, to access their prints and negatives for contrast, and to test equipment for reliable results.

This book has been updated to include information on the latest developers and films. New illustrations have been added to reflect the most contemporary photographic styles, and information on digital imaging supplied in the second edition has been expanded into a new chapter.

The practical approach of this book, with its numerous time-saving development and film charts and easy-to-follow testing methods, is an important resource for the beginning, large-format, 35mm, and professional photographer.

Book News Annotation:

Makes the zone system for contrast control accessible to beginning, large format, 35 mm, and commercial photographers. Focus is on basic principles and applying the system in real life. A final section offers technical notes on b&w photos by seven well-known fine art photographers. Includes 13 technical appendices on films, papers, developers, equipment, and filters, as well as print and electronic sources for products. Also includes a 25-page primer on basic photography. This third edition incorporates information on new films and developers that have appeared since the last edition. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews@booknews.com)
