The Zone System allows photographers to capture their impression of the world in the most beautiful visual language: that of b/w photography. Based on the techniques of legendary photographer Ansel Adams, this guide offers a systematic approach that integrates a knowledge of light, exposure, development and print-making. By implementing these step-by-step instructions for each phase in a film or digital workflow, photographers can acheive much better results in their images.
