Ansel Adams, Robert Hardy Baker avec The Negative
Ansel Adams (1902-1984) produced some of this century's truly memorable photographic images and helped nurture the art of photgraphy through his creative innovations and peerless technical mastery. This handbook - the second volume in Adams' celebrated series of books on photographic techniques - has taught a generation of photographers how to use film and the film development process creatively. Now available for the first time in paperback, it remains as vital today as when it was first published.
Anchored by a detailed discussion of Adams' Zone System and his seminal concept of visualization, The Negative covers artificial and natural light, film and exposure, and darkoom equipment and techniques. Numerous examples of Adams' work clarify the principles discussed. Beautifully illustrated with photographs by Adams as well as instructive line drawings, this classic manual can dramatically improve your photography.
