Meet the Author

Ansel Adams (1902-1984) was one of the great artists and environmentalists of the twentieth century. In a remarkable career spanning more than sixty years, he made over 40,000 photographs. Adams was a master teacher as well as a master photographer, believing that his approach to photography was universally applicable. From 1955 until 1984 he conducted annual photography workshops, first in Yosemite and later in Carmel. But his most important and lasting contribution to the artistic, practical, and technical aspects of black-and-white photography was through his legendary technical series (revised several times since the initial publication in the early 1950s):The Camera, The Negative, and The Print.

    Ansel Adams The Negative

    I purchased this book for my photography class. I was not really sure about it when I purchased it. As people know some books really don't give out a lot of information. But this book has it all from F/Stops to Shutter speeds, how to's and more. I would definately recommend this book to anyone just starting out in Black and White photography.
