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.

Zone System: Step by Step Guide for Photographers based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.
The Zone System is used by black-and-white photographers to help determine accurate exposure and development. This is a good introduction into the Zone System. It is thorough and written in an easy to follow style. While it is not very technical as a professional photographer might want, it is well written for the amateur photographer who would like to move the quality of their photographs up to the next level. It covers the system in detail including the zones, how they relate to f-stops and shutter speeds, techniques of development to contract or expand the zones and similar area. A book of this nature should be in every amature - para-professional photographer's library.
