The revised edition includes more than fifty new illustrations offering still greater clarity in presenting Ansel Adams' legendary approach to photography. This revised edition provides information on: *variable contrast papers *digital cameras and view cameras * the Advanced photo system. BOOK 1 is organised to present the principles of black-and-white and colour photography to a broad range of photographers. It draws extensively on the philosophy and techniques of Ansel Adams, the best-known writer/teacher of photography of all time, and is profusely illustrated with Adams' own work as well as that of other photographers. John Schaefer skillfully interprets Adams' words, theories, and art as a foundation for a more clearly written, understandable and actively up-to-date guide to creative photography.
Ansel Adams is widely regarded as the greatest photographic artist of the twentieth century. John P. Schaefer is a highly regarded photographer and author and a Trustee of The Ansel Adams Publishing Rights Trust.
