Zone System Digital

Gloss - "Brecon Beacons Pictures"
Wales National Park
Is the Zone System relavent today as it was 70 years ago? I would say it certainly is and without my knowledge and training on the Zone System when I was printing and using film, I don't think I could understand what I'm trying achieve in the digital darkroom today. I'm currently working through a digital workflow of how I use the Zone System in the digital world, this will be available as a E-book soon.

"If you don't use the Zone System, then what system will you use to know what you've got as you photograph?" Ansel Adams true words even today.

Visit: to get inspiration and tips on black and white landscape photography and printing...

Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.

Hope you enjoy your earth day, where will you be visiting, I will be shooting coastal images for my latest project....

Ansel Adams, an inspiration...

A photograph is usually looked at - seldom looked into.
