Expanding on the fundamental principles of photography presented in Book 1, this second volume enables the committed amateur or student photographer to advance to higher levels of creative expression. With essential chapters on exposure and development it offers what is perhaps the clearest, most effective explanation of Ansel Adams' remarkable Zone System ever written. Dr. Schaeffer demonstrates the most important approaches to print making for those interested in darkroom and digital work, including such alternative processes as cyanotypes, salt printing, platinum/palladium printing and gum printing. The theory and practice of colour photography and printing are explained and a thorough introduction to digital imaging is featured - all illustrated by numerous examples of work by Ansel Adams and other photographers.
For anyone who wants to improve as a skilled image-maker this volume stands alone with its clear information on all of these techniques and its up-to-date 'translation' of Adams' profoundly influential and effective theories and practices.
