The Camera (The Ansel Adams Photography Series, No. 1)
Ansel Adams (1902-1984) produced some of this century\'s truly memorable photographic images and helped nurture the art of photography through his creative innovations and peerless technical mastery. This handbook--the first volume in Adams\' celebrated series of books on photographic techniques--has taught a generation of photographers how to harness the camera\'s artistic potential.
Along with visualization, image management, Adams\' famous Zone System, and other keys to photographic artistry, The Camera covers 35 mm, medium-format, and large-format view cameras and offers detailed advice on camera components such as lenses, shutters, and light meters. Beautifully illustrated with photographs by Adams as well as instructive line drawings, this classic manual belongs on every serious photographer\'s bookshelf.
The Negative (The Ansel Adams Photography Series, No. 2)
The Negative is the second volume in the acclaimed and highly influential The Ansel Adams Photography Series. This second volume is anchored by a detailed discussion of Adams\' Zone System and his seminal concept of visualization. It presents detailed discussion of artificial and natural light, film and exposure, and darkroom equipment and techniques. Numerous examples of Adams\' work clarify the principles discussed. Handsomely illustrated with photographs by Adams as well as instructive line drawings, this classic manual can dramatically improve your photography.
The Print (The Ansel Adams Photography Series, No. 3)
The Print is the third and final book in The Ansel Adams Photography Series—the seminal guides fully revised by Ansel Adams shortly before his death in 1984.
The Print, now available in paperback like the other volumes in the series, belongs on every photographer\'s shelf. It covers the entire printmaking process, from designing and furnishing a darkroom and experimenting with your first print, to mastering advanced techniques such as developer modifications, toning, and bleaching, and burning and dodging. This thorough guide is filled with indispensable darkroom techniques and tips, and amply illustrated with photographs and technical drawings. It is an indispensable tool for mastering the complex art of photographic printmaking.
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.
