I don't mind you saying that as long as you can point out my fundamental errorsOriginally Posted by student
Is it because I forgot to mention the "Full" Zone System of 11 print zones? Or some non mainstream interpretation of the original Zone System?
The Zone System and Photograph editing are indeed two different animals or should I say: two different modes of transport. The Zone System is like a horse and Photo editing is like a car. I'm not stopping anyone from learning horse riding. I just think the time is better spent learning to drive a car because most people don't have the chance to ride a horse.
Seeing light? How to translate that to print? Sounds like what I have said in my previous post:
"The real zone system includes ways to expose and develop film to achieve print where every area of the photograph is printed at the zone (darkness or brightness) that the photographer intended. The discipline thus covers analysing the scene, lighting, light-metering, darkroom techniques (including chemicals used, time taken, type of paper used for printing), calibrating the entire system, etc., and has lots of reference tables and charts."
