Subject: Re: Exposure to the right and tone placement


Your comments are most appropriate and remind me of a passage from Ansel Adams in the negative:

I can recall seeing Edwin Westin, who was not particularly of scientific persuasion, using his meter in rather unorthodox ways. He would point it in several directions, take a reading from each and fiddle with the dial with a thoughtful expression. "It says one-quarter second at f/32, I'll give one second"

Does this sound familiar?

There is so much to be learned from re-reading Adam's book. The basics have not changed despite protestations that "digital is different" or "exposure is not based on zone V". For those who have forgotten, the Kodak card also has a white side, which you are free to use.
