Description:This is the second book that I have encountered that claims to address the zone system in a digital world and then devotes way too much space to film photography. This is a dry and technical book that strips all joy from the world of photography. Most of the book is about film and I simply gave up. Here my iPad was a money saver because i didn't pay full price for a hardcopy of this book. I've said it before: A good book on the zone system would include 200 or 300 photos of different subjects. Representative zones would be marked on each photo. Each photo would be accompanied by an explanation of the metering and exposure choices. Most of the photos would be in color so the average photographer could align colors and zones. Unfortunately, that would be too practical for many of the authors who would prefer to bore people with out-of-date theory because that is what they learned long ago when digital didn't exist.
