Digital Landscape Photography: In The Footsteps of Ansel Adams and the Masters - Adams was the master of the landscape image - and he still is. His work is still revered and used as a benchmark for quality imaging. At the time he made his images, it required extensive knowledge of exposure, developing and printing.
Now, in the digital age, we can use Adams' techniques, apply them to digital photography and come up with great images. This book examines how his processes can be applied to the digital shooter. There is an examination of how the Zone System is related to digital imaging.
There are various sections on composition, light, mood and the darkroom. Michael Frye uses his own stunning images to show you how digital photography can be applied to the basics that Adams left us.
