Ansel Adams produced some of the 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 Adam's celebrated series of books on photographic techniques - has taught a generation of photographers how to harness the camera's artistic potential. It remains as vital today as when it was first published. Along with visualization, image management, Adams' famous Zone System, and other keys to photographic artistry, The Camera covers 35mm, 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 as well as instructive line drawings, this classic manual belongs on every serious photographer's bookshelf.
