This class will explore techniques of the Zone System to produce an excellent negative for the most direct translation to a richly descriptive black and white photographic print. The concepts learned in the Zone System can apply to landscape photography as much as to portraiture, action, or conceptual work. There is a methodology for arriving at this goal, and this is what we will cover in this workshop. Students will calibrate their film/developer combination of choice for optimal descriptive results, use a densitometer to aid in assessing negative densities, and test procedures for precise expansion and contraction of scene contrast. Inclass critiques will help students create images of farreaching creative impact.
