Editorial Reviews

This book, orginally published in 1963, now appears in a totally revised and updated edition, covering the entire range of Polaroid photography, for the SX-70 and other automatic cameras to the professional 4x5 and 8x10 formats. Mr. Adam emphasizes the role of careful craftsmanship, whether the purpose of image is creative or functional. In particular, he relates Polaroid materials to Image Management, the Zone System, and practical sensitometry, contrast control through pre-exposure and development modifation, filters, and other techniques. Properly used, Adams believes, Polaroid images may possess beautiful tonal qualities not possible with other processes.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Mary on July 4, 2013
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Filled with information on pretty much every Polaroid film ever made in addition to some general photography tips to help you along the way, in depth descriptions of the various types of films, loading mechanisms and lighting situations best for each film type, with examples and diagrams. Only giving this book 4 stars simply due to the amount of information that is no longer directly applicable due to age. The book itself is a great item for any Ansel Adams fan or Polaroid fan to add to their collection! Ansel Adams' words of wisdom are reason enough to purchase.
