My congratulations to Mr. Graves for a worthwhile contribution in a field where so much that is written only muddies the waters. --Bob Shell, Shutterbug
Here is the Zone System without tears. --Popular Photography
[N]ow there is a book available that tells exactly how the zone system can be used in smaller format photography, and how uncomplicated it actually is. What better motivation can there be for a photographer. --Walter Frost, The Boston Globe
From the Publisher
Graves' approach is based on the experiences and successes of hundreds of students. Special attention is given to the needs of roll film users with methods adapted especially for 35mm cameras. Over 80 illustrations, including full pages of color, provide clear examples of the techniques described. You won't need to learn logarithms or buy special equipment. This is not just the easiest to understand explanation of the Zone System available; it is a way to change your whole perception about the photographic image.

At any rate.....this is a Very Good book. The Zone System Is/Was a pretty complex theory. It involved development just as much as metering. But if you are shooting 35mm today, and want to improve your skills, thios book will certainly help.
Books like this are a reference as much as they are a....Read it one time, say ..."Oh Yeah, OK, I get it now."
This is something you will be able to refer back to, many times perhaps, over the years.
It is quite affordable at this point. . If you need help with everyday metering this book WILL help you.
