    • Very informative and helpful. Gorgeous example photographs. I'm planning on reading the other similar books in the future.


    • While this book has some wonderful images, I was a bit disappointed. It didn't provide me with any real knew knowledge to improve my photography. It lacked two things: first, it could have used some more Adams and Walker ; and second, it lacked analysis, in particular of those Adams and Walker images that are present in light of digital photography and how digital photography changes (or doesn't change) our approach to landscape photography. Nevertheless, it contains the best discussion of Adams [...]


    • As a keen budding photographer I picked this book out to gain some background & knowledge on landscape photography. I chose Ansel Adams to study for obvious reasons & in this book I first read about the zone system that Ansel Adams & Fred Archer developed. As a quick read this book has given me heaps of vital first steps into capturing our landcape especially through watching the lighting. It also gives a small insight into the masters Ansel Adams, Edward Weston & Eliot Porter, w [...]


    • Since this book has many photos taken by Ansel Adams in Yosemite, I used this book as one of my photo guides during my recent tour of Yosemite.Adams was a great teacher of photographic technique and print development. This book describes Adams' Zone System as applied in the digital age. Michael Frye has provided many prints of landscape photos to demonstrate many techniques for improving our photographic vision.


    • A great book about a great photographer by a great photographer. Ansel Adams is a master and his pictures show, just as Michael Frye is showing in his beautiful landscape images. The hints and tips are very useful, and his thesis that post-processing was just as common in the darkroom as it is today, was an eyeopener ;-)I marked this book as Read, but it will never leave my table!


    • If you're brand new to photography and want a book about landscapes, this is probably a good choice. It's pretty basic but still has plenty of good information. And it does refer back to Ansel Adams' work enough to give you some good ideas.If you're an experienced photographer, skip this one and go straight to Adams' own books.




    • Thought this was excellent--really helpful, cornet examples of both shooting and post-processing for the best landscape photographs.
