Zone system in color & what happned to the exposue forum Hi I think this post should have been posted in the exposure forum but I couldn't find it so... In his book "Using The View Camera", Steve Simmons write about the similarity between zone system for B&W and color. For slides he suggest to place the dark areas in zone III-1/2 and the whites in zone VIII. I know how to do it with B&W where I have control over the developing time but color I send to a lab and they do exactly what is specified by the manufacturer of the film. Therefore, the idea of "placing in zone VIII" is something I don't know how to control... Years ago, before reading this book people suggested to shoot B&W for shadow and color for highlights... One of this approaches is missing something or, (most likely) I do. I have ordered a bunch of slide negatives and want to start shooting next week. Any advice on how to do it with LF camera will be most appreciated.
