    Well, I don't know about all, but certainly many. And it should give you a solid knowledge base on which to base future decisions. That is, you'll have a better idea what's going to result from exposure and developing decisions. You'll be able to bend the film to your will (insert hideously evil laugh here)!

    FWIW, many find Adams' book(s) a tough read. If it bores you to tears try another book like Picker's. I'm just sayin' it's not supposed to be a punishment.

    Reading Fred Pickers book is shorter and much more to the point.

    Could be called "Zone system for dummies" :-)

    Seriously though, Picker, in later years started making some crazy statements/assertions that discredited him in many peoples eyes, a few examples, cold light, fixer heavier than water, never photograph backlit subjects. He was a salesman first, an AA wannabe second.

    It is said that we remember the important things, if true, why photograph? I forget, so I photograph.

    I just bought his book on Amazon for 1 cents, maybe that is why it is so inexpensive.
