THe one film photography related book you would keep
Let's say, for sake of argument and curiosity, that you photography bookworms had to choose only one of the photography books you own and donate/sell/whatever the rest. Which one would you keep?
Limit your answer to only one book please. I'll go first.
'The Negative' - Basic Photo 2. Fifth printing, 1971.
Why? Well, it has become my go to photographic Bible to refresh myself from time to time and this edition really helped me to make my Weston Master IV light meter more a part of my process rather than just a cool old light meter. I love this book and it is the last one I would part with.
How about you guys?
Yosemite And The Range Of Light, signed by Ansel Adams.
I alsmost eBay'ed it last year, for $2,300.00.
Luckily, I came to my senses ...

I have a copy of Yosemite and the Range of Light and it is signed by Ansel Adams, I bought it in a used book store, nobody bothered to look in side I guess.

I didn't think of BTZS. I second Mike. I think I would have to hide one.
I would have to second The Negative, but then again, I don't have many books.
Chris I was thinking you where thinking of reference books not coffee table ones. I think.
Beyond the Zone System,by Phil Davis
Out of just the instructional photography books, I would keep Modern Carbon Printing.
Out of my books of photographs, Between Dark and Dark by Thomas Cooper, and I would mourn the rest...

At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.
