Well said. I also found it helpful to watch the videos of him, weston, and others, either working with the camera or in the darkroom. Seeing the approach seems to give insight into the process and consideration that went into the print. There's on video of Adams from 1958 where they show him making a contact print that I found revealing. The way he read the negative nad everything else.
