YPS Saturday Meet - An introduction to the Zone System by Mr Ashok Kandimalla on 14 Oct on Google Meet at 5-30 PM IST

YPS Saturday Meet | Oct 14, Sat | 5:30 PM IST | Technical Talk | Google Meet

The famous Zone System was devised and developed by Ansel Adams who is arguably the greatest landscape photographer ever. It is a well defined process to give photographers complete control of the process, end to end, right from capturing an image to the final print.

In this talk, Mr Ashok Kandimalla will explain the usage of the Zone System in simple terms and discuss its relevance in the digital age.
