Biographie de l'auteur

Ansel Adams (1902-1984) was one of the great artists and environmentalists of the twentieth century. In a remarkable career spanning more than sixty years, he made over 40,000 photographs. Adams was a master teacher as well as a master photographer, believing that his approach to photography was universally applicable. From 1955 until 1984 he conducted annual photography workshops, first in Yosemite and later in Carmel. But his most important and lasting contribution to the artistic, practical, and technical aspects of black-and-white photography was through his legendary technical series (revised several times since the initial publication in the early 1950s): The Camera, The Negative, and The Print.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 un peu obsolète 28 février 2012
Format:Broché|Achat authentifié par Amazon
Avec tout le respect qu'on ne peut qu'exprimer à l'égard du grand photographe que fut Ansel Adams, force est de constater que ce livre-là ne présente malheureusement plus qu'un intérêt historique.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Good Book for any Camera user 2 novembre 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is a book which is filled with both photographs and descriptions of the technique to create photographs. I took a hard-cover copy on a week long trip to photograph parts of Ireland, and was very glad to carry the book with me and read it. Ansel did use a view camera for many of his most famous photos; I use medium and small format, myself. Even though Ansel used a view camera, with its associated movements, the book makes an effort to describe technique as it applies to small and medium format cameras. This effort reached its goal for me. I got a lot of enjoyment out of reading this book, and practical information, too. The basic, straight-forward clarity of the writing in this book would make it a good read for anyone with an interest in photographic technique, from rank beginner to seasoned pro.
One technique I enhanced from this book was the use of a high camera position. Ansel took many of his photos from a tripod which was mounted on the roof of his station wagon. One of the benefits of such a location is the "semi-helicopter" look to the photos. The foliage is more interesting from this height, and the viewer can see more than he would be able to from ground level.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wanna learn to take pictures, start here. 6 octobre 1996
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Einstein wrote a book for lay people to explain the
theory of relativity. I've read it twice, and I still
don't know what Albert's talking about. Ansel Adams wrote
three books on photography, The Camera, The Negative, and
The Print, for lay people to explain how to take
good photographs. I've read 'em all, and at least
I know what Ansel's talking about, even if I can't take
photographs like his yet (gimme fifty years of practice).
Whether you like Adams' style or not, in technique, he
is to photography what Einstein is to physics: a single
authoritative master who's work can be relied upon.
Of the three books, _The Negative_ is the most important;
but if you are just getting started, the Camera is
where to begin.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Required Reading for the Serious Photographer 15 février 2001
Par R. Sandridge - Publié sur Amazon.com
I thought that this book was very thorough. I learned many useful things, and I also learned many things that don't really apply to me but I found interesting none-the-less. Ansel Adams writes very precisely, and the book is packed with lots of very useful figures/photographs that help in understanding the text that is being read.
The book might be a little boring for a casual picture taker. Also, I imagine that the book might be too basic for a professional who has been doing photography for a great number of years. But for a serious photographer getting started, it is an excellent book. And who better to read than the master Ansel Adams.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The ultimate book for purist photographers! 30 juillet 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
The Camera, book 1 of 3 in the Ansel Adams Photography Series, is well written with many illustrations of the subjects in each chapter. It also includes many of Ansel's own photo's as examples. The chapters are written for the the novice as well as for the journeyman who want to refresh one's memory on the basics. The latter chapters get more involved with technical information. Book 2 and 3, "The Negative" and " The Print" are eqully well written with an introduction to Ansel's own Zone system. A must read for serious photographers or the novice interested in advanced techniques and/ or terminology. Ansel will go down in history not only as a great photographer but teacher and writer as well. I highly recommend this series to anyone interested in taking better pictures.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Formal Photography Lessons Start Here 18 janvier 2006
Par W. Ng - Publié sur Amazon.com
Recently bought a DSLR, and really needed something to help me improve my knowledge on photography. Since lots of pros online recommend it, I got this book.

This book helped me understand the most important fundamentals of the camera. After reading other photography books, I learned a few things like smaller aperture causes a greater depth of field. All I got to do was set the aperture to the largest or smallest possible in my point-and-shoot aperture priority mode. It is because other books never taught me why apertures can affect the depth of field, and the explanations are largely insufficient for the reader to understand how to use the intermediate aperture settings (which ranges will become out of focus, for instance). It is not until this book that I got the "that's why it is like that" enlightenment.

I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand photography. Some people may find the book too academic, and the pictures here are black and white. But I learned more from this book compared to those that have very nice colorful photos. Some don't even have captions with the aperture, shutter, ISO, etc. used. But even if they do, without adequate explanation on why they chose those particular settings (never mind understanding them), it is really difficult for novices like me to improve our photography skills. This book solves that problem for me.
