Can anyone recommend a good book on the Zone System?
This is the one I have. It's by one of the original developers of the system,with two co-authors.[ame=http://www.amazon.com/New-Zone-System-Manual/dp/0871001004]Amazon.com: The New Zone System Manual (9780871001009): Minor White, Richard Zakia, Peter Lorenz: Books[/ame]
That looks like a good one. I just ordered a used copy.
Fred Picker's "Zone VI Workshop" came highly recommended and I found it very to the point and easy to understand. [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Zone-VI-Workshop-Fred-Picker/dp/0817405747/ref=pd_sim_b_1"]Amazon.com: Zone VI Workshop (9780817405748): Fred Picker: Books[/ame]
I also really enjoyed Ansel Adams "The Negative." Some will say it is more dense than it needs to be, no pun intended. I found it very helpful.

the above are very good, here is another "Tshe Confused Photographer's GUIde to Photographic Exposure and the Simplified Zone System" by Bahman Farzad
Used copies on Amazon for $1.10. Can't go wrong with that. Thanks.
