Forget your smartphones, imagine you and nature, nothing else.
Making the best compensation between whites and blacks, shadows, dark and highlights.
Trying to take the best shot possible with a very huge and heavy camera.
All you need and all you hope is just one single shot.
It would give a meaning to your day.
Then you move back home, you lock yourself inside your darkroom and using at the best all you know about the zone system…
That’s what Ansel Adams did for so many years. That’s what inspired me the most and still inspires me.
I learned the zone system by his books that I used to study when I started with photography.
Even today I believe there’s nothing around you can compare for learning light and dark compensation that I call equilibrium.
