The Zone System Rumble ended over 2 years ago

To close out our week long tribute to one of the greatest photographers the world has ever known, Ansel Adams, let's have a little monochrome rumble that celebrates one of his greatest contributions - the zone system!

Photo by ginomatic

Ansel Adams is undoubtedly one of the most famous and influential figures in the history of photography. He is best known for his black & white work and having a hand in developing (pun intended) the Zone System. It is much touted, but criticized much as well. Love it or hate it, the Zony system has become an integral part in both the history of photography, and in understanding the nuances of monochrome work. So in celebration of Ansel Adams week here at Lomography, let’s take a look at those black & white images that best exemplify the use of the Zone system! We want to see those middle grays and textures!

Details:

  • Prize(s): 5 Winners of 5 Piggies each.
  • Film/Camera Type: Any analogue black & white photo not digitally enhanced or manipulated.
  • Upload Limit: 3 Photos
  • Minimum Photo Dimensions: Submissions must be at least 768px in either width or height.
  • Meta data must be completed (camera, film, location & 3 tags)
