This book is invaluable to anyone struggleing to make prints like the master printmakers. Picture by picture analysis of negatives, lighting, exposure and split filtering to make it all work. While I do not take the kind of pictures used as examples, there is something in each one that is applicable to a very broad range of photographs. Thanks Eddie!


Mr Ephraums books are a constant source of inspiration for me

The Zone system for B & W paper

'Gradient Light' is another excellent book produced by master printer Eddie Ephraums. He really takes the use of variable contrast black & white paper to a higher level with detailed examples of his work and information on the entire process from conceptualizing the shot and the print, to shooting, developing the negative, and printing and toning. This book presents a precise system for creating high quality prints in the darkroom. Mr. Ephraums has presented the serious photographer with a Zone system for VC paper. A definite addition for any serious printer. Even a beginner can distill good information and learn the importance of careful note taking and planning and execution of their photographic vision. I can't wait until Ephruams' next book.
