In this volume, No. 8 in The Studio Publications "How To Do It Series", Ansel Adams educates photographers how to not just take a photograph, but to take a good one. He identifies the necessary equipment, the technique of each operation from exposure of the negative to completion of the print, and he explains the important part played by the eye of the photographer in selecting his point of view.
