Texture and Detail

1. In a fine print, each zone has a different amount of texture and detail. There are three types of zones:

a. Zones that have no texture and detail that are used to represent extremely dark or pure white objects in a photograph (Zones 0, I, and IX);

b. Zones that have a limited amount of texture and detail that are used to represent very dark or light objects that are slightly textured (Zones II and VIII); and c. Zones with full texture and detail that make up the greater part of most photographs (Zones III, IV, V, VI, and VII).

2. Zones help us to mentally picture the subject being photographed in terms of the final print that we hope to make. This is called previsualization. Remembering how zones look in terms of subject matter makes previsualization relatively easy.
