Texture and Detail

To relate zones more closely to the real world, I will define each zone in terms of the way it should look in a normal print. As much as possible, I will refer to familiar objects that typically appear in photographs as certain zones. These descriptions will help you visualize zones for later use. Of course, you will not always want a given object to appear as a given zone. For example, in one portrait you may want brown hair to be Zone III and in another Zone IV. Keep in mind that offset reproductions can only approximate the tonality of real photographic prints.
