Of course, the opposite can be true. If a slow shutter speed is needed to blur motion or a narrow depth of field is desired to hide background detail, then lower intensity light can be advantageous. Now what happens if we break the link between the metered aperture and shutter speed? Depending on which way we go, either reducing the amount of light entering the camera or increasing it, we darken or lighten the image. So why would we want to do this? Doesn’t it just result in under- or overexposed images?
When artists paint, they start with a blank canvas. The painting evolves as the artist adds paint to the canvas, creating lines, shapes, patterns, colors and texture. If there is something in the scene being painted which is unsightly or unwanted, the artist simple omits it from the painting. Let’s imagine we’re painting a landscape and running through that landscape is a line of electricity pylons. It simply doesn’t matter, we can just leave them out. The artist has this flexibility and can change the scene, combine elements of different scenes, add clouds to a cloudless sky, paint a sunset in the middle of the day, etc.
Once the subject’s general tone is assessed, it is simply a case of deciding into which of the seven zones (boxes) it falls. For example, if the tone were darker than medium tone and closer to black it would fall into the box marked zone 3. If it’s darker than medium tone but closer to medium than it is to black, then it must be dark gray. Remember, this is a skill and, like any skill, gets easier with practice. Visualizing the Scene Once you have the idea of the Zone System and equating scene tones into zonal values, it is possible to visualize how you want an image to appear in print and set an appropriate camera exposure.
