Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Thanks..
for many of your elucidations here and past, esp. with such added al punte images..

(Wish you could have been a fly-on-wall re that Ansel Adams photo shoot; luck of the draw that I vas dere, Charlie.)
Seeing the steps in his/their set-up, thence seeing his work after lugging that massive view-camera up odd stairs for a perspective on "the Machine"--
quite different preliminaries -vs- what had been a portrait sitting, but in odd surroundings--earned moi a better comprehension of

just Why.. moi lacked the er, "perception chops" to be a real Photographer (even if I might have had the "10%" grokked to a sufficiency, Nikon F2-wise)
+ the small-angle photometric dances of his Method. A cliche now, but still Truthiness that: Seeing a situation/in the instant needs quite more than "viewing".

{{sigh}} Mastery?! ..moi might have a Minory in this art, then only occasionally.

PS: noted on a "NK"/Japan news show: that Film Cameras (like vinyl "records" ... Heh) seem to be blossoming--at High prices--in the Land of the Rising Sun.
Guess my pristine F2 would have financed moi Seeing that rising sun in situ, had I the foresight to keep also the bitchin ƒ2 105mm portrait lens and other paraphernalia

..or my Black Shadow! in a Nitrogen-filled big sack:-/

New You do know tha Ansel Adams used dodging and burning?
So, it wasn't the camera and the taking of the picture, it was the film print process afterwards to get the effect he wanted.

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."

-- Isaac Asimov
New Knew dat, but tmi is upon us all :-)
..and I recall some video of him doing such; the obvious thing (which, inferentially he knew and acted upon) was the er, dV/dt effects of
How (along with the how-Long?) he had: to pick the right trajectory to insert, remove that sucker!

Talk aboucher muscle memory, eh?
New He had to
His cameras and film were basically shit, so a lot of effort had to be expended in the darkroom.

"Examples" is an illuminating read.
