By Michael Langford

The past due Michael Langford used to be the most trendy and acomplished authors of images essays. His works are unmatched of their analitical intensity, specialize in the basic principals and mechanisms in images, but in addition of their critical educational method at the subject.
complex images including its significant other quantity uncomplicated images are in my view actually necessary resource of good written, instructive details, masking approximately each point of the photographic process.
these days the place there's stifling overabundance of shallow, uninspiring and downright lifeless "textbooks", that are not able to coach you whatever, complicated images and uncomplicated images stand as regular environment, different tutorials. Very hugely recomended.

Once that high-quality standard is established, you can maintain it through an exacting and practical method of quality assurance. Quality assurance (QA) in photography has one purpose—to ensure that photographic production is consistently of high quality, whether it be a negative, print, transparency, or other form. The quality of these products is determined by three factors, each having a number of variables. These factors are human, chemical, and mechanical. The human factors include the personnel involved in photography, photographic development and/or printing, as well as those photographers who work directly in the quality assurance section of an imaging facility.

These tests can be made by developing several equally exposed films to different gamma or contrast-index values. The negative with a gamma or CI value that prints best on your printing system is then used. When using variable contrast paper, you should aim for negatives that print well with a No. 2 filter. Time-Gamma and Time-Contrast Index Curves Time-gamma or time-contrast index curves are plotted to summarize the behavior of any film-developer combination. Time-gamma or time-contrast index curves are used to indicate the time of development required to reach a desired gamma or contrast index.

These charts are published by film manufacturers and can be seen throughout the Photo-Lab Index. Figure 2-11 is a typical time-gamma chart. To use a time-gamma or time-contrast index temperature chart, follow the line indicating the temperature at which you are processing until the desired gamma or contrast-index line is intersected. From this point, drop straight down to the time of development line. The intersection of the vertical line and the time of development line indicates the proper developing time at the recommended agitation.
