Ansel Adams

Ansel Adams is one of my all time favourite photographic heroes. He was truly a master of light and (although completely the opposite to how I enjoy taking photographs) his incredibly detailed, scientific approach to the craft was nothing short of genius.

I often spend hours studying his photographs and love to read about how he achieved his awe inspiring photos.

I can’t tell you how excited I am to have found an interactive presentation of a selection of his Yosemite photographs with narration supplied by his former assistant Andrea Stillman. Itâ??s enlightening, very entertaining and if youâ??re even the slightest bit interested in Anselâ??s work you should head on over and take a look:

  1. Ansel Adams was a huge inspiration to me when I first became obsessed with black and white photography. I even developed (no pun intended) my own darkroom system based on his zone system.

    People often seem to underrate his ability and the importance of the part he played in photography history. In my opinion, if you don’t get the significance of Ansel Adams, you haven’t looked properly at his legacy.

  2. Thanx for the tip! I am a great fan of Ansel Adams and welcome every new piece of good information on him and his work.
    And, yes, IMHO he did a lot to get photography accepted as a means of artistic expression in its own right.
