Ansel Adams


Artsy on Ansel Adams

Ansel Adams is widely regarded as one of the most famous photographers of all time, particularly in reference to his striking images of the American wilderness. Adams placed great value upon technical mastery of his craft, carefully evaluating gradations of light in the image, manipulating degree of exposure, and constantly experimenting with new techniques. Along with contemporaries Imogen Cunningham and Edward Weston, Adams founded the group f/64, devoted to what they termed “straight photography,” as opposed to staged or embellished images. Adams was also pivotal in the establishment of the Department of Photography at the Museum of Modern Art.

I took my grandson, Brett Bush,on a photo ramble last Saturday. We visited Demi-Jon Island, Bastrop Marina, Hoskin's Mound, and the 2004 Chcolate Bayou Bridge. Brett took some outstanding photos on his own. A budding young photographer, he is able to visualize, compose, and capture images. All these were taken by Brett.

With the recent time change, my opportunities for Sunrises and Sunset has diminished greatly. Tuesday morning as I drove home, I was pleased to have a chance to shoot the sunrise in Pasadena, Texas. Had to shoot over the freeway, but results were good.
