Ansel Adams Natural Landscapes
Challenge has finished
Ansel Easton Adams (February 20, 1902 – April 22, 1984) was an American photographer and environmentalist, best known for his black-and-white photographs, with great composition and care about the light and tones. With Fred Archer, Adams developed the Zone System as a way to determine proper exposure and adjust the contrast. The resulting clarity and depth characterized his photograph. Adams primarily used large-format cameras despite their size, weight, setup time, and film cost, because their high resolution helped ensure sharpness in his images. Adams also founded the Group f/64 along with,photographers like Willard Van Dyke and Edward Weston. Adams's photographs are a source of inspiration to many of us, and a pleasure to see. So, try to show (mimic) is style.

|Taken:||Saturday, 21st May, 2011|
|Focal length:||135 mm|
|Shutter speed:||1/200 sec|
|Notes:||Metering was done off the rock face and then the following taken into consideration to achieve the final exposure: 1. Exposure was adjusted to keep from blowing out detail in the sky or water. 2. The falls I specifically did not want to stop entirely, or smooth out so much they lost their raw power. Since I did not have B&W filters available at the time color channels were used in post processing to reproduce colored gels frequently used for B&W work.|
