Yes. See Group f/64.


It is imrotant to note that f64 was about straight photography which is

'to depict a scene or subject in sharp focus and detail'

or as Adams himself said

'defined as possessing no qualities of technique, composition or idea, derivative of any other art form'

No reference to "recording reality".
