Ansel Adams

You are going to study the work of Ansel Adams, a landscape photographer. Study the way he filled his picture frame, the contrast, texture, and subject placement in his work. Why did he do that?

Homework:1. Take your entire roll of film, which will be around 12 frames. Remember to bracket (adjust aperture/shutter by one stop up & one stop down). You should have 3-4 different scenes. Be ready to develop your film on the Monday after Thanksgiving. Do not forget your rules of composition when taking these photographs, be prepared to defend your compositions.2. Create a page in your workbook about the life of Ansel Adams. What did he do that was significant? (do not worry about things like exact dates, we are looking for the "essence" of the person).
