//Ansel Easton Adams//Moonshine

one of the greatest American photographers/ environmentalists of all time was known for his photographs of the American west. With Fred Archer, Adams developed the zone system as a way to determine proper exposure and adjust the contrast of the final print – pioneering high resolutions for future photographers to come. His lasting legacy includes helping to elevate photography to an art comparable with painting and music, and equally capable of expressing emotion and beauty. As he reminded his students, “It is easy to take a photograph, but it is harder to make a masterpiece in photography than in any other art medium”

For Adams the natural landscape is not a fixed and solid sculpture but an insubstantial image, as transient as the light that continually redefines it. This sensibility to the specificity of light was the motive that forced Adams to develop his legendary photographic technique.”

So with Ansel in mind I decided to make my own set of landscape photos- which were all taken in Bellingham, Washington with my family at our new lake house!!
