Through the Eyes of Ansel Adams

“In my mind’s eye, I visualize how a particular… sight and feeling will appear on a print. If it excites me, there is a good chance it will make a good photograph. It is an intuitive sense, an ability that comes from a lot of practice.”

–Ansel Adams

If you ever took a high school photography course, your instructor probably geeked out over Ansel Adams, with good reason. Synonymous with gorgeous black and white photographs of American landscapes, particularly the National Parks, his work is instantly recognizable. Perhaps it is because he refused to use smaller cameras or because of his unique Zone System. Whatever the reason, the world viewed through his lens is a wonder to behold.
