Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ansel Adams recounts the circumstances surrounding the making of many of his most famous photographs and the methods he used in their realization. Each image is accompanied by a narrative that explores the technical and aesthetic problems presented by the subject, and includes reminiscences of the places and people involved and anecdotes on matters ranging from timing to the weather. Specific technical information about the camera and lens, filters, exposure times and development and printing of the image is given in an agreeable balance with more general information. Further technical considerations can be explored by using the references in each selection to the books in "The New Adams Photography Series".

Synopsis:
