Amazing how black and white photography can enhance a subject. The guy was a master.
plus you can always enhance or darken a negative....
he also was lucky to have yosemite as his back yard
That's a big back yard LOL. I bet he did some serious hiking.
Plus sitting around for hours (or days) on end, waiting for the perfect light and weather.
Each year they publish an Ansel Adams wall calendar. It's the only thing my brother asks for Christmas.
I saw this shot in a magazine about Ansel's darkroom techniques, but it was processed directly from the negative......... it was quite an eye opener. He would have had a ball with Photoshop.
This is contact print, before he worked it in the darkroom.....

Aren't contact prints the same size as the negative? That's some big format film he was working with.
its amazing how small the print really is for that photo
i am not sure what a contract print is....
That's true, with 35 mm most of a role will be on an 8x10 print......... Adams used an 8 x 10 View Camera most of the time...... a huge negative and incredible sharpness is the result.
Check out this guy's setup............Beautiful work.
