Eight Things We Can Learn From Ansel Adams

DIY Photography has a nice piece about eight things you can learn from Ansel Adams. Check it out. Here they are summarized…

  • “You Don’t Take A Photograph, You Make It”
  • Know Where To Stand
  • Photograph How It Feels (Not How It Looks)
  • Pre-Visualize Your Photos
  • Ignore Critics
  • On Technology And Photography
  • On Music And Photography
  • Make Photos Look Like Photos

…but you really need to read the article to get the most out of this list.

NOTE: An earlier blog entry discussed pictorialism, which is mentioned in the last point about making photos look like photos. Interesting counterpoints to consider.
