Landscape (Spain and Dolomite)
Landscapes generally focus on wide, vast depictions of nature and all of its elements, from formations to weather. In this genre of photography, you won’t find much of a human presence: nature itself is the subject. A focus on nature isn’t mandatory, however — you can capture a sweeping panorama of an entire city, town, or industrial area. ~ Cheri Lucas Rowlands, Photo 101
Landscape photography is the supreme test of the photographer – and often
the supreme disappointment.
~ Ansel Easton Adams (February 20, 1902 – April 22, 1984)
An American photographer and environmentalist
Notes: With Fred Archer, Adams developed the Zone System as a way to determine proper exposure and adjust the contrast of the final print. The resulting clarity and depth characterized his photographs. Adams primarily used large-format cameras because their high resolution helped ensure sharpness in his images.
