Ansel Adams is a photographer who is spoken about a lot. To many, especially landscape photographers, he’s a huge inspiration. Every snippet of information we see about his photographs or the man himself offers valuable insight. We learn more about who he was, how he worked, and his thought process.
In this one hour and twenty two minute documentary, we learn more about Ansel and his work than in just about anything else I’ve seen. It’s an old documentary, but it’s recently become popular again online, and I thought I’d share it here with you.
There’s so much information in this video that it’s impossible to try and lay it out here in a post. So, I’m not even going to try. But suffice to say, you should watch it. It goes into a lot of detail about his life, his journey, philosophy on photography, and his thought processes while shooting.
