Ansel Adams' Legacy & Your Digital Camera

Ansel Adams

Ansel Adams is known for his artistry in what has become known as Landscape Photography. He also contributed to advancing the technical aspects of bringing this artistry to light. In this class, you will learn some of Ansel’s important innovations to photography and how they relate to your modern digital camera. This class is designed to instill more confidence in digital image capture, including understanding the histogram and fixing exposure problems. The foundations of the camera are also discussed: Aperture, shutter speed, and ISO; their light gathering and/or creative values. Our goal is to improve your technical camera proficiency while learning how important historical elements of Ansel’s photographic career are still relevant in modern digital photography.
