Learning from the genius creativity of Ansel Adams

IMG_1437 IMG_1443

Never will I complain about exploring outdoors to find beauty. When my homework involves illustrating Gods masterpiece in nature, into an photograph, there is really no room to complain.

I enjoyed learning about Ansel Adams in my research. The obvious is that he created breathtaking images of our nations magnificent landscapes. The more heart- warming was how passionate he was about preserving our environment. He used his art to convey a very important message. God gave us all of this beauty, how can we possibly sit back and watch it be destroyed? He compared a photo to a blink of God. Sometimes I feel God places us somewhere because there is something He wants us to see. It seems that Ansel and I shared that view.

I hope that my passion for the arts can lead to benefit to the world someday. Through our artistic talents, we can heal ourselves, heal each other, and heal the world.

Peace, Love, and Art


My photos in the style of Imogen Cunningham

In this photo I was trying to express Imogen's high contract of her black and white technique.

In this photo I just wanted to capture the high contrast of the Black and White.

In this photo i attempted to imitate Imogen's photo of unmade bed. It is an extremely complicated photo to copy in order to convey the story that she did. I also tired to incorporate her Triangle technique with the hair pins on the bed. They each are making a 45 degree angle. Imogen used this technique a lot in her portraits and the way she had her subjects pose.

I wanted to capture the beauty of this particular flower. I made the fore ground more clear than the back ground which is also a technique that Imogen expressed.

I went to Delta Ponds to try to find some wildlife before it got dark. These photos were my version of the kind of style my photographer does.  I will explain more during my presentation tomorrow!
