Ansel Easton Adams

Ansel Easton Adams

Ansel Easton Adams (February 20, 1902 – April 22, 1984)

was an American photographer and environmentalist.

Hisblack-and-white landscape photographs of the American

West, especially Yosemite National Park, have been widely

reproduced on calendars, posters, and books.

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 largeformatcameras

because their high resolution helped ensure

sharpness in his images.

Adams founded the photography group known as Group

f/64 along with fellow photographers Willard Van Dyke and

Edward Weston.

Adams was born in the Western Addition of San Francisco, California, to distinctly upper-class parents Charles

Hitchcock Adams and Olive Bray Adams. Adams became interested in piano at age 12. Music became the main

focus of his later youth. His father sent him to piano teacher Marie Butler, who focused on perfectionism and

accuracy. After four years of studying under her guidance, Adams moved on to other teachers, one being

composer Henry Cowell. For the next twelve years, the piano was Adams' primary occupation and, by 1920, his

intended profession. Although he ultimately gave up music for photography, the piano brought substance,

discipline and structure to his frustrating and erratic youth. Moreover, the careful training and exacting craft

required of a musician profoundly informed his visual artistry, as well as his influential writings and teachings on

photography.

In 1927, Adams produced his first portfolio, Parmelian Prints of the High Sierras, in his new style, which included

his famous image Monolith, the Face of Half Dome, taken with his Korona view camera using glass plates and a

dark red filter (to heighten the tonal contrasts). Between 1929 and 1942, Adams's work matured and he became

more established. In the course of his 60-year career, the 1930s were a particularly productive and experimental

time. Adams expanded his works, focusing on detailed close-ups as well as large forms from mountains to

factories. In 1930 Taos Pueblo, Adams's first book was published with text by writer Mary Hunter Austin.

Adams did not work exclusively in black and white. He also experimented with color. His subjects that he shot in

color ranged from portraits to landscape to architecture, a similar scope to that of his black and white work.

There are two main reasons, according to an expert source, why Adams preferred black and white. The first was

that he felt color could be distracting, and could therefore divert an artist‟s attention away from achieving his full

potential when taking a photograph. Adams actually claimed that he could get “a far greater sense of „color‟ through

a well-planned and executed black-and-white image than [he had] ever achieved with color photography”.

Location: Glacier Bay, Alaska


Glacier Bay, Alaska

Lofty mountain peaks, ice-sculptured fjords, an abundance of marine wildlife and, most of all, massive tidewater

glaciers, have made Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve one of Alaska's most spectacular settings and a muststop

for every cruise ship sailing north through Southeast Alaska. The 3.3 million acre park is indeed an icy

wilderness.

Today, glaciers still cover 27 percent of the Park. There are more than 50 named glaciers of which seven are active

tidewater glaciers that calve icebergs into the sea. Two of them, Johns Hopkins and Margerie Glaciers, are advancing.

Encircling the park to the west is the Fair-weather Range, the highest coastal mountains in the world at 15,000 feet.

In 1794 a survey crew described what is now called Glacier Bay as a five-mile indent in a glacier that stretched “as far

as the eye could distinguish.” In 1879 when scientist/naturalist John Muir visited the area, he found the ice had

retreated more than 30 miles, creating an actual bay. The glacier has continued to recede at a rapid rate.

Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve was named a national monument in 1925. In 1980, the area became a

national park and preserve, and 2.7 million acres received wilderness designation. In 1986, the park became a

biosphere reserve, and the area was named a world heritage site in 1992.

More than 90 percent of the park's visitors arrive on cruise ships, which swing through the vast bay but never stop.

The rest pass through either the village of Gustavus or the park headquarters of Bartlett Cove for a variety of

adventures. Most of the activities in the park are water-focused with the most popular being boat tours, kayaking,

river rafting, fishing, glacier viewing and whale watching. The park's 10 miles of maintained trails is limited to

Bartlett Cove but Glacier Bay offers an excellent opportunity for people who have experience on the water but not

necessarily as kayakers. Kayakers are often dropped off in the well-protected arms and inlets deep in the bay where

they paddle past glaciers and camp along the shoreline on their own or as part of a guided kayaking tour.

As marine waters make up nearly one-fifth of the park, Glacier Bay is rich with marine life, including the endangered

humpback whale, orcas, threatened stellar sea lions, harbor seals, sea otters and porpoises. In addition to marine

mammals, Glacier Bay is home to a large bear population, both brown and black, as well as the blue glacier bear, a

rare color phase of the black. Moose, wolves, Sitka black tail deer, mountain goats and bald eagle also thrive in the

park.

The bay has a cool wet, coastal temperate rainforest climate. Three climatic zones have been discerned in the Glacier

Bay; the outer coast along the Gulf of Alaska, which records mild temperatures and higher precipitation. However, it

experiences less snowfall, the upper Glacier Bay where it is much colder and heavy snowfall occurs, and the lower

Glacier Bay, which experiences heavy rainfall throughout the year.

The summer temperatures vary between 50 °F (10 °C)) and 60 °F (16 °C), while the winter temperatures lie in the

range of 20 to 30 °F (−7 to −1 °C), with minimum going up to −10 °F (−23 °C).

Mistaya Canyon, Canada

Location: Glacier Bay, Alaska

Mistaya Canyon! If you love the outdoors, seek out adventure, or just appreciate incredible natural beauty,

this dream is for you. It’s no secret that Banff is one of the most breathtaking national parks in North

America. Its 2,564 square miles are full of mountains, hot springs, forests, rivers, glaciers, and

stunningly blue lakes.

Mistaya Canyon is a canyon in the western part of the Alberta province of Canada. It is formed by

the Mistaya River. Tourists who are visiting Banff National Park often visit it because of its distinctive curvy

canyon walls and because it is easy to access, being just offs the Ice fields Parkway. The 0.5 km trail to the

canyon is located at a large parking area on the west side of the Parkway, part way up the long hill south of

the North Saskatchewan River. There are actually two such parking areas on the hill; the Mistaya one is

clearly marked by signs on the highway and at the beginning of the trail. The trail is an easy walk in summer

but too steep for wheelchairs. The canyon is deep and there are no railings. The trail is icy in early spring.

Hikers will find that the Howse Pass Trail continues past the canyon.

Tower Bridge, London

Instagram ID: @luna_the_french_diva

Location: Tower Bridge, London

Tower Bridge is a combined bascule and suspension bridge in London. The bridge crosses the River Thames close to

the Tower of London and has become an iconic symbol of London. Tower Bridge is one of five London bridges now

owned and maintained by the Bridge House Estates, a charitable trust overseen by the City of London Corporation. It is

the only one of the Trust's bridges not to connect the City of London directly to the Southwark bank, the northern

landfall being in Tower Hamlets.

The bridge consists of two bridge towers tied together at the upper level by two horizontal walkways, designed to

withstand the horizontal tension forces exerted by the suspended sections of the bridge on the landward sides of the

towers. The vertical components of the forces in the suspended sections and the vertical reactions of the two walkways

are carried by the two robust towers. The bascule pivots and operating machinery are housed in the base of each tower.

The bridge's present colour scheme dates from 1977, when it was painted red, white and blue for Queen Elizabeth

II's Silver Jubilee. Originally it was painted a mid greenish-blue colour

The bridge deck is freely accessible to both vehicles and pedestrians, whilst the bridge's twin towers, high-level

walkways and Victorian engine rooms form part of the Tower Bridge Exhibition, for which an admission charge is

made.

Verona, Italy

Instagram ID: @my_italy

Location: Verona, Italy

Verona, in the Veneto region of north-east Italy, is one of Italy's loveliest towns, famous for its summer opera season.

This has been a thriving and successful town for most of its history, and today smart shops and cafes fill the attractive

medieval lanes of the historic centre. Verona is a popular day-trip from Lake Garda and an appealing destination for

weekend breaks or longer stays. There's a lot to see here, from Roman ruins to the so-called 'Juliet's balcony', and the

town is also well-connected for exploring the surrounding area, including destinations like Lake Garda, Vicenza, &

Venice.

Verona was an important Roman town and is rich in archaeological sites, the grandest of which is the Roman Arena,

where operas are now performed in the summer. Three of Shakespeare's plays are set in Verona: Romeo and

Juliet, The Two Gentlemen of Verona, and The Taming of the Shrew. The city has been awarded World Heritage

Site status by UNESCO because of its urban structure and architecture.

Verona has a humid subtropical climate characteristic of Northern Italy's inland plains, with hot summers and cold,

humid winters, even though Lake Garda's almost-Mediterranean climate has a partial influence on the city. The relative

humidity is high throughout the year, especially in winter when it causes fog, mainly from dusk until late morning,

although the phenomenon has become increasingly less frequent in recent years.

CREATIVE PHOTOGRAPHY

By Sally Thomas

Instagram ID - @salmorrison

Sally Thomas is our creative specialist at @iglobalphotographers. Each edition, she will be sharing her tips for

adding creativity to photographs.

I really enjoy choosing creative features for @iglobalphotographers and it isn't an easy task as there are so many

great ones in the gallery! I think creativity is a really broad genre - it can mean an interesting subject, a great

perspective, photography technique (such as light trails or depth of field) or a brilliant edit afterwards.

Some people have a natural flair for creative photography but I genuinely believe it's a skill you can learn.

Here are three very simple steps to get started.

1. Move around and capture your subject from different positions - I always get strange looks as I sometimes lie on

the ground to take photos!

2. Try using the 'rule of thirds' I'll expand on this next time but rather than have your subject right in the centre,

have it on the left or right.

3. Editing - you don't need fancy software; try using the Instagram editing tools.

Filters are an instant way to add a dramatic effect:

or you can fine-tune with highlights:

warmth:

and/or colour. Play around with both shadow and highlight colours - you can get some great subtle or dramatic

effects.

Tilt shift always adds a creative touch and is also good for blurring out any grainy effects you sometimes get with

filters.

These are just simple tips to get you started - hope you find them useful!

One more thing to mention - take photographs YOU like not that you think someone else will like! You will develop

your own style and a great gallery that is really unique and interesting.

Until next time!

Henri Cartier-Bresson

Henri Cartier-Bresson; August 22, 1908 – August 3, 2004) was

a French photographer considered the master of candid

photography, and an early user of 35 mm film. He helped

develop street photography, and approvingly cited a notion of

the inevitability of a decisive moment, a term adopted as the

title for his first major book. His work has influenced many

photographers. Henri Cartier-Bresson was born in Chanteloupen-Brie,

Seine-et-Marne, France, the oldest of five children. His

father was a wealthy textile manufacturer, whose Cartier-

Bresson thread was a staple of French sewing kits. His mother's

family was cotton merchants and landowners from Normandy,

where Henri spent part of his childhood. The Cartier-Bresson

family lived in a bourgeois neighborhood in Paris, Rue de

Lisbonne, near Place de l'Europe and Parc Monceau. His

parents supported him financially so Henri could pursue

photography more freely than his contemporaries. Henri also

sketched.

Cartier-Bresson nearly always used a Leica 35 mm rangefinder camera fitted with a normal 50 mm lens, or

occasionally a wide-angle lens for landscapes. He often wrapped black tape around the camera's chrome body to

make it less conspicuous. With fast black and white film and sharp lenses, he was able to photograph events

unnoticed. No longer bound by a 4×5 press camera or an medium format twin-lens reflex camera, miniatureformat

cameras gave Cartier-Bresson what he called "the velvet hand...the hawk's eye."

He never photographed with flash, a practice he saw as "impolite...like coming to a concert with a pistol in your

hand."

He believed in composing his photographs in the viewfinder, not in the darkroom. He showcased this belief by

having nearly all his photographs printed only at full-frame and completely free of any cropping or other darkroom

manipulation. He insisted that his prints were not cropped as they include the first few millimeters of the

unexposed negative around the image area, resulting in a black frame around the developed picture.

Cartier-Bresson worked exclusively in black and white, other than a few unsuccessful attempts in color. He disliked

developing or making his own prints and showed a considerable lack of interest in the process of photography in

general, likening photography with the small camera to an "instant drawing”. Technical aspects of photography

were valid for him only where they allowed him to express what he saw:

Constant new discoveries in chemistry and optics are widening considerably our field of action. It is up to us to

apply them to our technique, to improve ourselves, but there is a whole group of fetishes which have developed on

the subject of technique. Technique is important only insofar as you must master it in order to communicate what

you see... The camera for us is a tool, not a pretty mechanical toy. In the precise functioning of the mechanical

object perhaps there is an unconscious compensation for the anxieties and uncertainties of daily endeavor. In any

case, people think far too much about techniques and not enough about seeing.

About Location: PANGONG LAKE, LEH, INDIA

The place is located in Ladakh. Situated at a height of 4,250 meters, far away in barren land in Ladakh, Pangong Tso

is one of the largest brackish lakes in Asia. The crystal clear blue lake sprawls over an area of 100 kilometers across

the borders of two countries in India and China. It is one of the charismatic lakes situated on the Changtang plateau in

eastern Ladakh region.

Pangong Lake is also known by the name of Hollow Lake and appears as a clear symbol of nature craftsmanship. The

brackish water plays with sunlight to produce different effects of light. One-third part of the lake lies in India while

the remaining two-third lies in Tibet, a region controlled by China. A large chunk of streams that fill the lake are

located on the Tibetan part. The lake is located just 5 hours drive from Leh in the Ladakh region of Jammu &

Kashmir.

The first glimpse of the tranquil, azure blue waters and shaky lakeshore remains etched in the memory of tourists.

This area falls under army control and requires pass from deputy commissioner of Leh. During the winter season, the

lake and its surroundings are engulfed by freezing temperature. The surface of the lake becomes so solid that one can’t

walk over it. On the surface of frozen lake a gala festival of ice skating is organized. It calls on large number of skiers

and ice skaters from several parts of the world. During this festival, tourists also get to see the local culture of the

native people.

The Greatest Tourist Destination, Juneau, Alaska. This is the view I get to see many days

waking up at 7:00 AM for early morning calculus and school afterwards. This frigid beauty is

why I love it here so much.

By – Dante Bonacco

About Location: JUNEAU, ALASKA

Before Juneau was Juneau, it was Rockwell. Before that, it was Harrisburg. And even before

that, it was a settlement for several tribes of native Indians.

Gold mining met its demise during wartime, when it was deemed a non-essential activity, but

Juneau's tourism industry was fast becoming a growing portion of its livelihood. In everincreasing

numbers since the early 1900s, Juneau's attractions and adventures have attracted

travelers and cruise ship passengers, particularly in the summer months.

Today, Juneau is a thriving city offering a great blend of city amenities and small-town

hospitality, all in the heart of Alaska's majestic mountains, rivers, glaciers, and forests.

Nearly 31,000 people call Juneau home - many of them working in government, tourism,

mining, and fishing, and all of them instilled with a deep love for this place. Such a mix of

personalities makes Juneau unique.

Photo Description:

Last April, Laetitia and I embarqued on a very ambitious road trip from Cape Town

through to Namibia and Botswana and then back to Cape Town. A 9000 km journey in

our Polo spread over a little less than a month.

One of the very expected stops was the orange desert of Sossusvlei in the Namibian desert.

On the first evening there, we were suggested the dune 45 to watch the sunset. We drove

towards the dune a good hour before the sunset. The sky was grey and rain about to fall.

We started climbing the dune, which didnt seem to be very high. However, everytime we

seemed to reach the top, it turned out we needed to do some more walking. The sun was

setting quickly so we gave up and craked open our beers and enjoyed the view from where

we were. And suddendly, this rainbow appeared, making up for this all sunset mishap. It

turned out to be a great time of the trip and we even made it back to the car before the

rain started pouring.

New York City is a phenomenal place where people never stop moving towards their

destination. The fast moving clouds in this picture really complements the speed of NYC. This

is a photograph of the view above Madison Square Park, a park that is located next to the

famous Flatiron Building. Like most New Yorkers, I rarely take time to appreciate the

beautiful scenery of the city. This photograph was primarily taken for my digital

photography class at Baruch College. The theme of this project is reproduction. We had to take

the word reproduction and decide its definition in terms of photography. The same subject or

scenery is reproduced thousands of times through photographs and snapshots. I decided that

reproduction means the act of reproducing a subject in a way where it is most appealing to

yourself.

Dorothea Lange

98

Dorothea Lange (May 26, 1895 – October 11, 1965) was an

influential American documentary photographer and

photojournalist, best known for her Depression-era work

for the Farm Security Administration (FSA). Lange's

photographs humanized the consequences of the Great

Depression and influenced the development

of documentary photography.

Born of second generation German immigrants on May

26, 1895, at 1041 Bloomfield Street, Hoboken, New Jersey,

Dorothea Lange was named Dorothea Margaretta

Nutzhorn at birth. She dropped her middle name and

assumed her mother's maiden name after her father

abandoned the family when she was 12 years old, one of

two traumatic incidents early in her life. The other was her

contraction of polio at age seven which left her with a

weakened right leg and a permanent limp.

Lange graduated from the Wadleigh High School for Girls and was educated in photography at Columbia

University inNew York City, in a class taught by Clarence H. White. She was informally apprenticed to several New

York photography studios, including that of the famed Arnold Genthe. In 1918, she left New York with a female

friend to travel the world, but was forced to end the trip in San Francisco due to a robbery and settled there,

working as a photo finisher. By the following year she had opened a successful portrait studio. She lived across the

bay in Berkeley for the rest of her life.

In 1920, she married the noted western painter Maynard Dixon, with whom she had two sons, Daniel, born in

1925, and John, born in 1930.

With the onset of the Great Depression, Lange turned her camera lens from the studio to the street. Her studies of

unemployed and homeless people, starting with “White Angel Breadline” which depicted a lone man turned away

from the crowd in front of a soup kitchen run by a widow known as the White Angel, captured the attention of local

photographers and led to her employment with the federal Resettlement Administration (RA), later called

the Farm Security Administration(FSA).

In December 1935, she divorced Dixon and married economist Paul Schuster Taylor, Professor of Economics at

theUniversity of California, Berkeley. Together they documented rural poverty and the exploitation

of sharecroppers and migrant laborers for the next five years – Taylor interviewing and gathering economic data,

Lange taking photos.

In the last two decades of her life, Lange's health was poor. She suffered from gastric problems, including

bleeding ulcers, as well as post-polio syndrome – although this renewal of the pain and weakness of polio was not

yet recognized by most physicians.

Lange died of esophageal cancer on October 11, 1965, in San Francisco, California, at age 70.

Eugène Atget

Eugène Atget ( 12 February 1857 – 4 August 1927) was a

French flâneur and a pioneer of documentary

photography, noted for his determination to document all

of the architecture and street scenes of Paris before their

disappearance to modernization. Most of his photographs

were first published by Berenice Abbott after his death. An

inspiration for the surrealists and other artists, his genius

was only recognized by a handful of young artists in the

last two years of his life, and he did not live to see the wide

acclaim his work would eventually receive.

Atget created a tremendous photographic record of the

look and feel of nineteenth-century Paris just as it was

being dramatically transformed by modernization, and its

buildings were being systematically demolished.

Jean-Eugène-Auguste Atget was born 12 February 1857 in Libourne. His father, carriage builder Jean-Eugène

Atget, died in 1862, and his mother, Clara-Adeline Atget née Hourlier died shortly after. He was brought up by his

maternal grandparents in Bordeaux and after finishing secondary education joined the merchant navy.

Atget moved to Paris in 1878. He failed the entrance exam for acting class but was admitted when he had a second

try. Because he was drafted for military service he could attend class only part-time, and he was expelled from

drama school.

Still living in Paris, he became an actor with a travelling group, performing in the Paris suburbs and the provinces.

He met actress Valentine Delafosse Compagnon, who became his companion until her death. He gave up acting

because of an infection of his vocal cords in 1887, moved to the provinces and took up painting without success. His

first photographs, of Amiens and Beauvais, date from 1888.

In 1890, Atget moved back to Paris and became a professional photographer, supplying documents for artists:

studies for painters, architects, and stage designers.

Starting in 1898, institutions such as the Musée Carnavalet and the Bibliothèque historique de la ville de

Paris bought his photographs. The latter commissioned him ca. 1906 to systematically photograph old buildings in

Paris. In 1899 he moved to Montparnasse.

During World War I Eugène Atget temporarily stored his archives in his basement for safekeeping and almost

completely gave up photography. Valentine's son Léon was killed at the front.

In 1920–21, he sold thousands of his negatives to institutions. Financially independent, he took up photographing

the parks of Versailles, Saint-Cloud and Sceaux and produced a series of photographs of prostitutes.

“For me, the camera is a sketch book, an instrument of intuition and

spontaneity.”

― Henri Cartier-Bresson

“A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you, the less you

know.”

― Diane Arbus

“The whole point of taking pictures is so that you don’t have to explain

things with words.”

― Elliott Erwitt

“I wish that all of nature's magnificence, the emotion of the land, the living

energy of place could be photographed”

― Annie Leibovitz
