Ansel Adams is by far one of the most distinguished landscape photographers ever to have taken photographs of Yosimite National Park. His photographs of Yosemite National Park have not only been widely reproduced into calendars, posters, but they also continue to inspire new generations of landscape photographers to this day.
Apart from capturing landscapes, Ansel Adams is known for developing the Zone System along with Fred Archer. The Zone System is a way to determine proper exposure and adjust the contrast of the final print. The resulting images had better clarity and depth which are prevalent to Ansel Adams’ works.
In this post we are going to get ourselves inspired with photographs made by one of the most prolific landscape photographers to have ever walked in this earth.
For those who don’t know, Ansel Adams worked mostly with a large format camera for its sharpness and amazing resolution. Unknown to most people, Ansel Adams was a prolific musician. He began playing the piano at the age of twelve which helped him in his photography career later on.

His father, Charles H. Adams helped cultivate the young Ansel Adams into appreciating the beauty of nature. Charles bought Ansel a year’s pass to the Panama-Pacific Exposition. The young Ansel Adams not only experienced the event every single day but he also began to photograph it and later on assembled them in albums. After his year-long immersion he then first experienced the beauty of the Yosemite National Park. This first visit to Yosemite National Park sparked Ansel Adams’ interest and love for photography and cliche as it may seem, the rest was history.)
