Re: Re: Lesson 2 Assignment – Inspiration

Duncan Rawlinson

Thank you for sharing this with us.

Yes, Ansel Adams is an inspiration, not only for his breathtaking landscapes and portraits, but also for his microscopic attention to detail. I think that his technical understanding of photography is one of the most important lessons that should be taken from Ansel Adams.

He has an incredible amount of knowledge about the technical components of his craft. It’s this understanding that allows him to embed strong compositions and engaging stories into photographs that only stand out because of what they communicate but they also stand out based purely on their technical standards.

Obviously, this level of attention to detail is something that we hope to see develop in your photographs as you progress through the course.

We’re looking forward to seeing your next practical assignment!
