A Tour Of Ansel Adam’s Darkroom
One of our readers just emailed us this great video of landscape photographer Ansel Adam’s darkroom. Michael Adams, Ansel’s son, gives us a full tour of Ansel’s home studio and shows some of his prints as well as much of his equipment. I currently have Adam’s Moonrise, Hernandez hanging in my kitchen and it’s really fun to see what the untouched negative looked like before all the dodging and burning. What’s always amazing to me is that these prints were all done before the days of the computer, and every area that was altered had to be done by hand and with extreme precision. If you don’t already own some of Adam’s work, head over to the Ansel Adam’s store and pick up a book or print.
