This week I want to share five photos I did that were inspired by Ansel Adams. I took these pictures for a photography class I was in and my natural love of black and white photographs made me choose Ansel Adams for inspiration. All the pictures are from Pascacpo State Park, which is not to far from AACC, it is in Ellicott City if any of you want to go. I tried to capture the way Ansel Adams was able to make the locations he captured more beautiful in film then in real life. As I did not have a darkroom available I did my work with a digital slr and Photoshop. I shoot all my photographs in RAW just incase I need to fix something later on, it is just easier that way. Photoshop has a great function to turn photos into black and white then play around with the color groups making some darker and some lighter, whatever makes the photograph look its best. For a couple of the photos I added clouds in the background and it made all the difference; adding more beauty to the pictures.
