Review: Ansel Adams in Color by Ansel Adams


Toward the end of his life Ansel Adams wrote, "People are skeptical about my thoughts on color. I do not blame them, as I have protested it and have not shown color pictures. I feel the urge now and only wish I was sixty years younger!"

I love photography! When I was in high school, I actually thought that I might like to work as a photographer for a living. Nature is so gorgeous and when someone is able to capture a shot that invokes deep feelings, that's rare and beautiful talent. Ansel Adams is one of my favorite photographers. I'm addicted to his black and white prints and I never really thought about what his work would look like in color. I was very pleased when I flipped through this book. Ansel is a true artist.

I love Ansel Adams' B/W photography, I am even looking at a print of his I have hanging in my home right now! :-) I never knew he took color photos. I have to look into this book. He was actually my inspiration to start taking my photography seriously.
Thanks for the review of his book!
