An expressive, tonally rich, silver image represents the ultimate blend of vision, passion and craft. No other photographer achieved this delicate balance more consistently or more successfully than Ansel Adams.

Now you can connect Ansel’s approach and mastery with your own photography in this five-day inspirational workshop designed for film-based photographers wanting to hone their vision and advance their technique in the style of Ansel Adams.

Under the patient and expert guidance of Alan Ross, Ansel’s last field assistant and a master in traditional film photography himself, you will explore the photographic concepts and techniques essential to the creation of a meaningful silver image that represents your vision.

Among the topics you will cover:
Equipment choice and its impact on your final image, isolating and evaluating the elements of a scene, translating the literal to the expressive, choosing a lens and using it well, using the Zone System to nail exposure,managing depth-of-field and printing and presentation--bringing your vision to life on paper.
