Billy the Bus Ansel Adams and Photoshop? (32) RE: Ansel Adams and Photoshop? 14 Oct 04

Ummm... Bob's said it all... almost...

I guess Ansel would have used Photoshop = after all, some of his best sna[shots were taken on Polaroid pos/neg, which was hi-tech. BUT could he cope with 'mousing about'?

I see Ansel as a symphony orchestra conductor - the "dodging and burning" came from his hands weaving and waving in the enlarger light. Wonderful -
Here's to a bloke who took some fine snaps ... and may or may not have used digital cameras and Photoshop if they were availble.

Let;s just say he had a fine mind, eye, and hands - and I'll betcha voice. Ansel just had to be a Folkie...

Thanks Art - I'm off to find the karge format enlarger I'm sure AA used.

Cheers - Sam
