January 2020 – Photo Project – Ansel Adams

This month’s photographer inspiration: Ansel Adams

Inspired by Ansel Adams photograph “Boards & Thistles”, I wanted to photograph an image with similar composition, lighting and style.

Here is my photograph of a shed, it’s called Titipu. I love the rustic boards and conifer branches. It is inspired by my research into Ansel Adam’s work. I was particularly interested in his early work, where he photographed everyday objects. The other 6 images were taken on my mobile phone, all inspired by Ansel Adam’s early work.

Over on my Instagram account, I set myself 3 challenges.

  1. Choose a photographer of the month and explore their work in my daily posts
  2. Post 1 photography a month, inspired by the photographer of the month
  3. Post one project each quarter
