12495_Edward_Westonf9ab4fa3d9369dc944d8540f6ccc4bf542596f0f73cc9adce87ced94b283bbc96128944512_9a59f3dafb_b

These four photos are from two of Ansel Adams’ contemporaries: Edward Weston, and Mario Giacomelli, the first two being Edward’s, and the second two being Mario’s. They both shot landscapes, as well as other subjects, but mostly landscapes. They’re both very similar, however, they each have their own touch of uniqueness to them. Edward’s lighting was less intense as Adams’, and focused less on the contrast of lighting used in his photographs. Mario, on the other hand, would crank the contrast up to 11, creating landscapes that had a quality of looking like ink drawings rather than photos. They both seemed to plan out their photographs ahead of taking the actual photo, and did a good job emulating Adams’ style, without directly copying him.
