Choose an image…. Describe it• who-ansel adams 1941, Ansel Adams to create a photo mural for the Department of the Interior Building in Ansel Adams Washington, DC. The theme was to be nature as exemplified and protected in the U.S. National Parks. The project was halted because of World War II and never resumed.• On this photograph there is one of ansels famous key pictures which is an enviroment with a lake , rocky mountain and fields.• U.s.a , Washington
Composition• If the photographer would of zoomed more in then the landscape within the picture wouldn’t have been as beautiful as it is , for instance the river would have been cut of and the surroundings so the main focus would have been on the mountain alone.
Techniques used• The difference within these two photo’s is that the bottom one of the two has a lot more detail to colour like everywhere were as the top one has a sepia effect to it and a lot more close up so you can notice the detail more.
Strengths & Weaknesses• Usually with photography I don’t like a lot of colour well too much colour because the picture looks over detailed , if photographers can make a simple image look so detailed and interesting I think there the best types.
