What made him so famous?
Adams career breakthrough started when he first submitted his first portfolio. When different companies loved his work a big wave of commercial assignments came rolling in and that's how he began his journey. As the years went by he had expanded to bigger better things, started taking photos of mountains, factories, once in awhile he'd make a trip to the city as well. From that point on his main focus was on the environment, from mountains to the trees in the forest.
Appreciation and what I have learned:
What I appreciate most about Ansel Adams work is the fact that he puts his time into it and is passionate for his work. He seemed like he always would have a new idea or another way of capturing the photo.
What I have learned about photography from this project is that commercial photographers put all their time and energy into every project they have. They take their work very seriously and know what to look for while taking photographs. I also have learned that all commercial photographers are creative in there own way and they all have their own technique.
