Westons style included landscape,portrait,nude,still lifes,genre scenes and whimsical parodies photography.

Weston used necessitated very long exposures when using his view camera.

Weston's father bought him a camera on his 16th birthday and he used that camera to take pictures of landscapes and after he got married he used the camera to photograph his wife and children in then nude.

Weston's first camera in 1902 was a 5x7 camera. In 1911 he had 11x14. And after when he began taking portraits of his children Weston got 3 ¼ x 4 ¼ Graflex in 1912 in order to better capture their quickly changing expressions.In 1939 he listed the following items as his standard equipment:8 x 10, Century Universal, Triple convertible Turner Reich, 12", 21", 28"K2, G, A filters ,12 film holders.Paul Ries Tripod He continued to use this equipment throughout his life.

Edward Weston used soft light with his photography.

He was influenced by photographers such as Ansel Adams, Imogen Cunningham, and Willard van Dyke.

One of Weston's photographs was priced at 1.4 millions dollars in 2008

I like that Edward Weston used landscape photography because it's my favorite type of photography to look at and the most fun and interesting to take.
