Three of Ansel Adam’s photographs No. 1

clip_image001

        The impact in this photo is due to Adams’ mastery of presentation.  Here a forest becomes stage for a dazzling interplay of geometric shapes.  As defined in the Photo Idea Index geometric shapes are “self contained designs within the larger composition of a photograph” (100).  In the photo, it is the sheer number of the geometric shapes created by the criss-cross of the various showcovered branches that awe the eye and give a complexity to the photo not often seen wheen photographing a bunch of trees.  As always, Adams’ focus on clarity allows the viewer to see each branch in almost perfect detail.
