All this information and observation plays an important part so that the photographer can make a sensitive image. I always read a great deal about the person I'm going to photograph. I imbue myself with their contribution to the world” (Bishop, Karsh, “Paris Voice”). Everyone was impressed with his amazing choice in lighting. “Karsh would set up one or two lamps behind the subject to build up rim lighting, though in his case he brought the lamps further round to the sides than most people did”, (said by a history photo observer; Yousuf Karsh, Photo.net).
ANSEL ADAMS There are many people that made major contributions to photography such as Thomas Moran and Albert Bierstadt. One other person who made contributions in regards to photography is Ansel Adams. Ansel Adams, like Thomas Moran and Albert Bierstadt, was a landscape photographer. Adams’ career was based on his elegant, flawless and magnificent photographs of beautiful natural landscapes. Ansel Adams’ major contribution towards photography was when Ansel succeeded in bringing public recognition to the art of photography.
His photographs of the landscape overwhelm the viewer with beauty and awe. They show that true power is natural. The exhibition, Natural Power, is to not only show the beauty of the landscape, but also its untamable nature; its power. Even though it is an exhibit about nature, it can also be looked at as a tribute to Ansel Adams, for without his conservation efforts, some of this beauty might have been overtaken by human expansion. Though he may not be alive, his vision and love lives on through his photography for us to appreciate, learn from, and enjoy.
I think the author wanted to show recognition of Fenton’s photograph’s and wanted to make everyone realise how wonderful these pictures were. I think that because he was so interested in this particular subject made him want to release a book about it. The nature of source 5, unlike source 4, agrees with Fenton and Russell presenting a realistic portrayal of the Crimean War because it’s written in first hand experience whereas source 4 is written over 160 years later

Jacob Garcia November 28, 2011 MTA 264 writing assignment Minor White Minor White is a photographer that has influenced my work a great deal. His use of line, shape, light is something that I am interested in. The way he uses these different aspects of his subject has made me look at photography in a different light as well as my own use of these techniques in my own work. Even though I recognize I am just starting out and need more experience in several areas, I especially would like more knowledge with the zone system. Throughout this paper I will examine Minor White and his influence on the field of photography as I find White especially interesting.
Darryl Smith Prof. Malachuk English 532 21 Oct. 2011 Thoreau's Ideologies of the Natural and Albert Bierstadt's The Rocky Mountains, Lander's Peak The Rocky Mountains, Lander's Peak, 1863 Albert Bierstadt (American, 1830–1902) Native Americans in their natural surroundings are introduced in Albert Bierstadt's portrayal of The Rocky Mountains, Lander's Peak. This portrait shows a direct relationship with Henry David Thoreau's sense of an intellectual and spiritual enrichment of nature, which is also demonstrated by the Native American customs. Bierstadt's painting catches the essence of Thoreau's life works. I will identify two ways Bierstadt and Thoreau are similar in their representations of Indians: one, in the Indians themselves, two in the relation of Indians to water. Thoreau's imagination, or enlightenment from the Indian, is in these two ways visualized in Bierstadt's The Rocky Mountains, Lander's Peak.

Shortly after he arrived, Tesla contracted cholera; he was bedridden for nine months and was near death multiple times. Nikola's father, in a moment of despair, promised to send him to the best engineering school if he recovered from the illness (his father had originally wanted him to enter the priesthood).
