He was a Master Landscape Photographer who developed the technique called The Zone System for exposing, developing & printing black & white photographs. What is I’m putting down here is a small fraction of his works, which mostly covers nature photography.
Such rich black and white image, boarder has in contrast and polarized images.

He was the most publicly known of the photographers who treated photography as a science based on knowledge of light, exposure, development time and post processing.
Adams pioneered the concept of pre-visualization of the finished image and how to go from the initial perception through the process tot he final image presented publicly. He also was a complete nature lover and brought unfamiliar but spectacular images to people who had no idea of what was beyond their horizon.
He’s one of the few favorite photographers of mine.
