Pseudo Ansell

Here’s what you can do to approximate an Ansel Adams photo with a modern DSLR — it’s only f.22 compared to some of his which were f.64 – but that was the smallest aperture I could get with the crappy kit (18-55 mm) lens & not putting a filter on. I took this with a tripod at 3 seconds for exposure time, with the lens set to widest angle, 18mm. After shooting this I took all of the luminance and color vibrance out of the .RAW file before processing in Photoshop. The jpg compression needed to get it “blog consumable” also loses a lot of the detail. (in the full sized photo you can see individual slots in the hubcaps of the truck in the background)
