Posted by on Thursday July 7, 2016 | Video

Perhaps one of Ansel Adams’ most memorable observations is that great photographs aren’t taken, they’re made.

In his day, the making of photographs took place in the dark, amid the vapors of chemicals. In this short video from Marc Silber of Advancing Photography, you’ll get a glimpse through Adams’ darkroom and learn from his son Michael how the master worked his magic.

It’s a far cry from Photoshop.
