Ansel Adams’ Son On Shooting Moonrise Over Hernandez

Ansel Adams was an American photographer and environmentalist who took many well-known landscape photographs of the American West. One of his most famous shots was entitled Moonrise Over Hernandez. In this video, Ansel Adams’s son, Michael Adams, recalls being with his father when he took the famous photograph: “I was seven years old, we were coming back to Santa Fe from North and Ansel saw this image. He pulled the car off the road very rapidly, got out, got us – there were two of us also with him – and we were trying to get the tripod and he got the camera on it and he made it – he looked at the picture, and then he wanted his exposure meter but he couldn’t find it.”
