In the 1932 a small group of photographers in San Francisco opened an art show of beautiful photographs. The aim of this group was create a new genre of photography at that time. These were photographs that were admired for the beauty of their image quality as well as their subject matter, form, and composition. Some members of this group were Imogen Cunningham, Edward Weston, and Ansel Adams. The name these artists referred to themselves as? Group f.64
f/64 is also a camera setting that creates an extremely sharp image that’s rendered almost completely in focus from the foreground to background. Using this camera setting also requires the photograph to be taken in a very deliberate manner that takes time to create the intended result. Group f.64 used this philosophy in creating their art to epic results.
