Ansel Adams and Minor White were iconic, yet approached their art from quite different perspectives. Whereas Adams sought to create the perfect print, it was a picture of an object or scene that he wanted to depict in his own certain way.
Though similarly devoted to perfection, the more spiritually-oriented White sought to have his images represent the meaning he saw behind them, rather than merely glorify the subject.
Inasmuch as LF photographers are generally more thoughtful and deliberate in their approach to the making of a picture than those who work in other formats, do you feel they're more apt to follow in White's footsteps or Adams'? How do you feel about your own work?
