Innes National Park South Australia | Michael Petersen photography | Scoop.it
This Easter we went down to visit some relatives that are Park Rangers and happen to be at Innes at the moment. Innes is a fairly small park nestled at the end of the York Peninsular SA. If you look at a map of Australia look at the bottom middle and you will see some peninsulas 1 of witch looks like a leg and foot, well Innes would be the big toe on the foot. There have been a lot of ship wrecks in this area most occurred on the islands but 1 or 2 happened on the peninsular itself. following

Sony Alpha A7s Sample Photos - Initial Impression and Forum Updates | SonyAlphaLab.com

Sony Alpha A7s Sample Photos - Initial Impression and Forum Updates | SonyAlphaLab.com | Michael Petersen photography | Scoop.it
I've had the Sony Alpha A7s for about two weeks or so now, and I took a lot of sample photos so far using the FE 35mm f/2.8 Zeiss Lens and the Canon EF 135mm f/2 L Lens via the Metabones III Lens Adapter ;) Talk about killer High ISO performance? Incredible is really the word for it and when you can just Willy nilly use ISO 20000 or even 100,000 and still get usable results, the times have officially changed. Yeah, the A7s is a game changer in the High ISO department by a significant margin.You can now hand hold with very little light in the room, and this has never been possible before at a reasonable price. Using my older Sony Nex-6 as a base-line, the High ISO performance has not really improved beyond that and it's been pretty much the same performance on the top end at around ISO 25,600. The lower resolution A7s sensor (12mp) is much better than my A7r 36mp monster as far as high ISO is concerned and dynamic range. The raw files have more highlight and shadow information from what

Beautiful Photo Narratives Produced with the Wet Collodion Process

Beautiful Photo Narratives Produced with the Wet Collodion Process | Michael Petersen photography | Scoop.it
Self-taught photographer Alex Timmermans has been practicing photography his entire life. Over the course of his career, tons of digital equipment has become readily available. However, the artist finds that he prefers working in traditional photographic techniques—particularly the wet collodion process. Through this approach to photography, Timmermans produces portraits and fine art photographs filled with strange and surreal elements that suggest a variety of interesting narratives.
The Dutch photographer enjoys the very traditional and purposeful approach to photography. It can take a full hour to produce a single composition and there are many uncontrollable elements, including slight differences in chemicals or changing weather, that can result in unexpected surprises. "Seeing a picture changing in the fixer bath—from a negative to a positive—is a magic spectacle which makes it worthwhile to spend so much time and energy on it," explains Timmermans.

Legendary Celebrity iCons | Michael Petersen photography | Scoop.it
Robert DeNiro

Some of Hollywood's most revered celebrities are letting every blemish and wrinkle shine in these photographs by London and New York-based photographer Andy Gotts. Known for his portraits of the stars, Gotts has been photographing celebrities for more than twenty years. He travels alone, bringing along no assistants, stylists, or other distractions, and captures a raw intimacy in each image due to the time spent with his subjects.
His first book, Degrees, featured more than 100 famous actors and singers and raised about three million pounds for diabetes research. Now, this most recent project iCons will generate funds for Sir Elton John’s AIDS charity. From Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino, and Clint Eastwood to 1940’s leading lady Lauren Bacall, Gotts has turned our favorite memories of Hollywood into legendary photographs. He holds many honors, his work has been published nationally and internationally, and The National Portrait Gallery holds a selection of his photographs…

Revealing Photos of People Lying Down in a Week's Worth of Trash

Revealing Photos of People Lying Down in a Week's Worth of Trash | Michael Petersen photography | Scoop.it
California-based photographer Gregg Segal provides a visual representation of the trash problem in the US with his revealing series 7 Days of Garbage. The photographer invited people from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds—friends, neighbors, acquaintances, and near-strangers—to come to his backyard with a week's worth of their garbage. Spread out over natural backgrounds like sand, grass, and water, the subjects wallow in the trash they've accumulated over seven days, providing a shocking glimpse of consumption and waste in the US.
While some subjects filtered out the most disgusting garbage in their bags, others let all of the contents be photographed. Takeout boxes, crumpled paper, orange peels, and empty bottles form a bed under the subjects, painting a picture of their different lifestyles in addition to their rubbish. Segal says, "Subjects are photographed surrounded by their trash in a setting that is part nest, part archeological record. We’ve made our bed and in it we…

Travelling Light | Tuan Nguyen

Travelling Light | Tuan Nguyen | Michael Petersen photography | Scoop.it

When the Nikon D800 was launched, I knew it would be the camera for me, I loved its resolving power and the images that it can produce even in low light. I took it every where I went, sacrificing my luggage allowance so that I could take it on flights to the continent, and I was rewarded with superb images, some have even won awards. On a recent flight, my camera bag was measured at 12 Kg without the relatively lightweight carbon fibre Manfrotto 190CXPro4. So, on average I would walk around with 15 kg or 33 lbs strapped to my back, which makes for a great work out, but by the end of the day I could feel every ounce of it. I liked the classic retro design of the Fujifilm X-series when they first came out, but never bothered to give them a try until last Christmas when I bought an X-E2 to take with me on a cruise around the Mediterranean. The auto focus was slow, and the electronic view finder was a bit laggy in demanding light, but when it grabbed an image, it was really pleasing, especially in my favourite B&W format. I got in contact with Fujifilm about trying out their new X-T1, and they had kindly offered to lend me one for a week in April. At the beginning of March I decided with few friends to attend the Photoshow in Birmingham, and when I laid hands on the X-T1 and saw what a big improvement it was on the X-E2, I had to buy it. Even though I still shoot with the D800, the X-T1 has become my go anywhere and take anything camera due  to its super light weight. In the following images, I hope to demonstrate its versatility and overall image quality ranging from street photography to long exposure landscapes.........

Mario Pires's curator insight, June 11, 6:06 AM

"Most recently, I began a series of photogravures, which continue an exploration of self and navigation, braiding my past to my present journey as an artist. Appropriately, the photogravure process itself is a journey into the history of printing, and the direct involvement and living imperfection of the artist’s hand."

Dreams and Mysteries (14 photos) | Michael Petersen photography | Scoop.it
Julie de Waroquier is a gifted photographer based in Lyon, France. Her area of expertise resides in the conceptual, in life portraits, and in the surreal. Within her photographs, there is a tie between the mysterious and the intriguing. "I try to make reality look surreal in my pictures," says Waroquier. "I prefer showing the world as it could be rather than as it is. Photographers such as Tim Walker inspire me a lot in this dreamlike pursuit."Be they realistic or surreal, I try to give all of my shots a poetic and conceptual dimension; I want to create new worlds that may surprise the people who observe them. I try to catch people's universal dreams."Julie de Waroquier

Colin Pantall's blog: The Hot Book! | Michael Petersen photography | Scoop.it

I quite like the idea of the 'hot' book, I like the idea of limited editions and books selling out and oh, look, I've got one and it's worth lots of money.
It's all a load of nonsense of course, but it adds a certain energy and gives us all something to talk about.

Mario Pires's curator insight, June 10, 2:01 AM

"So there is a mode of discourse that goes with this apparently objective style, and the assumptions of the typology stick with us even though we know they are nonsense. It's like squaring the circle. I guess it's the same with Fontcuberta's work. He has fun with the presentation of science and makes merry with vitrines and the archive. But the vitrine of the art world is where his reputation is made. It's like he rips the ground from under his feet, but still he floats. And that's a miracle!"
