Inspire | It's About the Stories: Ami Vitale

Inspire | It's About the Stories: Ami Vitale | Backlight Magazine. Photography and community. | Scoop.it

While working for publications like National Geographic, Time, and Newsweek, and for NGOs like UNICEF and Oxfam, photographer Ami Vitale has found herself shooting in some of the most beautiful, diverse, and dangerous places in the world.

A highly experienced professional, she still finds it something of a challenge to describe herself: Conflict photographer? Photojournalist? Documentarian? Travel photographer? At various times her work could fit into any of these categories. To her, it’s not the label that’s important; it’s the stories. And it’s the people and their cultures that she wants to reveal, with the ultimate goal of bringing people closer together. “Understanding that we are more alike than we are different…that’s important,” she says.

Backlight Magazine's insight:

A simple and touching interview with someone whose job is not to take pictures but to connect to people.

Smartphone Photography Evolves With Camera Apps and Related Tools - NYTimes.com

SMARTPHONE cameras aren’t just for quick snaps and selfies anymore. Phone cameras have improved substantially in recent years, and apps both for phones and to support traditional cameras have proliferated.

If you like to manually adjust camera settings, you’ll love Manual, $2 for iOS. Instead of relying on a phone’s camera to guess the right settings, users can tinker with shutter speed, white balance, exposure bracketing and more.
