Oublier Photoshop? Le World Press Photo fait avancer le débat | L'Atelier des icônes

Oublier Photoshop? Le World Press Photo fait avancer le débat | L'Atelier des icônes | Backlight Magazine. Photography and community. | Scoop.it

“Il n’existe pas de vérité brute en photographie. En numérique comme en argentique, une photo brute est inexploitable, elle nécessite d’être traitée. Or, pour chaque image, des centaines d’interprétations sont possibles.”

On aurait tort de croire que, parce que la traduction médiatique du débat fait pencher la balance du côté de ceux qui se revendiquent eux-mêmes de la “vieille école” (Patrick Baz), c’est cette position qui exprime la “vérité” du champ photographique (ou que, comme le pense Sébastien Calvet, le WPP n’est plus légitime puisqu’il cède à “une déformation de l’esprit du prix d’origine vers une course à celui qui aura la photo la plus esthétique de la misère humaine”).

 

Retouche ou postproduction, caricature ou interprétation: derrière le choix des mots se lit l’antagonisme de deux générations de photographes, de deux esthétiques opposées du photojournalisme. Deuxième prix WPP en 2011, Corentin Fohlen n’hésite pas à intervenir sur l’ambiance de ses images, et voit lui aussi ses photos critiquées pour leur aspect “publicitaire”. Dans cette joute où l’on entend surtout les voix des Anciens, c’est pourtant aux Modernes que le WPP a décidé de donner la première place.

Un guide pour prendre en main instagram 

Pascal Faucompré's curator insight, February 15, 2013 4:59 AM

J'avoue ne pas encore bien exploiter Instagram. Certains d'entre vous ont-ils trouvé une application intéressante de ce réseau pour leurs clients ?

Pattack Trac's curator insight, February 18, 2013 4:37 AM

Toujours utile, le jour où je m'y mettrais aussi... Toutefois, comme c'est à la mode, on peut toujours imaginer des concours photos de concerts sur Instagram, cela pourrait plaire aux aficionados du coin...

Do mobile photographers want to print more?

Do mobile photographers want to print more? | Backlight Magazine. Photography and community. | Scoop.it

A recent study from IDC Analytics indicates that more users would print from their mobile devices if they were properly educated on how to do so. The analytics firm claimed that the percentage of users who printed from a mobile device increased "dramatically" in 2012 but a large percentage of smartphone and tablet users still do not know how to print from their phones and tablets or they think that their device doesn't allow mobile printing at all.

Nokia Lumia 920 Camera Review

Nokia Lumia 920 Camera Review | Backlight Magazine. Photography and community. | Scoop.it

The Nokia Lumia 920 sports a very capable camera. Thanks to its optical image stabilization, it can capture clear images at low shutter speeds that would elude any other phone on the market. This makes it an ace at low-light photography of stationary objects, and partially addresses the Achilles heel of every phone camera on the market except Nokia’s own 808: poor low light performance. OIS also helps with borderline shutter speeds that non-stabilized phones routinely use anyway. While they simply hope for the best, the 920 stands an excellent chance of delivering a sharp image.

 

The multi-aspect-ratio sensor combined with a wide angle lens also gives the 920 a uniquely broad view of the world that will tickle anyone who feels stymied by their phone’s boxy, narrow outlook.

 

Unfortunately, the 920’s daylight performance is only OK. There’s at least as much noise as much of the competition, if not more. So much engineering has clearly gone into the 920’s camera unit that we’d hope for class-leading sensor performance, but it seems to be middle of the pack. The good news is that with 7 or 8 megapixels to play with, a lot of the sins visible at 100% disappear at more realistic magnifications.

 

The 920 is a solid offering, especially at $99 on contract from AT&T in the U.S. Nokia’s innovation around the camera takes mobile photography into new levels of darkness, but don’t expect miracles from the phone’s typically-performing sensor.

Sony World Photography Awards

Sony World Photography Awards | Backlight Magazine. Photography and community. | Scoop.it

The Open competition saw 46,184 entries this year, from across 160 countries.  Judged by WPO, Sony and Damien Demolder of Amateur Photographer Magazine, the Open competition seeks the true enthusiast and lover of photography.


The competition is designed so as to provide committed amateur photographers with the chance to have their work awarded as well as exhibited internationally, providing critical feedback of their work and the chance to be discovered.

 

A single, brilliant snapshot, is all it takes to capture the attention of our jury. Technical ability and composition also win points of course, though above all, they must have that wow factor and stand alone.

Desolate Industrial Australian Landscapes Photographed at Dusk

Mark Kimber’s Edgeland collection was born after being challenged by an art school professor to ‘go back to where you came from and deal with that’. He returned to what he previously remembered to be nothing but land from his youth in Port Adelaide, Australia only to find it industrialized.

Using long shutter speeds, Kimber’s collection explores the short lapse of time between day and night, and it’s this zone of time in Edgeland that creates a sense of nostalgia, as well as a yearning for either more daylight or to be enveloped in the darkness of night.

In the interview Lowy gives reasons for using his iPhone, especially in conflict zones when he's reporting, which you may have heard before: "it was anonymous, it wasn’t particularly heavy, it didn’t get in the way of being intimate with a potential subject. And it was fast, I could just pull the phone out of my pocket and take a picture as things were happening in front of me."

[Expert] Instagram et les marques : explications et cas par Grégory Pouy

[Expert] Instagram et les marques : explications et cas par Grégory Pouy | Backlight Magazine. Photography and community. | Scoop.it

Evidemment, il y a des précautions à prendre sur Instagram comme sur n’importe quel support :

1. Poster du contenu qui s’adresse aux autres et qui ne soient pas autocentrés (mettre en photo uniquement vos nouveaux produits ou nouvelles pubs ne fonctionnera pas).

2. Les gens qui vous suivent ne font pas partie de « votre communauté », ce sont des contacts privilégiés par contre, qu’il faut traiter comme tel.

3. Instagram n’a pas de valeur pour toutes les marques et surtout doit pouvoir s’inscrire quelque part dans votre stratégie globale  – par pitié, ne proposez pas une « stratégie Instagram » comme j’ai vu des « stratégies Facebook ».

4. Les usages et les besoins diffèrent d’un pays à l’autre

Even if you don't like ballet, the photographs are so beautiful and inspiring that you will like them. It is a mix of subtle and strong, clean and dirty, quiet and noisy. The perfection of ballet movements in a city that bring dreams to live, really beautiful. We will show only a few images here, so make sure to check out The Ballerina Project Facebook page to see more inspiring images. ;)

The New York City Ballerina Project grew from the idea of New York City as a magnet for creativity; each photograph is a collaborative work of dance, fashion design and photography played out against the city's landscape.
