Sting Photographed by Annie Leibovitz

Sting Photographed by Annie Leibovitz | Recalibration Photography | Scoop.it
Friend and collaborator John Logan charts the artist’s journey of self-recovery from creative drought.
David Hellard's insight:

Sting is apparently visiting an ocean world much smaller than Earth, given the odd slope of the horizon!

Lol. Technically and artistically this is damn near a perfect portrait. I'm just surprised someone of Leibovitz's caliber left a sloped horizon on a final product like this, particularly when it could be fixed so easily. IDK, maybe she doesnt like to Photoshop..

Forget the rest - Simply the best. Sony A7r - Carl Zeiss 55mm f/1.8 - Raw samples. Cameras come and cameras go. That marvel we thought state of the art a few years ago becomes subject to derisory offers at car boot sales.

Light Cast

Light Cast | Recalibration Photography | Scoop.it
One of the island tufas at Mono Lake. The light appearing to come off the tufa was actually a rainbow that I wasnt able to capture for some reason even though I fired off a mess of shots. Chalk it up to one more Mono Lake mystery....

Had a fantastic time photographing the tufas at Mono Lake in March. I'm particularly happy with how this one came out.

My first ever selective colorization. At first I did it this way just for fun, but after looking at the full-color and full B&W, I actually liked this the best.

David Hellard's insight:

An interesting read. I have to say that personally I'm tired of shlepping around my computo-phone and even more tired of seeing everyone's out-of-focus, poorly quad-toned pet/food iPhone pics. With any luck there will be an emphasis placed on quality photos again in the future.
