I love photography and hopefully will someday be able to take some classes on it. But for now, I make use with my imagination and creativity. I love finding great photos online though and sharing with other who enjoy beautiful photography.

An awesome story. Just make sure you take notes because there is a lot of information I didn't know about. I printed it for future reference. How about you? What is your inspiration and genre of art?

Although I am too much of a novice to be able to add to this list of photography "language" hopefully others will be able to. Plus I learned a lot as well. That is what is great about the internet. You never know what you might find.

London Street Photography | Simon Burgess

London Street Photography | Simon Burgess | Photography | Scoop.it


Simon Burgess is a talented photographer based in the Hampshire Village of Nether Wallop. After a recent dose of inspiration, he took to his favorite London markets for a unique project. Armed with a Fuji X100 and Replichrome, film presets for Lightroom, he began creating compelling images, reminiscent of classic film street photography, but updated for the modern era. We caught up with Simon to learn about the markets that inspire him so much, and how Replichrome fits into his post-processing. The Market on Columbia Road kicks into life really early every Sunday morning, when an everyday East End London Street is transformed into a bustling Flower Market. Despite the stallholders shouting prices every opportunity at anyone who appears in need of a bunch of flowers and has money to spend, it’s a really relaxed place to spend Sunday morning. There is always good street music, and for people watching there is nowhere better. It’s also a great place for vintage and second-hand everythingness. I saw a pile of old Vogue magazines from the ’80s, full of great ads all done with film, of course. They made me think that I should try and do a little series from the market using only one lens, a 35mm equivalent on Fuji X100, and everything processed with Replichrome.....

Film celebrates a century of New York street photography

Film celebrates a century of New York street photography | Photography | Scoop.it
For more than 100 years, New York has been captured on film by photographers that roam the city's streets. Now a new documentary turns the camera on them.
Holley Jacobs's insight:

Everybody Street: The film 
An awesome collection of photographs and I only wish I had been part of the film that documented a hundred years of New York Street Photography. I wouldn't have been able to narrow them down; I am sure.

The Line Between Art and Photography

The Line Between Art and Photography | Photography | Scoop.it
Here's a provocative question: is this image art? Why? Why not? Have a think about this carefully, for a moment.
Holley Jacobs's insight:

I will tastefully just disagree with this interpretation. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but I, personally, think that photography is an art form, no different than writing. So, my question to you is this:are writers not artists as well because they are now using technology to write? Does having James Patterson or Stephen King offering e-books on Amazon make them less of craftsmen?
