Campaigners are calling for restrictions on the way magazines airbrush photos. Seeing your face and body transformed is an unnerving experience.

I read this on the BBC website a little while ago.  Very interesting to get the a non photographer/retoucher perspective.

Your Responsibility in Building Confidence | Faby and Carlo

Your Responsibility in Building Confidence | Faby and Carlo | Photography | Scoop.it

Photographing women is challenging and it can be incredibly rewarding. One of the things you need to remember, though, is that as photographer you are dealing with their body confidence. Building confidence in your customer through your images is one of the element that may separate you from the crowd. You should be aware, of course, that not investing enough time and efforts in photographing your customers well enough will do the opposite. Good women’s photographers do not come cheap also because they know how their images can play a big role in building confidence. The way women see themselves is a perception that our photographs help shape. Are you actively working hard in building confidence in your customers, or are you one of those photographers with just their own agenda? Let us tell you why building confidence through your photographs is much more important than just photographing women........

Peter Lindbergh - Fashion Photography: Seduction, Joy & Jolt | LensCulture | Photography | Scoop.it

Someone once described Peter Lindbergh’s work as a collection of love letters to women he considers beautiful. Because Lindbergh always felt like an outsider in both the fashion and photography worlds, he felt free of the mediums' conceptions.

So it is has not been many days since I wrote my last post with my INTITAL THOUGHTs on the new X-T1. If you read THAT POST you also now that I was a bit insecure about whether I would take the jump from the X-Pro1 to the X-T1 or just hold tight and wait for the X-Pro2. Well below you can see the result…..I simply could not resist, and after just a few days of light usage I am confident that I made the right decision.

In the new issue of Source we set out to find out how many of the most important people in photography are using Twitter. To get a sample of successful people in photography we have included full time curators, members of Magnum, professors of photography and photographers shortlisted for the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize. This totals 246 people of whom 36% have Twitter accounts although some of these accounts appear to be dormant; 27% have tweeted in the last six months

Twitter is by far the best source of links and news about photography. For unmediated conversation with other photographers is not that good because of the character limitation and unthreaded nature of the tool.

Sony Alpha 7R Review: Digital Photography Review

Sony Alpha 7R Review: Digital Photography Review | Photography | Scoop.it

Two products that have been getting a lot of attention lately are the Sony a7 and a7R full-frame mirrorless cameras. Last month we took an in-depth look at the Alpha 7, and were mostly pleased with how it turned out. Now it's time to take a look at its big brother, the Alpha 7R, which offers a 36 megapixel sensor with no low-pass filter and a more conventional autofocus system. Is the a7R worth the price premium over the a7? Click below to find out.

The Ultimate Guide To Long Exposure Photography | Joel Tjintjelaar

The Ultimate Guide To Long Exposure Photography | Joel Tjintjelaar | Photography | Scoop.it


Long exposure photography is a genre in photography that is often associated with fine art photography, due to the surreal and other worldly effects long exposure photography can bring to your photos. Of course besides that, notable fine art photographers like Michael Kenna, Michael Levin, Alexey Titarenko and Cole Thompson have been utilizing long exposure techniques in their work and that contributed to the association of long exposure photography with fine-art as well. Long exposure photography is also my favorite genre that I like to use in most of my work, mostly because of the surreal effect and also because it’s part of my personal philosophy on creating art by moving away from reality as many steps as possible to get closer to the individual essence of the artist. Parts of this section on long exposure photography have earlier been published on my website www.bwvision.com in 2009 in a time that such detailed information on long exposure photography and how to practically do it was very scarce and only incidentally available as paid tutorials while the information on my website was completely free. After that many other photographers started publishing information on long exposure photography on the web or in another digital form. In the past four years long exposure photography has emerged as a very popular and almost mainstream form of photography.......
