Michael Kosmides's insight:

Photo essay, following Orthodox Jewish women.

"In my photographs, I have sought to avoid the common stereotypes frequently attributed to Orthodox Jews. I have attempted to show aspects of these women, their most spiritual ones, those that transcend their religion and its strict rules governing the sanctity of their bodies. I chose to delve into a deeper dimension of my subjects’ holiness–one of femininity accompanying every gesture, every moment of their daily lives as religious women. In my images, head coverings, long-sleeved dresses, modest skirts, and shoes ceased to be barriers to unwanted eyes, but instead became vessels, unveiling a deep, emotional access in the search for meaning as a woman."

"In many ways, Nissen’s picture also has the quality of a film still tableau. The photograph is not a news shot, it is not a picture of an important event, it is not even a picture of a public event."

Scott Kelby - Automotive Photography on Exposure

Scott Kelby - Automotive Photography on Exposure | Photography for Journalists | Scoop.it
My love of cars is something I inherited from my big brother Jeff who has been a sports car buff since…well…forever. Over the years I’ve taken a few car shots here and there, all just using natural light outdoors, but last year after watching a training class from UK-based automotive photographer Tim Wallace, I set to try and learn how to actually light cars and thanks to Tim’s brilliant teaching, my first outing didn’t result in a total disaster, so I was hooked. During 2013 I was able to work in six car shoots (I might have fit a few more in, but I learned that one of the biggest challenges of shooting sports cars is finding friends with cool sports cars).The opening shot you see above was from my first-ever studio car shoot. We searched the local area for a studio that had a large enough overhead mounted softbox to light a car, and we found one we could rent for 1/2-day for around $400. The studio was just barely big enough to drive a car inside (in fact, once inside you have to jack up the front wheels on rollers to reposition the car). For the shot above I used their overhead lighting (5 White Lightning strobes mounted on metal poles, shooting straight down through a large silk diffuser, so it was kind of like a giant soft box — see the behind-the-scenes shot at the end of this post). This was the day I learned that shooting indoors a car is like shooting into a mirror — it reflects everything, so you spend 90% of your time covering up things that reflect into the car with either large black panels or black felt draped everywhere.
