New York (by Saul Leiter, 1950)

New York (by Saul Leiter, 1950) | Photography Matters | Scoop.it

“I spent much of my life being ignored, but I was happy in this way. Being ignored is a great privilege. So I learned to see what others do not see and react differently. Just watched the world without expecting anything in particular.” – Saul Leiter

Shadows and Highlights: The Mark of Excellence

Shadows and Highlights: The Mark of Excellence | Photography Matters | Scoop.it

In the Zone System developed by Ansel Adams there are 10 zones or shades from pure white to pure black.

 

If you take a close look at most exposure compensation settings; regardless if your camera is digital or 35mm, most of them only give you a plus or minus range of two f-stops. If the original setting that your camera uses (18% gray) is zone 5 and you can only expose at plus or minus two stops, that only gives you a visual range of five f-stops.

The Importance of the Subject in Your Photography

The Importance of the Subject in Your Photography | Photography Matters | Scoop.it
I cannot emphasize how important it is to give your subject the place of importance in an image. It’s correct placement and the removal of any competition only makes the photo more effective.

Understanding Light in Photography

Understanding Light in Photography | Photography Matters | Scoop.it
The greatest composition will produce a poor image if the lighting is wrong. Bright or dull, hard or soft, sunlit or cloudy, sunrise or midday; all these give different light qualities that need to be used in the best way to generate the best images.
