Pieter Hugo THIS MUST BE THE PLACE | Photography Now | Scoop.it

Martin Wilson: Make Every Picture Count | Vignette

Martin Wilson: Make Every Picture Count | Vignette | Photography Now | Scoop.it

My pictures are painstakingly created frame by frame on 35mm film. I develop the whole film, scan it, then piece the final image together on the computer, making a large contact sheet. It’s only when the completed filmstrips are laid side by side that the final image appears. The pictures usually take months to complete, as each frame is obsessively taken in sequence. No pasting together after the event, no cheating in Photoshop! If I make a mistake or take a frame out of place I start the film again from the beginning.

Arthur Tress – San Francisco 1964

Arthur Tress – San Francisco 1964 | Photography Now | Scoop.it

These black and white street photographs predates his better known Surrealism photograph project titled “The Dream Collector”. At this time, Tress’s methodology had fewer rules than others creating street photography, as he frequently would act as a director to arrange his subjects for specific compositions, in a sense foretelling of the work yet to come.

KayLynn Deveney, The Day-to-Day Life of Albert Hastings | Photography Now | Scoop.it

At first I felt shy about introducing myself to Bert, but eventually I did walk over to meet him and he greeted me warmly. Not long after our first meeting I asked Bert if he would work with me on a photographic project and soon I began to learn more about aspects of his life, including his experience living through WWII in Britain, his work as a general engineer, and his relationship to the flora and fauna outside his building.

Memories of India by Annu Palakunnathu Matthew - LensWork Daily | Photography Now | Scoop.it

One of the continual dances that I see in photography is the interplay between the big picture and the small details. The title of this portfolio, Memories of India, tells us the big picture. In the photograph above, however, it is the small details that attract our attention — and make this a successful photograph.
