Tao of Photography: Discarnate Muses and Artists

Tao of Photography: Discarnate Muses and Artists | Photography Now | Scoop.it

To take photographs. Such was the entry point into photography. Along the creek beds and waterfalls seeing was always possession and camera affirmed ownership. Since then other modes, other doors have superseded, for example, to make photographs. The greed, however, has never really disappeared.

This Week In Photography Books – António Júlio Duarte

This Week In Photography Books – António Júlio Duarte | Photography Now | Scoop.it

This book has it in spades. There are no people, the use of flash dominates, and boy do these photographs shine. Crystal chandeliers, gold-leaf encrusted sculptures, porcelain goddesses, mirrored-disco balls, metallic drapes, it’s all in there. Even more disturbing, elephant tusks standing at attention, Michael Jackson’s white glove resting on velvet, and cash money circulating through a vacuum-tube like something Bob Barker would dance to if he were dosed with LSD.

Interpreting Black and White, Part I

Interpreting Black and White, Part I | Photography Now | Scoop.it

I don't think there's any "this is best" in play here, actually; at no time did I find myself thinking in terms of "best" or "worst." I'm not saying I like everybody's equally (this isn't kindergarten, and I don't) or that you should, but I took the exercise at its face value—people are imposing on the picture how they like to see B&W, or how they like to see this image in B&W. So, okay. We're all essentially talking about our own tastes. Not a contest.
