Minimalist Photography ~ 4 Tips To Keep It Simple With A Maximum Impact

Minimalist Photography ~ 4 Tips To Keep It Simple With A Maximum Impact | your Sc00pS | Scoop.it

Minimalism is a very subjective concept in the art world. The Webster dictionary defines it as follows: A style or technique that is characterized by extreme spareness and simplicity. Some love it, others hate it, but no one seems to be indifferent

"SITUATED WITHIN the world’s highest mountain range and just south of the Tibet Autonomous Region, Mustang is one of the last places in the world where traditional Tibetan culture remains intact. However, due to China’s ever-increasing presence in the region, and their building of a road connecting Lower Mustang to the walled city of Lo Manthang, near the Tibetan border, this status is under threat."

We all love Bokeh, don’t we. Bokeh simply means Blur in Japanese language, they are normally in shape of number of lens blades causing wonderful round patterns all over the frame. A Bokeh can be good as well as bad caused by chromatic aberrations or the Len’s Aperture shapes. It is very pleasing for any photographer, which just makes them but fast prime lenses suiting for wonderful low light photography as well as pleasing bokeh....

"Journalism is a way of noting — well, some journalists are wonderful writers and others are just putting facts one after the other. And facts are not interesting. It’s a point of view on facts which is important, and in photography it is the evocation." - Henri Cartier-Bresson

BRONDOLO JAMES's curator insight, June 22, 2013 6:51 AM

As Maitre I use only focal one fixed one 35mn / f2 digital technology for all my photos of street, it is the equivalent of one 50mn argentic. I pursue on this way that he(it) drew, not to copy him(it). But to photograph humbly with my sensibility. A sense(direction) of the observation sharpened is needed to stage the street.... Because every photo has to tell a story, and not serve the technique.

Portraits from a month in Bolivia | Adrian Seah

Portraits from a month in Bolivia | Adrian Seah | your Sc00pS | Scoop.it


Named after Latin American independence hero Simon Bolivar, who had a hand in the liberation of Panama, Venezuela, Peru, Bolivia and Colombia from their Spanish overlords, Bolivia is a landlocked country in South America. Having lost its sole access to the ocean and its mineral rich Atacama and Antofagasta region to Chile during the War of the Pacific, Bolivia nonetheless remains abundantly rich in natural resources but ironically, is also one of the poorest countries in Latin America.

We had heard little about the country prior to our visit but a month in the country had given us an insight into the lives of Bolivians and its extremely varied landscape, from the arid altiplano of Uyuni and the Chilean border, to the colonial riches of Sucre, from the highest capital city in the world La Paz to the tranquil town of Copacabana by the shores of Lake Titicaca. Like its landscape, Bolivians are a huge mish mash of varied cultures and languages, chief amongst them, Spanish, Quechua, Aymara and Guarani.

My experience of interaction with Bolivians gave me the impression that they are a hardworking, hardy and extremely proud people, more reserved than their neighbours up north in Peru and down south in Chile but with a warmth that lies just below the surface, if you would but take the time to know them. I captured these portraits of people at work, at play and most of all, at ease during my month in Bolivia. They offer me a peek into a culture so unique and different from my own.....

Making the move from a DSLR to the Fuji X pro system | Nick Lukey

Making the move from a DSLR to the Fuji X pro system | Nick Lukey | your Sc00pS | Scoop.it


I see lots of questions regarding moving from a DSLR to the Fuji X pro system, whilst I have moved fully into the Fuji camp and have been extremly happy with my choice, many will be somewhat disappointed with the system. The Fuji Xpro 1 is a visual delight, and engineered to a really high standard, the image delivery is incredible, colour accuracy is superb. The recent firmware upgrades are a welcome addition, (these really should have been implemented a long time ago). Just having the ability to quickly change focus area on the thumbpad is joyous. I usually see the grumbles about autofocus speed to be the main gripe, and one that leads folk to stay with the DSLR. However if you persevere and learn how to use the camera, learn how to overcome its focus issues, you will be so pleased with the image results. Once focus is found its totally bang on. I have always loved Fuji for their approach to applying their knowledge gained in film development, and applying this to their digital camera systems. The jpegs are faultless, I looked at raw files and found no real gains to be had by using raw mode, this applies only to my thinking and I am not wishing to create a raw/jpeg debate. It suits my workflow. I remain totally in love with the system, but sometimes get quite infuriated at Fuji seemingly lack of understanding when it comes to camera ergonomics. Why produce a lovely little handgrip, that leaves you no access to the battery/card chamber, go figure!! Generally speaking the niggles I have with this little beauty are forgiven when I see the results from the Xtrans sensor printed as a 40x30 print.....

Le journalisme en profondeur nous permet de donner un sens au monde. Pourtant, il s'en produit de moins en moins par les médias traditionnels. Jetez un oeil et appuyez Emphas.is qui a produit plus de 50 projets depuis son lancement en 2011.

__________________________________________


In-depth journalism helps us make sense of the world. Yet, less and less of it is produced everyday.

The effects of a decade of newsroom cutbacks are real - and the public is taking notice. According to the 2013 Pew's Project for Excellence in Journalism, one in three adults in the US have abandoned their preferred media outlet "because it no longer provided them with the news they were accustomed to getting."

In a survey done by emphas.is in collaboration with the University of Amsterdam, 78.4% said original stories don’t get published anymore, and most media copy what they find in other media. As a consequence a tide of journalists with important stories to tell, are stranded without a voice.

Infrared Photography with the Fujifilm X100S | Liverpool Photographer

Infrared Photography with the Fujifilm X100S | Liverpool Photographer | your Sc00pS | Scoop.it


Last year, I took a fancy to infrared photography with the Fujifilm X100 and Hoya IR filter.  Whilst the results from this combination provided me with great results, I found a tripod to be a vital piece of equipment whenever I used it due to the lengthy exposures required.  The X100 performed well at high ISOs, but not so great when it came to capturing landscapes in infrared where there tends to be more scrutiny on details. With the release of the X100S and its enhanced high ISO performance offering the possibility of going tripod-less whilst using an IR filter, I set off for a week away in the English countryside.  I wasn’t disappointed with the results from the camera. The combination of a higher resolution 16MP X-Trans sensor for more detail, the improved high ISO performance for less noise, and unintrusive leaf shutter meant I was able to hand-hold the X100S at shutter speeds as slow as 1/10 of a second and still get sharp images with bags of detail even at ISO 3200 or even 6400.....

An expensive option to photograph IR, but hey, why work all our lives if not to spend on our seeing our world in new ways

William Lee's comment, June 13, 2013 5:07 PM
You're not wrong about it being expensive! However, I didn't get the X100S purely as an IR camera rather it's my main non-work camera and I wanted to be able to use it when the light is too harsh for my non-IR tastes. Adding a relatively cheap IR filter seemed to be a good way to achieve this and it opened up a whole new photographic world for me :)

5 Lessons for Living in Street Photography (and Life) | Eric Kim

5 Lessons for Living in Street Photography (and Life) | Eric Kim | your Sc00pS | Scoop.it

....

Recently I wrote an article by Paul Graham titled “The Top of My Todo List” in which he mentioned the article above in how to live a fulfilling life.

He mentioned how we are always so busy and caught up in our to-do lists. He used the article above and used the opposite maxims to create his own list (to prevent regrets in life):

 

1. Don’t ignore your dreams

2. Don’t work too much

3. Say what you think

4. Cultivate friendships

5. Be happy

 

This made a lot of sense to me– as they gave me direct action steps to prevent regret in my life. And what better mentors to give life advice than the elderly who have already lived their lives–and are ready to pass away?
