Why to use RAW formats for shooting

Why to use RAW formats for shooting | Photography and Photo Gears | Scoop.it
If you are a professional photographer then you must have been told about using the RAW format. It is quiet common these days. But do we know why it is RAW?
Miranda Powley's insight:

RAW is the best while shooting, we know that. But why? Do you know that shooting with direct RAW is way superior than shooting with JPEG and converting to RAW? Let’s see why and how..

Bonnie, a life in prostitution | Photojournalist: Marie Hald

Bonnie, a life in prostitution | Photojournalist: Marie Hald | Photography and Photo Gears | Scoop.it
39-year old Bonnie is a danish mother of three. Since the age of 18, she has been working as a prostitute. Her first time having sex for money was at a visit at a brothel in a small town. Bonnie and her friend were in need of money and tried it out.

 

The experience was unpleasant and Bonnie was shy and ashamed of her body. But because of the money, she kept working. Bonnie has a house In a small village in Sealand. Here she works everyday from 9-4. When her day is over she picks up her kids and goes home to her real house in another nearby village. Her oldest daughter Michella (16) has her own apartment and her son Oliver (14) lives at home. 6-year old Noa, Bonnies youngest son, thinks his mother has a job as a cleaning lady.

 

The older children know what her profession is, and so does their school, the community and so on. It is not easy for Oliver and Michella and Michella has been called names and asked how much her mother costs. That made her very upset. Bonnie pays taxes and is registered as a business. Although she is in trouble with the IRS and has been to prison more than once. The single most important thing in Bonnie's life is her children." - MARIE HALD

Food photography with Fujifilm X100s | Paul Schlemmer

Food photography with Fujifilm X100s | Paul Schlemmer | Photography and Photo Gears | Scoop.it


Again, zero experience with paid food photography and Fujifilm X100s as my only workhorse camera. When I was doing my research, I haven't found any real life test of a X100 or a 23(35)mm lens for a food photography, which is now my main motivation why I'm writing this post. Write a blog you wanna read, right? Since the restaurant cooks mainly in italian style, I knew I want honest, rustic&homemade feel to the pictures so for lighting I've used one old Profoto PRO-81 head with a 4ft octa from behind (I've read that that's the easiest way to make food look shiny&moist) with a white foamboard reflector as a front-fill and a raw wood planks as a background. (The restaurant doesn't have any good backgrounds or window light so that's why I went this way).....

Alexis Buehler's curator insight, October 27, 2014 3:22 PM

As many of you out there know, our Instagram feeds are constantly filled with delicious looking food that makes our stomachs growl. To some, it may not be considered an art, but this food photography begs to differ. Fujifilm X100s enable photographers to take their food photography to the next level, making our mouths salivate just at the sight. This photographer, too, considers himself an amateur, but using this film makes it seem like he's been photographing for years. The quality in the photographs brings out both the texture and quality in the foods, which makes perfect advertising material for any restaurant.

 

This film might just be on my next Christmas list after looking at these images.

The documentary was held in Norilsk between February 2012 and February 2013.
The documentary was supported by the Lagardère foundation grant for photography.

« Days of Night – Nights of Day » is about the daily life of the inhabitants of Norilsk, a mining city northernmost of the polar circle with a population of more than 170 000.  The city, its mines and metallurgical factories were constructed by prisoners of the Gulag.  With 60% of the present population involved in the industrial process, this documentary aims to investigate human adaptation to extreme climate, ecological disaster and isolation.
Norilsk is the 7th most polluted city in the world.  The average temperature is -10C, reaching lows of -55C in winter, when for two months the city is plunged into polar night.
The living conditions of the people of Norilsk are unique, making their plight incomparable. - Elena Chernyshova

The Perfect Lens For Food Photography?

The Perfect Lens For Food Photography? | Photography and Photo Gears | Scoop.it

You can't take great pictures of food without great equipment. Now, we all have our personal preferences, so I'm not saying there is a "best" or "perfect" camera lens to use for food photography, but I'm a Nikon fan, so here's a bit about an 85mm Micro PC Lens. It's really expensive for most people, but it gives you an idea of yet another important component to the very complex process that is food photography.

I am a canon fan and love food photography. If you are going shopping for a good lens, check out Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM Lens. Yes, it is rather expensive but if you don't want to compromise on archiving the delicacies prepared this Christmas, I will say, go for it!
