Photographers Tell How They Took These Incredible, Award-Winning Wildlife ...
Arielle Brutus's insight:

This new article recommended by scoop.it gave a somewhat familiar insight as the last article. It was also an interview but if the worlds top photographers who's pictures were award winning. They talked about hot taking pictures if wildlife can be hard because it takes patience to wait and carefully observe the animal and wait for the right time to snap a photo and it has to be precise or else the picture won't be good. Each photographer took pictures in different environments. Some underwater, some near a volcanic river lake, jungle, forest, and prairie. They also describes the equipment used for each picture such as for underwater they used a Tokina fisheye lens at 17mm, and for the prairie something complicated as a  Canon EOS 5D Mark II + 16-35mm f2.8 lens at 16mm. This is good for my research because I learned the many different types and forms of cameras and tripods used. It also gave me an insight to how wildlife photographers work.

A Photographer's Guide to Working with Magazines - Tuts+ Photography Article | Photography in The Modern World | Scoop.it

Magazines present a great opportunity to have your work seen by many people in diverse places. Magazines, like most of the journalism field, have had their ups and downs over the past years, but many still exist and are always in need of great photography. This article will help you understand what magazines and publishers are looking for in terms of photos, quality, standards and editing. | Tags: Inspiration
Arielle Brutus's insight:

Unlike the others, this article was what was directly related to my question. It was a guide to submitting your photos to a magazine cover. It talks about the importance if picture size, how well the editing is done, is the picture taken horizontally, or vertically, toning tips and legal things such as rights and ownership when a magazine publishes your work. In size matters they say "For news/sports/editorial publications, a picture from a standard DSLR will work quite well because megapixels aren't as important as they use to be." Coming to terms these are simple things outing roaches should know and I'm glad I'm learning them. There were also many tips on how to start out such as that magazines are always looking for the photographers with the most sharp pictures, and that when starting always start by sending your works to small businesses first and then expand to larger industries later on if you become  successful. Though the other articles I read were good this one by far had the best information on how to start out as a photographer and it had some really good tips

Arielle Brutus's insight:

 This book talked about eve since the first photograph was taken about 200 years ago, cameras and photography in general has evolved into something even bigger than anyone thought it would. Photography has  become on of the most acceptable and persuasive forms of media today. Photographs are used as advertisements, to sell products, record and communicate. You can even capture a single unforgettable moment in one click.in the documentary of photography. There are many different genres such as global photography, still life, portraiture, landscape. I have not read the entire book yet but the overview talks about how this is a great resource for people wanting to learn more or people who are interested in photography, and to be hired for a company as a photographer I must know the basics of photography at first. I find this information very useful and I feel as though this could be the start of me becoming a better photographer and better understanding of what I aspire to do.

Arielle Brutus's insight:


For anyone out there (including me) who wants to find out where they can take classes to become a professional fashion photographer the Academy of Art University of San Francisco is the place to be. Their website on that course provided me with insightful information on what I needed to know if that type of photography is what I want to make a career out of. It requires dedication to build a reputation in an industry where having contacts is vital for success. Though it may seem like easy snaps there is a lot of work involved in being a fashion photographer and a lot of teamwork. For example the photographers must be able to fuse and collaborate their works and efforts with the art directors, stylists, makeup artists, models and on-set support workers, or the production will fail. The website describes how each day is a new challenge working with different models to creat fresh new looks also working with difficulties such as unpredictable weather, background noise and difficult terrain when shooting. One quote from the website that describes this job well is "star-studded events, traveling to exotic locations and working flexible hours are just some of the benefits to being a photographer in the exciting world of fashion. Established fashion photographers command large salaries and work with the best designers in the world."

<br>I found this very infortmative and useful. I love you recommended a place to where you can become a professional fashion photographer. Most people not know where to begin so that is definitely helpful. I wouldn’t know where to begin honestly. Also I agree that it does take dedication to become successful. You have to put your blood and tears into it if you want it to become something big. I love how you described the website has so I have an idea what I will be reading and looking at. Also the quote was just fabulous and was a really good ending to your review.

<br>I liked this scoop a lot because you mentioned where people who are interested in this field can take classes on photography. I also like how you mentioned that it is not as easy as it seems, and nothing really is. You mentioned the challenges with this field, but overall explained how in the end it is worth it when you get that one picture that is pretty much perfect. I also liked how to get an image it takes a lot of teamwork with everyone that is involved in the shoot. I also liked how all your scoops had black and white pictures attached to them.

I found this scoop very informative and helpful to anyone who wants to be a professional photographer. I also like how you mentioned that this is no easy job. Its not just taking pictures. I like how you inform people that photography is no easy job to get in to it takes patience, determination and being a people person. What I really enjoyed about your scoop is that you informed people on where to take a course on photography. I also like how you said that even though it takes a lot of work, in the end the effort you put into photography really pays off. Overall I found this scoop very entertaining and informative.

Arielle Brutus's insight:


This interview was a good source for my topic question because reading an interview about a photographer helps me get into the mindset of being a photographer and seeing how he does his work from his point of view and the about of time he spends editing and such. Weil, Harry J. quotes that he rarely redirects his images, he is interested in the world as it it. To me this shows how in his works he is more interested in a vague natural or unexpected beauty, not some picture he spends hours finding the right position to take a picture of. The interview also mentions how he doesn't think when he takes pictures and it's spontaneous. In his past he mostly worked for magazines but he had to think about what the parameters for the assignment were, since it was too demanding and

his pictures in his mind seemed controlled he decided to stop.
