MARTIN IVNING “ADOBE PHOTOSHOP CS5 FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS”

I studied and learned photoshop, like most photographers – through separate video tutorials and articles, extracts from forums and books. A huge impetus was given to me by Dan Margulis’s book, which I’m still going to write about, but, unfortunately, it doesn’t fully reveal many of the Photoshop tools, especially the masks, as well as the various filters that I had to meet from additional sources.
This method of learning, of course, leads to gaps in the general understanding of Photoshop. Therefore, I began to look for a reference book that would fill these gaps, having built the overall picture of the work with the program. And she found it in the person of Martin Ewning’s book “Adobe Photoshop CS5 for Photographers”.
The book is a complete and competent tutorial on Photoshop, which today is not enough – count them by fingers. Unlike the “for dummies” manuals, it does not provide a specific processing sequence for a particular case, but tells about tools and methods in general, that it will allow the smart processor to decide which of these tools to use.
A DVD is attached to the book, which also contains several chapters from the textbook and additional materials. Continue reading

9 FAMOUS PHOTOGRAPHS WHERE YOU NEED TO LEARN

Do you rarely come across good portrait photos, or have no idea which ones are good? You have already understood that photographic vision is that skill that no one can teach you?
Without seeing good photos, it’s impossible to learn how to take good photos yourself. For the short history of the existence of digital photography, authors have appeared a lot, and to highlight the best among them is a real problem. That is why you need to learn from the best of the best. It can be both classics of photography, and well-known modern photographers. Below we will get acquainted with the 9th of them (approx. – division by genre is conditional. Many of the authors below are filmed in various genres).

Antanas Sutkus is one of the best representatives of the Baltic school of artistic photography. Founder of the Lithuanian Photo Art Union, a classic of Soviet photography. Sutkus’s works are in the collections of the world’s most important libraries and museums. In the entire history of the photographer’s work more than 120 solo exhibitions have been organized.

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY IN RUSSIAN. OLGA FILONOVA

This site has already had a series of articles about the experience of foreign wedding photographers, but, of course, these interviews do not fully describe the photographer from the post-Soviet space. That is why in the new interview cycle we will talk with those who are closer to us – with Russian wedding photographers, and find out how they achieved success.
I open this cycle by publishing interviews with a wonderful, friendly and open-to-talk person – professional photographer Olga Filonova.
It all started with an accident – instead of a broken soap box, I was loaned to a friend’s wedding, I liked a couple of pictures from me more than from a hired pro – and then I thought about purchasing such a camera for myself. Honestly, I took flowers and cats for about six months, until a friend (wedding photographer) suggested I take off the wedding. Continue reading
