HOW TO PHOTOGRAPHY CHILDREN?

And again we will return to this issue, since it is always relevant. This article has collected some tips on child photography. They are described below in two parts: “Camera Setup” and “Shooting”. Meet, adopt and remember that nothing in the photo is a dogma.
Start by switching the camera to aperture priority mode. This will allow you to have some creative control over the depth of field, which can be very important for portraits. If your camera does not have such a mode, it may have a “portrait” mode, which is worth a try to get nice fuzzy backgrounds.
Set your aperture to f / 5.6 to get started. This will throw the background out of focus (unless the children stand directly next to the wall), however, it will give you enough depth of field to keep the models’ faces in focus. Continue reading

JOSEF THE TRUNK: RARE INTERVIEW WITH A PHOTOGRAPH, PHOTOS, SHORT BIOGRAPHY

Joseph Koudelka is a wonderful person and photographer. He has written a lot of biographical references about him, but those who talked with him personally speak best of him. Therefore, instead of a biography, I am pleased to present you a translation of an interview with a photographer taken by Tim Nokes.
“… Over the past fifty years, Josef Koudelka has shot hundreds of wonderful photos. In a rare interview with a photographer, I was able to question Koudelka about his exciting career and why Koudelka was the only person who could openly criticize Henri Cartier-Bresson.

His works reveal the beauty of abstract forms and the plasticity of threatening shadows in desert landscapes, in which people are deprived of the right to vote. Continue reading

BILL GEKAS. ART PORTRAIT

Today I want to introduce you to the photo artist from Australia, Bill Gekas and his works. Bill works in the genre of art portrait, and, along with photos, will share some of the secrets of his skill. Bill’s photos and information about him can be viewed on the official website of the author.
Portrait photography has always been your main focus? If not, why are you paying so much attention to her today?
Portrait has become my main genre since 2005, since I decided to buy a camera with a digital matrix to replace the film camera. Up to a certain point I shot a little of everything, but once I was very inspired by the works of famous masters of portrait photography. I realized that the people in these photos, though unfamiliar to me, are very dear to me. Having absorbed the surrealism of these works, I realized that I would shoot portraits with an artistic approach, combining in them elements of the historical heritage, beautiful light and the special emotions of people being photographed.
Your new works have a very peculiar style. I will not refer to other photographers, but rather I will ask, how do you define it yourself? Continue reading
