UNPREDICTABLE DROP IN THE PHOTOS OF VLADIMIR NEFEDOV

Truly wonderful pictures of drops Vladimir Nefedov. Infinitely different forms and images in cosmic natural etudes. Plunging into the “Universe of a drop” of the author, for a moment you do not even believe that such a thing can be captured with the camera. How does a photographer manage this?

HOW TO BECOME A PHOTO REPORTER?

Every week I receive dozens of letters from people from all over the world. My readers are asking how to become a photo reporter. This is a very difficult question, and there is no definite answer to it. There is only one universal way to become a photojournalist – to act here and now.

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
