CIRCLE RECTANGLE. The Arnold Newman Archive - Welcome To The Arnold Newman Archive. Brian Lanker Photography. Dorothea Lange. Dorothea Lange (May 26, 1895 – October 11, 1965) was an influential American documentary photographer and photojournalist, best known for her Depression-era work for the Farm Security Administration (FSA).

Dorothea Lange

Lange's photographs humanized the consequences of the Great Depression and influenced the development of documentary photography. Early life[edit] Born of second generation German immigrants on May 26, 1895, at 1041 Bloomfield Street, Hoboken, New Jersey,[1][2] Dorothea Lange was named Dorothea Margaretta Nutzhorn at birth. She dropped her middle name and assumed her mother's maiden name after her father abandoned the family when she was 12 years old, one of two traumatic incidents early in her life.

The other was her contraction of polio at age seven which left her with a weakened right leg and a permanent limp.[1][2] "It formed me, guided me, instructed me, helped me and humiliated me," Lange once said of her altered gait.

Julien Mauve - Photography Project - Back To Childhood

Des jouets plastifiées, estampillés Fisher-Price ou Playskool, succès commerciaux écoulés à des milliers d'exemplaires et symboles du formatage de notre enfance occidentale. Mis en scène dans des situations grotesques qui rapellent l'insouciance et la distraction, ce projet est un dernier hommage rendu aux jouets de ma jeunesse. Avant de les renvoyer dans le grenier d'où ils ont été exhumés par hasard quelques mois plus tôt.. A few months ago, I was hanging around in my grandparent's attic. Iceland: 12 Tips for Capturing Great Waterfall Images – Digital Mastery: The home of everything Ben.

Iceland: 12 Tips for Capturing Great Waterfall Images – Digital Mastery: The home of everything Ben

Focus on Nature (the organizers) asked me to write a blog post for them about the upcoming trip. Instead of just saying how great it’s going to be (how can it not be? It’s Iceland!) , I decided to give a little sneak peak at what folks might learn there. I’ve been to Iceland several times and the reason I keep returning is that it truly is one of the most magical places I’ve ever seen. Shooting Waterfalls In Iceland, there’s one thing you simply can’t avoid seeing a lot of: waterfalls.

Single capture of a waterfall. How to Visualize Photography Lighting Setups in Blender. Not too long ago I finally got around to picking up a decent manual flash for exploring lighting and speedlight techniques.

How to Visualize Photography Lighting Setups in Blender

I picked up a Yongnuo YN-560 Speedlight Flash for Canon and Nikon, and my friend Sean was kind enough to send me his old radio triggers to play with. I was mostly all set to start exploring the world of off-camera lighting… I say mostly because though I had a rough understanding of how I wanted to use the light, I was not well versed on what could be done with it. So I spent a bit of time on the Flickr Strobist Group, and read through all of the Lighting courses on the Strobist site. There is an absolute wealth of information on the site, and I cannot recommend it enough. Having a reference for how the contribution of different types of light will affect the final outcome is very handy for me. This is nice, but what if I wanted to visualize the effect multiple lights will have all simultaneously? I focused first on a softbox. 24″ softbox 45° cam left, up 30° Moi.

Making the Most of Long Exposure Handhelds - Introduction

Table of Contents Recently, a member over in the DPReview Pentax SLR Forum was expressing his frustration with vibration control. That's when it occurred to me: there are no tutorials out there that really give an in-depth explanation as to how to improve your photography technique for those inevitably blurry long-exposures. Granted, he was referring to 1/8s shutter speeds on a medium telephoto (70-200 in 35mm format), however I have had success at 1/4s with my 55-300 (80-450 in 35mm format) at the long end (yes, with Shake Reduction enabled). I am by no measures a "pro," but I understand my fundamentals very well, and this specific set has been drilled into my head so many times that it is now second-nature.
