The Photographers Society PHOTOGRAPHER FOCUS · Luca Adamo If you ask me for it, I will say that Luca Adamo makes mainly street photography. But it is not easy to define in a univocal way which can be understood as such: it is not even possible to find among photographers who love the genre even an uniform idea about the elements or traits that can define it. For some, it is as simple as picking up the camera, go out and find moments; these everyday situations in which people who pass beside us are usually involved. It would treat then a picture of the everyday, often close to the portrait, even the reportage, in which the person is the axis -conscious or unconscious— without which the capture has no sense. Others understand street photography as an urban landscaping that considers the city as the environment where to capture the ‘views’ that can be watched with the same eyes with which we would admire the picture of a valley or the countryside.

Design Arts Daily What are some of your favorite things about living and working in Richmond, VA? I was born in South Carolina and have since lived in Germany, Texas, North Carolina, Nebraska, South Korea, Hawaii, Colorado, Florida, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Virginia. Some of my favorite things about Richmond are the community of artists that I've shared a studio with (Ally Hodges, Josh George, Sterling Hundley, Aaron Riley, Edward Kinsella, Andrew R. Wright, Leslie Herman) and that the low cost of living allows me to work less and enjoy my life outside of the studio. What makes an outstanding image? (part 1) Apples. Nikon D800E, Zeiss ZF.2 2/100 Makro-Planar Of the 400 or so posts I’ve published up to this point, I recently realized that the one enormously gaping hole I haven’t yet covered deals with the one of the major fundamentals: how do you actually determine if an image ‘works’ or not?

HMAb — HeatherMortonArt buyer One of my favourite things about this show is that it includes so much variety. Subject matter, technique and of course style- the show is a lovely mixture. Plus, it represents photographers in very different places in their careers. Established shooters like Lee Towndrow are showing fantastic work that warrants more attention. But it’s also thrilling to be include new shooters like Rodrigo Daguerre.

Go Dutch to make a better photograph - home - A Better Photograph In making photographs, our normal inclination is to make the horizon level. And in fact, many cameras now a menu item that allows the display of a built-in level to assist with that. But sometimes, skewing the horizon line in the photograph can add impact to an image. In cinematography, Dutch angle means tilting the camera to create a sense of exoticness or unease. It's a technique that has been used often in film, and photographers use the technique as well. Beyond the pyschological effects it can engender, I like to use it to add more of a graphic quality to the composition, or make an image seem more candid.
