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. Luca’s approach to the photographed reality in the urban environment is fully emotional: in his photography he treasures unique everyday fragments. And paradoxically, although the human figure is broadly absent from his shots there is in them a huge dose of humanity.

The party will be April 12th so you have plenty of time to snap those photos and create a post. Every time I take a photo I feel like I learn something. That’s what these parties are all about.

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.

Animated GIFs are making a comeback, and Echograph, a new iPad app, is taking them to the next level. Remember how the newspaper photos in the Harry Potter movies came alive? Here’s how it works: You shoot a video, select a five-second clip, and choose one still as the main frame. Echograph is the creation of Nick Alt, founder and CEO of Clear Media, a Southern California-based 10-person creative agency that does work for Mattel, Chik-Fil-A, and Macy’s while also developing their own products. Alt’s team actively uses a variety of photo-sharing services like Facebook and Instagram, but wanted something more. Echograph grew out of his interest in Lomography and other old-school photo techniques that encouraged shutterbugs to choose images carefully, with a story in mind, rather than shooting mindlessly.
