Summer Over the City The photographer George Steinmetz, whom Lauren Collins Profiled in the magazine in 2010, has shot his iconic aerial photographs from the skies over more than seventy countries, including China, Israel, and Libya. For the past year, however, Steinmetz, who lives in suburban New Jersey, has remained closer to home, trading his paraglider for a helicopter to explore New York City and its surroundings. As winter turned to summer, Steinmetz’s desolate, snow-covered scenes–the Coney Island carousel, a lot filled with Richard Serra sculptures–became vibrant landscapes replete with picnickers, athletes, and High Line promenaders. The photographs of familiar places in the city are mesmerizing in their detail: a ballet dancer in Central Park, a tennis player mid-leap, the reactions of sunbathers at Chelsea Piers.

Visitors were able to walk two miles over the thick ice of Lake Superior to see the ice formations that run up the coastline. Erin Brethauer, a photographer living in North Carolina, visited the sea caves. Click here to view a slide show of her photographs.

Mrs. Deane : nothing is too amazing to be true non-digitally manip­u­lated hand print © Yaseen Al-Obeidy The Kuwait Weeks were born out of a con­ver­sa­tion I had with Kuwaiti pho­tog­ra­pher Mohammed Alk­ouh, who is cur­rently hav­ing a solo show at CAP Kuwait, which includes a num­ber of his recent stu­dio por­traits. We talked about his encoun­ters in the tra­di­tional por­trait stu­dios, which gave him the love for the hand-colored image, and how for him those pho­tographs, like real life instances of Oscar Wilde’s pic­tures of Dorian Gray, con­tained the pres­ence and the youth of a fam­ily mem­ber now in advanced age or even deceased. And how the vin­tage image has this mys­te­ri­ous time-warp qual­ity that we can­not shake off or stop being fas­ci­nated by — an addic­tion mer­ci­less tapped into and catered to by sev­eral online plat­forms, numer­ous photo books, col­lec­tions, some gal­leries, eBay sell­ers and auctioneers.

Roger Ballen In the fall of 2005, Phaidon press produced its second book by the artist, entitled 'Shadow Chamber'.[2] The book focuses on interactions between people, animals, and/or objects. Ballen’s recent work enters into a new realm of photography — the images are painterly and sculptural in ways not immediately associated with photographs.[3] Through collaboration on some of Die Antwoord's music videos, which have received more than 30 million hits on YouTube, Ballen's paintings and sculpture have gained broader exposure globally.[4][5] Yolandi Visser said about him: "Mr.

Tags: Finland trackback The invincible Kinnunen Brothers 2014 Finland Juuso Westerlund (b .1975, Finland ) studied photography in the University of Art and Design Helsinki and Turku Arts Academy. Liz Kuball › Blog I know, I know, you’re up to your ears in Kickstarter emails from photographers, and I feel you, I really do. But this one is different. My little sister, Cara, is part of a group called the New Craft Artists in Action (NCAA), based in Boston. Creamy Light – Adding Creamy Brightness in Photoshop {Plus a FREE Action!} | Polished Picture Ever since I read Tony Kuyper’s wonderful in-depth tutorials on luminosity masks, I’ve been intrigued by the concept. Luminosity masks in Photoshop allow you to target a specific tonal range for adjustments – just the highlights or just the shadows, for instance (or any tonal range for that matter). Click around his site and blog, and look at the rollovers of his landscapes! It’s so amazing what you can do with these masks! Anyways, I just wanted to give you a little history if you are interested in further reading like my nerdy-self is. :) My free Kick it Up action/tutorial uses a luminosity mask to apply the adjustment to just the shadows while leaving the highlights alone.
