Road Trip with her Son Voici Justin Kurland : une photographe américaine qui a décidé lorsque son fils avait 3 mois de partir en road-trip et de l’emmener avec elle jusqu’à ses 5 ans. Cette expérience, l’artiste en a fait part dans le livre collaboratif « How we do both : Art and Motherhood » contenant des images très touchantes. Outline blog It's Guest Blog Wednesday featuring Regina Pagles! Hi! My name is Regina Pagles and I am a portrait photographer residing in the rural community of Springdale, Utah (Pop. 450), just outside of Zion National Park. I have a small studio where I have been taking portraits of friends and family since I discovered studio lighting in 2010. I have combined the techniques learned from my biggest inspirations, Peter Hurley (expression), Sue Bryce (posing), Don Giannatti (lighting) and Scott Kelby (post processing) to develop and hone my own style. In the spirit of â˜paying it forward,' I would like to share with you what I have learned and the techniques I use, in honor of those that have inspired me and who have offered their knowledge so graciously. I will take you through my post processing workflow, using a recent image of one of my favorite subjects, model Yolanda Damon Harris. Straight out of the camera, you can see the image doesn’t look too good… I begin by making initial adjustments in Lightroom and the image starts to improve. Next in LR:

Jared Platt Blog — Jared Platt's Photography Blog The Jaw-Dropping Photography of Storm Chaser Mike Hollingshead You might not come out on top if you weigh the pros and cons of storm chasing, but there are definitely pros beyond feeling like a bada** and a deep fulfillment of your twin passions for meteorology and spiking your adrenaline. If you want proof of that, just check out the awe-inspiring photography of storm chaser Mike Hollingshead. If the name Mike Hollingshead sounds familiar, that’s good, it means you’ve been reading PetaPixel for a little while. But if that’s the only photo from his storm chasing portfolio that you’ve come across, then you’re in for a real treat. Hollingshead began storm chasing after his first real chase put him right in the path of a tornado in Iowa. Speaking to Wired, Hollingshead does admit that it’s not all glory: I’ve driven eight hours only to get out there and have nothing happen. Plus, in recent years, he’s had to deal with a huge spike in the number of storm chasers on the road ever since Discovery’s Storm Chasers popularized the profession. (via Wired)

Toy Stories | gabriele galimberti If Riverboom’s photographer Gabriele Galimberti had happened to shoot me, aged 6 and surrounded by my favorite toys, he would have seen the following: plastic medieval weaponry; assorted Lego (Space, Castle and Pirate); an inflatable Tyrannosaurus rex (punctured slowly into extinction); a Superman action figure (I lost it and hyperventilated with grief); a pair of cuddly rabbits (Sally and Billy); toy cars; a tiny guitar; a plane you launched with an elastic catapult; a replica pistol I thought my mum didn’t know about. Everyone remembers their childhood toys. The fact that I can recall how most of mine tasted better than I can remember the names of my primary school teachers says everything you need to know about the universe kids inhabit. But how they play can reveal a lot. Yet even children worlds apart share similarities when it comes to the function their toys serve. Ultimately, the toys on display reveal the hopes and ambitions of the people who bought them in the first place.

Bellocq: Storyville Portraits (1912) 18+ - Mai Manó Ház John Ernest Joseph Bellocq fotográfust (1873-1949) New Orleans vöröslámpás negyedében készített képei tették ismertté. A Storyville-nek nevezett városrész – egészen az 1917-es bezárásáig – Amerika legnagyobb prostitúciós negyede volt. Bellocq prostituáltakról készített képei komolyak és együttérzőek voltak, ugyanakkor sokat elárultak a modellek belső énjéről is. Az effajta ábrázolásnak Amerikában nem nagyon volt hagyománya, témaválasztásának okára soha nem derült fény. Vigyázat, felnőtt tartalom! Fotó: E. Susan Sontag a könyv előszavában rámutat a fotókon szereplő nők szépségére és nyílt jelenlétére, akik olyan meghitt környezetben örökítődtek meg, amely egyszerre beszél az érzékiségről és az otthonos fesztelenségről, valamint letűnt világuk kézzelfoghatóságáról.
