PHOTOGRAPHY More We share a vision; to create, innovate and explore the world. That bridges the gap between Fine Art and Technology. Our Mission is to promote the Meamorphism art movement into educational communities. Cinematic portrait photography by David Olkarny David Olkarny was born on December 17, 1987 in Brussels. He has been into various forms of arts and creative outlets ever since he can remember. By the age of 18 his true passion was revealed to him… the cinema. It allowed him to better grasp concepts such as space and color, and it allowed him to stage his own view of the world. In June 2011, David got his degree in cinematography and was practicing photography intensively, and even obsessively. David is particularly into cinematic outdoor portraits.
How To Put Together A Lifestyle Photo Shoot: Part II When it comes to putting together a photo shoot, if there is anything that I’ve learned (and continue to learn), is that the time spent working out the smallest details will save you from at best a tremendous amount of work after the fact, and at worst, the horror of having to scrap the shoot entirely. That’s why when you’re putting together a photo shoot, no detail should be overlooked, least of all the talent that you choose to work with. In the last section, we covered the importance of concept development and creating a mood board. Both, in my opinion, are of vast importance to creating and pulling off a great photo shoot.

Powerful Portraits of Brave People Revealing Their Insecurities The What I Be Project by photographer Steve Rosenfield is an intriguing study into the human condition. The participants in Steve’s projects bare their souls writing their biggest insecurities on their bodies with markers and then letting Steve photograph them. Their messages tell of fears, self-doubts, and labels for society that stop most of us from living happier lives, but it also shows us the amazing bravery of the participants to share their innermost fears with the world. How many of us have the bravery to admit we were molested, feel ugly, think we are too thin or too fat, and to do it in such a daring public way? The images help us open up to our own inner fears and realize most of the time the worst part of the fear is our own self-loathing, not the real reactions of society.
