Quelques pistes pour prendre un portrait dans des conditions difficiles Il y a quelques temps, je vous parlais des golden hours, ces deux moments dans la journée où la lumière est la plus belle. C’est surtout vrai pour les paysages, mais une mauvaise lumière peut aussi gâcher un portrait : ombres trop présentes et trop dures, arrière plan trop lumineux, etc. Cependant, en voyage, on a parfois envie de prendre des photos à n’importe quelle heure, on ne choisit pas quand va se produire une super rencontre. Je vais donc essayer de vous donner quelques idées pour mettre toutes les chances de votre côté à la prise de vue. Pour cela, l’article d’aujourd’hui va se dérouler autour de « la fontaine aux morts », un charmant lavoir à côté de chez mes parents (oui, je suis carrément partie en week-end afin de trouver le lieu idéal pour aborder ce sujet !). Nous sommes début juin, il n’y a pratiquement pas de nuages, et il est midi : on ne peut pas franchement dire que les conditions soient optimales ! Deuxième solution, le mettre à l’ombre : zone 2. - These Japanese Barcodes Are So Kawaii! | Present in every product packaging that we use today, barcodes have become universal with their use in automating supermarket checkout systems. Recently, innovations in barcode technology have made it possible to do more than tagging products. They can also be used to encode music, images, URLs and emails. Barcodes encode data by varying the widths and spacing of parallel lines. But not in Japan, the land of kawaii. The concept of kawaii (roughly translates as “cute”) is prevalent across Japanese culture and can be seen in almost every aspect of the Japanese life. And barcodes are no exceptions. Japanese group Design Barcode has been creating custom barcodes since 2005. The result? Check out some of the designs of Design Barcode below. For more design barcodes, check out their Japanese website here or their English website here. Do barcodes need a redesign?

Sony 20mm f2.8 (APS-C E Mount) Who doesn’t like pancake lenses? They’re small, perform well, and often are stuck to our cameras because of their portability. So when Sony created the 20mm f2.8, we just had to get it onto a camera for a try. Pancake lenses often trade performance for size, and the 20mm f2.8 isn’t an exception. It ranks on the bottom of the company’s prime offerings, but also is still better than their zoom lenses when it comes to image quality. But that’s not why you’ll want to keep it on your camera. Pros and Cons Pros – Itty bitty size makes most E mount Alpha cameras feel like a point and shoot – Fast focusing – Really good color rendition – Pretty darned good sharpness for a pancake, but could be better Cons – A bit more pricey than I’d like it to be Gear Used We tested the 20mm f2.8 with the Sony NEX 6. Tech Specs Ergonomics Sony’s 20mm f2.8 is a very plain Jane and perhaps the company’s most minimalist offering. There are no controls on the lens.

Leçon de street photography par Rui Palha Rui Palha est un photographe portugais. Bien que se considérant amateur, il a inspiré de nombreux photographes, dont Jianwei Yang. Ses photos, prises la plupart du temps à Lisbonne, capturent à merveille l’atmosphère et le ressenti des passants qui croisent son objectif. Photo: Rui Palha A l’occasion de la rédaction de cet article, Rui Palha a accepté de répondre à quelques unes de nos questions. Pourquoi vous êtes-vous orienté vers street photography ? Pourquoi travaillez-vous en Noir et Blanc? Ted Grant a écrit, et je suis d’accord avec lui : « Si vous utilisez de la couleur, vous montrez la couleur de l’objet, si vous utilisez du Noir et Blanc, vous montrez la couleur de l’âme ». Y-a-t-il un message particulier que vous souhaitez transmettre à travers vos photographies? J’essaie de raconter des histoires à travers mes photos, je m’efforce de dire aux autres ce que je vois tous les jours lors de mes promenades. Pouvez-vous nous dire quel équipement vous utilisez pour vos projets?

You just sit and keep on looking through your photos on the computer screen trying to take a closer look at your full-size pictures.

Sony 24mm f1.8 (Sony NEX E Mount) As the current creme-de-la-creme of Sony’s NEX lenses, the 24mm f1.8 renders a near 35mm field of view on the 1.5x Crop APS-C sensor inside of their NEX cameras. When the NEX 7 came in for review, we nearly had it constantly mated to the camera. Plus, when the F3 was announced, the lens spent its fair amount of time on the camera. When I say we, I mean that I and a little more than half of the staff took it for a run. And we essentially all thought nearly the same thing. Tech Specs Information taken from the B&H Photo listing of the lens Ergonomics The lens isn’t really that large, and indeed the lens hood does make it seem larger than it really is. That’s really all there is to this lens. Autofocus This lens never ceased to amaze me. In fact, Sony has touted the NEX 7 and the lens as a Leica killer. A good thing to know is that the lens is also super silent to focus and one cannot feel the internal mechanisms moving at all. Not that we’d ask you to. Image Quality Sharpness Quirks Conclusions
