My granddad passed away on the 3rd of October 2012. He lived to a ripe old age of 94. This ending is a tribute to him and my 91-year old grandmother.
I was recently loaned a Fuji X-Pro1 with a 35mm f1.4 lens (equivalent to 50mm field of view) for a week to try out.
Looking at a contact sheet is, I find, like reconstructing your own human path. It’s a beautiful moment. It’s perhaps even more beautiful – more enjoyable – than taking the picture.
Saul Leiter: Early Color features 100 colour photographs that Leiter took mostly in the 1950s. I cannot think of many street photographers from the 1950s to 1970s who worked well in colour.
After I did the write up on the Vivian Maier: Street Photographer book, I was thinking about why there were relatively few well-known women photographers compared to men photographers.
My main intention for borrowing the OM-D was simply to have some fun with it and see how it handled as a walkabout camera. I have a few impressions of the camera but these have to be taken with a pinch of salt because I only used the camera for a short time.
Vivian Maier worked as a professional nanny all her working life. After picking up photography sometime in the late 1940s, she started photographing the world around her during her leisure time. In her lifetime, she amassed a body of work comprising of over 100,000 negatives as well as hundreds of rolls of undeveloped film.
I dropped by the Leica Store @ Raffles Hotel Arcade (Singapore) today to check out the Magic Moments Photo Exhibition that has been on since the 22nd of March.
Black & White has been released as a limited edition of 2,000 sets and comes with a certificate hand-signed and numbered by Davidson himself (included in Volume 1 of the set).
This review of Outside Inside : Volume III of Bruce Davidson’s massive box set that covers over 50 years of his photography work released by Steidl comes a few months after I had reviewed Volume I & II.
This past week, I have been spending some time printing out some of my photographs on my favorite paper ‘Gross Baryta Warmtone’ by Harman Hahnemühle.
In the 10 plus years that I have been involved in photography, I have read and owned only 1 book that contained the technical bit of photography (e.g. Exposure, ISO, Lenses, etc).
One of my ongoing personal projects is named ZOO. The project is simply doing Street Photography within the confines of a Zoo. It started off when I visited Arashiyama Zoo in Hokkaido
I like traveling and one of the things I enjoy doing when I travel is to wander around (sometimes aimlessly) and shoot whatever catches my eyes. During my visit to Japan about 2 months ago, I used the Fuji X10 as my walkabout camera.
“Omni Polis” by Shogo Yamada and “Manila” by Jun Abe are the latest offerings by Osaka-based publishing company Vacuum Press. From what I gather, Vacuum Press is owned and run by a collective of 4 photographers (Shunji Dodo, Jun Abe, Shogo Yamada, and Yasuko Noguchi) who set up the company to publish their own work.
