Why is this aesthetic so difficult to create with digital? Why are manufacturers so focused on creating another shitty gimmick to cram into their cameras when they should be focusing on refining the cameras ability to render light and color?
I wanted to share some things that I thought might be helpful or interesting for anyone who wants to improve or go out and shoot regarding photography. I was hoping that I might be able to find something new as well to help get me to go out to shoot more. I'll be posting what info I have for now, but most of it will be for the New York City area, but please feel free to share if you have info regarding your city/country.
This assignment references the influential color photography work of Magnum photojournalist, Martin Parr. Your primary goal is to create a series of photographs that are connected thematically, through color relationships and subject matter. Humorous juxtapositions of subject content are encouraged. Your photos will be arranged as a group of five related photographic images.
Look for subjects with bright, vivid and saturated color. Complimentary color relationships work well. Fragmentation and extreme close-ups of your subject work well for this assignment. Compose your subject by cropping your images at unusal angles. Each photograph must be shot at a different location and should reflect a different subject or theme. All images should be composed carefully as you are shooting—no post production cropping allowed.
/p/, how do I get over crippling awkwardness, fear, and anxiety while shooting street photography? I was out today and despite using a stealthy black point and shoot people still glared at me for taking photos of them. Fuck, I'm still shaking.
Read the sticky first!
Post anything gear related, cameras, lenses, bags, tripods, other fashion accessories (clothing, fancy straps, Leica) etc...
Post your question here, instead of starting a new thread about which lens to buy or what are the best beginner cameras.
