ive seen that distinction a lot lately. yo never see a definition, but if you see the pictures, you see more or less a common pattern. its not that they are contemporary because they are active in a certain time frame, but because of their themes and overall look.
pic related looks contemporary. but is it? alec soth is like the epitome of contemporary, but is he?
how do you draw the line, where do you separate the classics (?) of the contemporary?
>>2839034 I'd assume they use the term "contemporary" to mean "now", because in the art world "modern" and "modernism" already have specific meanings and relate to periods other than right now, i.e. contemporary.
Composition is ridiculously overemphasized and a lot of beginners treat it like some magic formula that will make their pictures better.
Find interesting subjects or scenes. That should be your main emphasis. Don't put them in the center unless it looks better in the center. Strong diagonals are cool, wide angles help with that. Use layers to create interest (foreground, middle ground, background). Compose with your feet and not your lens or arms. Learn how perspective works and how to see it.
Above all, don't treat composition like the most important... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Is there anyone who could zoom/edit this photo to see what the license plate numbers are? Simply zooming on it is not enough to clearly see the numbers but maybe someone who's good at editing could make them out?
Hey have any of you ever built a large format camera? I've built a monorail 4x5 camera, and I can't see anything in the back of the camera, even when the shutter is held open. Maybe it's because I bought a really cheap ground glass? Anyone have any experience with large format cameras?
>>2837665 I thought the same, I mean the are amazing photos, RAW emotion... but i just feltl like when i did it, i was invading their personal space, you know? and people maybe looking at me and thinking, "why the fuck is he taking photos right now!?, but i know in the end, years from now, they will be glad they told me to take those photos.. idk... like i said its my first ever funeral PERIOD, not just shooting, but being present at a funeral period... it was hard
when will you come to terms with the fact that you are not miroslav tichy?
> MIROSLAV TICHY HAS BECOME FAMOUS in spite of his need for privacy. Born in 1926 in what is now the Czech Republic, Tichy studied painting at the Academy of Art in Prague until the Communist takeover in April 1945. Arrested for being “odd,” therefor subversive, Tichy spent many years in jails and prisons, until he was released in the 1970s. Upon his release, he wandered his small town in rags, pursuing his occupation as an artist photographing the female form in the streets. He made his cameras from tin cans, childrens spectacle lens and other junk he found on the street. He would return home each day to make prints on equally primitive equipment, making only one print from the negative he selected. He stole intimate glimpses of his subjects through windows and the fences of swimming pools as well as in the streets, sometimes finding himself in trouble with the police.
