With the arrival of the digital equipment (Internet, Cameras, Processing Software and more) Photography seems to be expanding as a subject and more people can afford it. With HDR photography (High Dynamic Range) suddenly a lot more people are able to make amazing stuff.
Jean-Michel Berts still uses film, per my understanding from his site he uses a technique similar to that of Ansel Adams which is the technique prior to HDR but with a similar concept. Serge Ramelli’s photography is great too and he definitely uses HDR.
Now I have been following the site of Martin Soler’s Photo Blog as well which I find interesting too (though nothing like Trey Ratcliff’s site at http://www.stuckincustoms.com) and it’s great to see the new photographers coming up.
I guess there’s an artist in every one of us.
A few weeks ago I blogged about the photos from Serge of Paris and other areas. He recently redid his site and the result is quite nice, all done in WordPress (yes I did have a word to say in that).
His new site looks like this, the landing page is his blog which is great as it keeps the site alive and human.
I suggest you check it out here.
One of the shots is an amazing black and white shot of the Musee d’Orsay in Paris. The sky is pretty nice and the museum too, but the most amazing in this shot is the sharpness and light effects on the rhinoceros. It is not just the contrast of the photo but the contrast of a rhino overlooking Paris.
click on the link on the site or here: http://www.photoserge.com sit back and enjoy.
I recently showed my blog around and showed some of the amazing photography of JM Berts to friends. I am still startled by the photos he takes and the quality of the shots.
A friend of mine showed me some of his photography of Paris (and other places). Some of it is done using a technology called HDR (High Dynamic Range imaging) it’s pretty amazing. I invite you to check out his site (www.photoserge.com) and his blog (there are two one is http://sergeramelli.blogspot.com/ and http://photoserge.com/blog) for some of the shots.
He said he is doing an expo soon and that you can buy photos from him, unfortunately he doesn’t have an online store yet but that is coming soon.
Well Paris is a photogenic city that is for sure… enjoy [,-]
I just noticed that the links to Jean Michel Berts’ blog are down for some reason.
He has another site with a great series of slideshows of his work which you can check out here:
I got some of the Paris photos which are posted here:
Eiffel Tower black and white and amazing light show.
Is this Pont Neuf? Well it’s an amazing Bridge in Paris.
I’ve posted quite a lot about Dolk the Norwegian Stencil Graffiti artist. It started when a friend of mine spotted some of his stencils and showed me the pictures. I posted those and found more stencils and took pictures of those and posted them too.
What has become my best resource for Dolk Stencil Graffiti news is http://www.thegiant.org/wiki/index.php/Dolk
It’s got pictures, stories, interviews and anecdotes.
There is a “Making of” his infamous Che Guevarra stencil (which I also found) that I thought was great.
Check it out here:
This two-color image, an “instant classic” as per Pictures on Walls and “Banksy-heavy” as per thethugsdontwork, features a cigar-smoking Che Guevara proudly pointing to his t-shirt, emblazoned with artist Jim Fitzpatrick’s rendering of Alberto Korda’s (in)famous, much pirated 1960 image of… Che Guevara.
And here is the stencil as it looks on a graffiti covered wall:
Note that the picture is wider than the post so click on it to get the whole thing.
I’ve decided to post on every new photo that JM Berts releases. They are pretty cool.
It’s funny to think that this is the same New York that’s covered in graffiti.
Well enjoy the photo and check out his site for more photos they’re cool.
I got these pictures on an email of British signs. I thought they are just too funny to be kept only on email.
And probably someone else has posted them on their blogs too, but it’s just too cool. Who has the got the humor to make a sign like that and the guts to put it up.
And despite the otherwise serious facade of the British, stuff like this is just so unexpected.
Ah how I love these Brits.
Humor is a great thing – how much farther it goes to deliver an otherwise boring message. It’s like those Dolk stencils. One can deliver a message in a placid tone and probably nobody sees it or give it with a touch of humor and it goes a long way and gets remembered.
Cheers all of you.
