Here is some of my most recent work from Studio lighting last quarter, and Fashion Photography and Advanced Digital Imaging this Quarter.
The Portland Grid Project began in 1996, with a group of photographers working to systematically document their city. Splitting the map into a grid with 1.5 mile squares, the photographers spent a month on each square. The range of techniques created not just an intimate portrait of Portland, but of the way each photographer sees their city as well.
I think this could be a cool extension of Mallory’s project. After seeing the places she found, it could be fun to do an Atlanta round. Anyone interested?
Martin Parr, who spoke in Atlanta not too long ago, wrote up a post explaining some of the photographic clichés he sees the most.
In case you were thinking about shooting any of these, it might be worth a read. He doesn’t criticize using these subjects, but instead gently reminds you that it’s been done before, so you better make it worth it.
As you may or may not know, your dear classmates, Colleen and myself, are studying at the Lacoste campus this quarter! Studying at other campuses is a must! Not only do you learn about other cultures, but you get to experience so many new things, as well as having the opportunity to study with students from the other SCAD campuses! We’ve only had class for a week, and we’ve already travelled to so many different places surrounding Lacoste! Here are some pictures from our adventures! The gallery includes images from both of us. We hope you enjoy!
Stay posted for more updates!
Our friends in this quarter’s seminar class are having their exhibition show Friday, September 2, 2011 at Young Blood Gallery and Boutique from 5-8 pm. Go out and enjoy an evening of wonderful work by some amazing photographers. Drinks and snacks included!!!
After 20 years, the digital camera makers are finally giving the world what it really wants: spectacular, professional-looking photos — from a tiny camera. There’s only one problem with this new category: nobody knows what to call it…
They’re something like S.L.R.’s (single-lens reflex) cameras, because they have huge sensors and interchangeable lenses. But they’re much smaller, like compact cameras.
Anyway, two new ones, from Sony and Olympus, set new records for speed and photo quality.
The big news about Olympus’s new flagship I.L.C., the PEN EP-3 ($900 with 3X zoom lens) is its speed, especially in focusing. In fact, Olympus’s testing shows that it focuses faster than real S.L.R.’s like the Canon Rebel and the Nikon D3100.
Now, if you’re a photography insider, you probably just splurted your soda. Because you know a major difference between these micro-S.L.R. cameras and real ones: micro-S.L.R.’s use the same slow focusing system as pocket cameras (the ones that miss so many split-second opportunities). So saying that the EP-3 focuses faster than professional cameras would be like saying that Ford’s newest pickup truck gets better mileage than the Toyota Prius.
Looks like we have a run for our money…
