  • HT1863 - Beyond Bragging Rights

    10/04/2024 Duración: 02min

    HT1863 - Beyond Bragging Rights It is a part of human nature to want to share our successes. When we make a photograph we are particularly proud of, we want to show it to others. Other than the fleeting joy of sharing our successes, why are you involved in photography? What is the deeper reason you go to such lengths, expense, work, and sacrifice for your photography?

  • HT1862 - Reflected vs Transmitted

    09/04/2024 Duración: 02min

    HT1862 - Reflected vs Transmitted I've come to believe that the most fundamental and important decision we make when producing our image-based artwork is whether we want our work seen via reflected or transmitted light. Every subsequent processing decision is based on this first choice.

  • HT1861 - What Sets Photography Apart

    HT1861 - What Sets Photography Apart Each of the art media have characteristics that are its greatest strength, that set it apart from other media. A novel gives the writer unlimited control over time; music has the ability to tap directly into our nonverbal emotions; painting provides a medium in which the artist can include or exclude elements based solely on their imagination. What sets photography apart? Seems to me that one of its primary strengths is its ability to show detail even finer than human vision and to carry that detail to future generations.

  • LW1396 - Commitment and Viewer Fatigue

    08/04/2024 Duración: 12min

    LW1396 - Commitment and Viewer Fatigue I love photography books, but I must admit that I struggle with big, thick books. I once wanted to read Tolstoy's War and Peace, but struggled for years to make the necessary commitment to its 1200 pages. I feel the same way about 3-400 page photography books. Like big books, big museums also present a challenge. The only way I know how to negotiate my time in a big museum is to concentrate my attention on a manageable number of pieces of artwork. Similarly, viewer fatigue is a real consideration as we produce our artwork..

  • HT1860 - The Problem of Movement

    07/04/2024 Duración: 02min

    HT1860 - The Problem of Movement Gestalt psychology tries to explain why we are drawn to certain themes of attention. For example, movement attracts our eye much more than a static scene. Put in photography, all we have are static scenes, even if they capture blurry movement. This defines one of photography's greatest challenges.

    06/04/2024 Duración: 02min

    HT1859 - What Will I Do with This Day? Each morning as I slowly awaken from my night's sleep, I think about the coming day and what I need to do. Every once in a while, I find my calendar is clean, I can spend the whole day doing photography without any guilt about obligations I might be ignoring. What a wonderful day! But then follows the troublesome question: What will I do?

  • HT1858 - The Three Rules of Communication

    05/04/2024 Duración: 02min

    HT1858 - The Three Rules of Communication An old maxim tells us the theory of communication broken down into three steps of advice. Tell them what you are going to tell them; tell them; tell them what you just told them. That pattern seems to work pretty well in project-oriented photography, too.

  • HT1857 - Toned vs False Color

    28/03/2024 Duración: 02min

    HT1857 - Toned vs False Color When a black and white image is toned, the mood shifts but the believability does not. There is a reason that a color image that deviates from reality is referred to as false color. But we never hear a toned black and white image referred to as a false black and white
