John Singleton Copley in America

Author: Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York, N.Y.)

Publisher: Metropolitan Museum of Art

ISBN: 0870997459

Category: Artists and patrons

Page: 348

View: 2425

This book, which accompanies an important exhibition of Copley's work organized by The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, is the first major study of the artist published since 1966. Like the exhibition, it focuses on the large-scale paintings, miniatures, and pastels Copley executed before he moved to London, on the theory that his American oeuvre is unified by the circumstances of its production and is stylistically and intellectually distinct from his English pictures.

Page: 256

Männer wollen anders fotografiert werden als Frauen. In anderen Posen, in anderem Styling, in anderem Licht. Dies ist das erste Buch, das Ihnen zeigt, wie – für private oder Business-Porträts, für Werbe- oder Fashion-Fotografie. Der New Yorker Mode-Fotograf Jeff Rojas gibt Ihnen systematische und einfache Lösungen für Styling und Posing sowie für die Nachbearbeitung an die Hand, mit denen Sie die Erscheinung und Persönlichkeit Ihrer männlichen Models optimal zum Tragen bringen. Rojas macht Sie zunächst mit den fotografischen Anforderungen der verschiedenen Gesichts- und Körpertypen vertraut. Er erläutert, wie Sie durch die richtige Wahl von Haltung, Licht und Objektiv die gewünschte Bildwirkung erreichen, indem Sie bestimmte Züge betonen und mögliche Problemzonen wie hohe Stirn, Hautunregelmäßigkeiten, Bauch oder Doppelkinn zurücknehmen. Rojas zeigt, wie Sie Ihr Model im Stehen, Sitzen und Liegen posen und seine Kleidung so arrangieren, dass sie perfekt sitzt. Schließlich lernen Sie ausführlich und am Beispiel konkreter Setups, wie Sie Ihr Model ins richtige Licht rücken – angefangen bei der benötigten Hardware über verschiedene Arten von Porträts bis hin zum professionellen Lichtsetzen für Mode- und Werbefotos.

Mastering Canon EOS Flash Photography, 2nd Edition

Author: NK Guy

Publisher: Rocky Nook

ISBN: 9781937538729

Category: Photography

Page: 432

View: 5284

In this updated, second edition of the authoritative, bestselling Mastering Canon EOS Flash Photography, photographer NK Guy brings the book fully up to date, with coverage of all the newest Canon gear that has hit the market since the first edition published in 2010. This includes coverage of the radio-enabled Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT and Canon Speedlite Transmitter ST-E3-RT, as well as the other Speedlites that have released since the first edition's publication: Canon Speedlite 90EX, 270EX II, 320EX, and 600EX. Digital cameras and flash technology have truly revolutionized photography in the 21st century. Originally seen simply as a practical way to illuminate dark scenes with portable light, flash today is used for a host of creative and nuanced applications, including supplementing daylight, designing complex scenes lit by multiple light sources, and simply creating beautiful, controllable light for portraiture. With LCD screens on DSLRs, the ability to get instant feedback on lighting setups is a great help in advancing one's lighting capabilities and encouraging experimentation. However, flash photography can still be a difficult artistic and technical challenge. It's simple to get that harsh deer-in-the-headlights look from built-in automatic flash, but it is a far cry from beautiful light. Creating natural-looking images is not nearly as straightforward. Mastering the properties of light and the ability to manipulate, craft, and direct it is a lifelong endeavor. Those diving into Speedlights need some help. Manuals are terse and the terminology is confusing--this is where Mastering Canon EOS Flash Photography comes in. This is the complete book on the subject, guiding you through Canon's Speedlite system, from off-camera portable flash to professional studio lighting. It covers the fundamentals of flash metering technology, discusses key lighting concepts, and documents a wide range of Canon and third-party equipment. Universal flash accessories, studio gear, and radio triggers are all thoroughly covered. The book is lavishly illustrated with diagrams that demonstrate important functions and lighting arrangements, and inspiring photos that show sophisticated flash techniques. Though tailored for users of Canon EOS cameras, owners of other camera systems will find much valuable information as well. So, whether you're just getting started with flash, or you've picked up the bug for off-camera lighting from such popular websites as Strobist.com, or you're making the leap into advanced studio work, Mastering Canon EOS Flash Photography is your in-depth resource. Includes a foreword by David Hobby, noted photojournalist and founder of Strobist.com.
