I don’t know why but I fell in love with these shots. Lauren Nguyen is an attorney and has a love for photography. Her shots are soft and bright. Taking the boring everyday things and turning them into something beautiful. [more]

A Question of Color

Before Joel Meyerowitz’s work came along, most curators and collectors focused exclusively on acquiring black and white photographs. In the 1960s Meyerowitz started challenging that norm; part of that process was for him to carry two cameras — one loaded with b&w film and the other with color — and photograph the same scene with both cameras.

Beautiful B&W’s Created With 16 Stops of ND Filters

When I first started to get into photography i came across Joel Tjintjelaar’s work. It was because of him I bought a 10 stop ND filter. Joel creates these masterpieces by using B+W ND110 & ND106 filters, and in most of his new work he is stacking the two filters to achieve 16 stops. By doing this most of his exposures are 5 to 10 minutes long. Joel uses a Canon 7D, a variety of lenses, and Lightroom 3.0, PS CS5, Silver Efex Pro 2 for post process. [more]

Photographs Are Recreated With Thread By Hand In “Portrait And Process”

Figurative artist Cayce Zavaglia started as a painter, but has since discovered new techniques to sate her creative appetite. As she calls it, her “renegade embroidery” comes from a portrait that she shoots of a person, and then she recreates that portrait using threaded wool in a way that creates the allusion of depth, volume, and form. This video from Garrett Zavaglia gives viewers an inside look into her process.

This series of shots from abandoned locations in Europe are simply spectacular. He is currently on a tour to capture the most haunted and creepy images he can and is doing a very very good job of it so far. [more]

Spectacular Food Photography by Hannah Queen

If you’re in the mood for food, take a look at these shots. They made my mouth water with the way the lighting, layout and processing has been executed. “Hannah Queen is from Georgia, USA, and her pictures have a touch of that southern sweetness. She loves photographing natural, comfort-rich foods, like fresh fruit and honey with tea. Her homey pictures make you want to live somewhere peaceful, start a garden, or just visit Georgia for a bag of peaches.” [more]

Sequence 9 Shows The Beauty All Around Us

London photog, Dave Kai-Piper, is one of my favorite people in the fashion photography industry. He is talented, driven, kind and a blast to work with. I got to meet Dave and his close friend/assistant/videographer, Paul McKelvie in England last year while shooting video for a web series and the 3 of us have been good friends since. Their video “Sequence 9″ is Dave and Paul’s effort to show the beauty in all forms in the world around us by bringing together timelapse photography and what I can only describe as “BTS-Fine-Art-Fashion” videography. Be sure to check out Dave and Paul and enjoy the video! [more]

Watch as Ian shoots Madison, a young girl who overcame some serious setbacks, and creates a series of incredible portraits using his custom made (very large format) camera which is built into the back of a box van.
