Robert Capa was one of the greatest war photographers of all time, and his work deserves careful attention and study, as it can do quite a bit to improve our own. But in addition to his work, his life story is quite fascinating and definitely worth learning. Check out this great video that details his life and the impact of his work.
Coming to you from YFM Street Photography, this great video details the life and work of Robert Capa. Capa remains one of the most iconic war photographers ever, and his work is full of examples of strong composition, perfect timing, and beautiful storytelling. Even if you're not a photojournalist or a war photographer, if you photograph people in any genre (particularly wedding or events work), you can benefit from studying how he composed a frame and used people to tell a story. Tragically, Capa was killed in 1954 during the First Indochina war, when he left the convoy he was traveling with to photograph the advance of a French regiment and he stepped on a land mine. Nonetheless, his legacy continues to this day and is something any photographer should take the time to study.
