Howdy, and welcome to the Wednesday Rundown. This week I did some research on Terry Richardson. Most of the time when I see his pictures I am reminded of how harsh direct flash can be. This guy lives for the in your face, blow your eyes out flash. What is it with this guy and honestly his technique that has made it? We all have had a point and shoot camera with a flash on it, but somehow this "look" has made it into countless magazines. So many times I pick up a high fashion magazine in NYC and there are tons of this snapshot photos that I think any hack could do. Was his content just so good that he could light it however he wanted or is it just something unique? If you have a video that you think we might like to post, please click on "submit content" above.
Oh the old school snapshot, listen to Terry talk about how he got started and his view on the energy of the snapshot. There are some NSFW images so heads up.
Here is another view with Terry's technique. "A good photo is quick, a quick burst of energy".
