The Different Shades Of Photography …

BEAUTY

In the early days of photography, photographers had no choice but to shoot in black and white, as it was the only available medium. Then in 1936, the invention of kodachrome gave colour photography to the world. But black and white photography didn’t die off, instead it flourished. Modern black and white photography at it’s best is art, and many photographers regard it as the purest form of photography.

So why does black and white photography command such acclaim? One reason is that colour is a distraction. It takes attention away from the visual building blocks of a great photo; texture, tonal contrast, shape, form and lighting. A photographer shooting in black and white has to learn how to use all these elements to create a memorable image.

Black and white nude photography can scenic photographs look stunning. Make an essential part of your black and white photographs look their best is shooting in the right light. Shooting black and white photographs can really change the dimensions of the entire image. This article gives you some tips for taking some great scenic black and white images.

If you attempt the perfect panoramic shot to be recorded, it is important that you use a tripod. The tripod will help you get some steady shots of the view that you want to record. Later, this makes it easier for you to get it all together to get a panoramic view.

Note composition in shaping your nude photos. The pros use a simple formula as a “rule of thirds”, which simply means, mentally divide your image into three sections. It is rarely a good idea to put your main feature in the center of the composition. Place your guess many important focus in the right third portion of your composed shot.

In nude photography, make sure that you focus on the quality and not the quantity of images, is that you take. It is always better for you to get ten great shots than one hundred average shots in one day. Quality is always the better choice.

Photography Editiorials Done Right

lady in pink

Breaking into editorial photography is a great way to get more exposure, build your portfolio, and receive unique assignments that will allow you to work with models, real people, and even allows you to travel the world.a13

If you’re already an accomplished professional, transitioning to editorial photography can be fairly easy if you can remember a few things that makes it different than typical portraits.

There may be an angle or a specific item or location the writer talks about in the article that you should focus on. Your images are to compliment the article. So giving the story a quick glance can help you look for specific items in stores, or to help you visually set a tone for the shoot. If it mentions an old antique chest, ask where it is located. If it describes a specific dish, request it to be made, because often readers will want a photo to reference.

Being overly prepared and educated on what you are shooting will help you prepare when you’re on site shooting and will also impress the art director.

Some editors already have an idea of layout for the story content. Don’t be afraid to ask for the predicted size for the feature or orientation preference they have in mind. However, still shoot horizontally and vertically for every shot for options as content can change.

Knowing that the story text will overlap the image can also help you go into a shoot looking for a clean background or shoot with a shallow depth of field that won’t compete with text.seniorfashion20

Something else to remember that you may also not know, if the content will be on the right or left, so make sure you shoot with the subject looking in both directions so they don’t look off the page.

If you’re not a vertical shooter, get used to shooting verticals. Especially if you want to do magazine work. Typically magazines know what their feature story is for the publication so if you are shooting a part of the assignment, there’s a fairly good chance you can land the cover. Make sure you leave space for the magazine header. Do this by avoiding busy backgrounds and keeping signage out of your shot.

If you’re not used to shooting verticals, consider investing in a battery grip with a vertical release. It will help you make straighter shots.

There is still only so much that can be done in post. Editorial art directors like smart, sharp images with straight lines and clean composition. Sometimes fixing crooked horizons in a post can’t fix it as well as just taking a step to the left or right.

The new Upright Tool in Lightroom can do wonders for straightening out lines in architecture, but it’s not perfect. Throw a couple curves in with the lines and you might be out of luck. Get it all right before you leave the scene.

Often photographers are in the habit of cropping in the camera. The difference with shooting for magazines is that the images often take up the entire page and need bleed room. You can avoid any images from being thrown out by simply giving extra room along the sides. Take a step back before taking the shot.  It might be hard to get used to, but remember extra space is needed for the bleed. You don’t want your images to be unusable because you’ve shot too tight.

Your assignment might require models and you could be given access to a modeling agency’s talent database. If this is the case, know what the magazine’s demographic is. While most of us are attracted to youth, a magazine’s readership might be more sophisticated therefore it’s important to find subjects that fit the editorial’s readership.boobs

Don’t be afraid to ask to look at the models with the art director and give feedback on preference.  You can also recommend stylists and makeup artists that you prefer that may help strengthen your shot.

By knowing your subject’s profession or role in the story, you’ll be able to capture them in a way that compliments the tone of the article. Your images of a comedian should not be shot in the same way as your images of a CEO. With every photo, make the environment, props, pose, outfit, and mood of your subject all match the overall message of the shoot.

Art directors enjoy working with photographers who work quickly, just as any other boss would. The sooner you can wrap up a shoot, the less likely you are exhaust the subject or take up too much of the art director’s day. This all goes toward getting the more jobs from these people later.

You’ll also need to edit well and deliver quickly. I find that my editing for editorial is not as soft or romantic as my fashion  photography, but more bold, clean and saturated, which is how all work should be! See more at www.TheFashionRadio.com

Mr. Black Tie visits Sourcing at WWD Magic Goes on a Walk London

walkonlondon22
One of the finest Brit Family in the business of making, not just GREAT quality shoes for the gents on the go; But well done in creativity and style as well. I had a blast interviewing these gentlemen about their passion, and how family traditions, and family value means everything to them in their business! I have to admit I was shocked that they weren’t at Tent or Project. Walk London shouldn’t be just a booth in the back, which they were.

20180214_122953halfIf anyone has been to Sourcing at Magic it’s stupid big. How many shoes and designs can there be? You’d be bloody shocked of the amount of shoes that are there lol. I rarely go into Sourcing for that damn reason lol. But I saw something that caught my eye at the media room for the press. Walk London’s flyer; It was simple yet, it was stylish. I also meet one of the three partners for Walk London. WALK2

He Simply told me he was one out of three, him, his brother, and his father designs shoes for men. I said I would come by and check it out. And I’m glad I did. I had a story for the day! These are shoe’s that Zappos should have on their website. Seriously Walk London should be in the center of the what’s what, and the must shoes for men. You should have at least one pair of these unique styles in your closet. Don’t get me wrong who don’t like a pair of Nikes or my choice of sneaker Adidas. But as my mum once told me, “A man should have that one Tie that just says everything about himself.” Such is a thought and I feel about a man’s shoes. See more of these great looking shoes www.walklondonshoes.co.uk/ plus see the video of interview right here below .

The look that is in now is the dashing look of poise and grace. The jacket to be is the ubiquitous, two-button jacket and neat, sleek, white pocket squares are the perfect look for the new season. Another look that is soooo making it’s way is a must, the spread collar shirts, especially those with designs, they go well with solid suits jacket without the ties.Yet a solid, vibrant tie does goes well with nice creased slacks, gives the sharp, elegant look for a gent on the move, yet conservative enough for the work place and hot enough to simply put on a sports jacket and would be ready to go out clubbing..205651_214865055193973_4038100_n
