Damien-Vassart→Paris-in-Black-and-White6-featured

The amazing BW photography of Damien Vassart

Today we have with us 20 amazing black and white photographs by Damien Vassart.

“Born in 1984 in Belgium, and holder of an Audio Engineer diploma, Damien Vassart has always been responsive to art, in all its ways. During his youth, he particularly involved himself into drawing and playing music.

In 2007, photography became a new expression medium for him. His preference goes to black and white, although color also owns a place in his universe. Cityscapes and waterscapes have become his predilection themes, skillfully highlighted in surrealist pictures, inviting the observer to contemplation and meditation.

Beyond a simple aesthetic side, the art of Damien Vassart is also driven by his fascination for passing time, and impacts it has upon the natural and non-natural elements that make part of the world surrounding us. So as to transcribe that, he uses extended exposure times for his takes, most of the time released at dawn or at dusk, moments of transition, moments of switching from one state to another, between agitation and tranquility, that he considers as the most propitious to capture the time.

His pictures have already been published several times in magazines and across the Web, and permitted him to win several international awards. They are diffused around the world by various art distribution networks.”

Let’s see our selection and of course you can visit and see more of his work in his Behance portfolio!

The amazing street photography of Matteo Alvazzi Delfrate

Today we have with us 17 amazing street photographs taken by Matteo Alvazzi Delfrate! You can see more of his works in his Behance Portfolio.

“I started photography in 2009, but I wish I could have started it when I was 10… everything would have been way different I guess.

I work best in the streets, walking around and freezing candid moments, which from that moment will follow me and my life for ever. I also started doing some studio shooting, but I’m still in the process of learning how to master artificial light and how not to blush in front of gorgeous women The amazing street photography of Matteo Alvazzi Delfrate   icon smile

My camera of choice is a small Leica M6, mounting a 35mm F2 Leica (Dentone) lens. I usually use Kodak Tri-X, but I still have to try many more types of film. In studio I use a Nikon D700

I think my studio shots will be influenced from my street photography. For me street photography is the best way to learn to compose in the friction of a moment, to actually see what’s there, to understand it, to use it and to bend it. ”

The Amazing BW Photography of Vassilis Tangoulis

Hello folks! In today’s photography inspirations we’ll enjoy the work of the award winning photographer Vassilis Tangoulis.
Vassilis was born in 1969. His profession is physicist working as a Lecturer in Aristotle University of Thessaloniki-Greece. By profession he is involved in Atomic Force Microscopy which is a way to capture/photograph molecules so making the transition to Long exposure photography was inevitable. The last three years captures with his lens Greek landscapes using the long exposure techniques.

 

I like to capture moments that look not ordinary. Long exposures, infrared photography. I believe that looking the world through a filter could be a reason for re-evaluation..

Today we have with us a stunning selection of black and white photographs by Nathan Wirth!

The amazing BW photography of Nathan Wirth   Nathan Wirth→More Slices of Silence1

The amazing BW photography of Nathan Wirth

Nathan Wirth, a native San Franciscan, is a self taught photographer who uses a variety of techniques– including long exposure and intentional camera movement– to express his unending wonder of the fundamental fact of existence. Wirth, who earned both his Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts in English Literature from San Francisco State University, brings a deep appreciation of poetry to his explorations of place (especially the sea). Poets such as George Oppen, James Schuyler, Seamus Heaney, Lorine Niedecker, Elizabeth Bishop, William Wordsworth, Robert Frost, and George Mackay Brown have played a fundamental role in shaping his attention to the things and places that he photographs. Often returning to the same locations many times, Wirth seeks to explore the silence and the sublimity of those places.

In addition to poetry, Wirth is profoundly influenced by the paintings of Edward Hopper, Mark Rothko, Caspar David Friedrich, and Camille Pissarro and the photography of Michael Kenna, Michael Levin, David Burdeny, Edward Weston, and Ansel Adams– as well as the wonderful photography of his friends Ian Graham and Joel Tjintjelaar.

Wirth makes his living teaching English Composition at City College of San Francisco.

Let’s now enjoy his awesome works!

Architecture-portraits-by-Sergio-Muscat

Architecture portraits by Sergio Muscat

Hello folks! Today we have with us a very cool and stunning photography project by Sergio Muscat: Architecture Portraits.

The ordinary becomes extraordinary through the photographic medium. Through this medium, Sergio has explored life, nature and our environment in the simplest ways, observing what others do not see, manipulating reality through the camera’s restricted viewpoint.

He has received critical acclaim for his nature series and architectural portraits, most recently becoming the youngest photographer to be awarded the fellowship of the Malta Institute of Professional Photography.

Buildings are much more than the brick and mortar they are made of. Some buildings exude such energies that they feel alive. Architecture is a reflection of its creators – their thoughts, concepts, and sometimes their lives go into them. Like art, each building holds a little bit of the life energy of every person that has built, inhabited or visited it.

This project is an environmental portrait of buildings – their character, their life and their effect on their surroundings.

~ Sergio Muscat

So let’s enjoy Sergio’s Photography!

Stunning Fine Art Photography

Today we have with us, a stunning selection of 24 fine art photographs, but before we get started, lets talk a bit about what is fine art photography. Actually there is no universally accepted definition of fine art photography. It’s up to the artist and the audience of course,  to decide what they consider fine art and what not. Let’s see an informative excerpt explaining about what is fine art from wikipedia:

Fine art photography refers to photographs that are created in accordance with the creative vision of the photographer as artist. Fine art photography stands in contrast to photojournalism, which provides a visual account for news events, and commercial photography, the primary focus of which is to advertise products or services.

One photography historian claimed that “the earliest exponent of ‘Fine Art’ or composition photography was John Edwin Mayall, “who exhibited daguerrotypes illustrating the Lord’s Prayer in 1851″ . Successful attempts to make fine art photography can be traced to Victorian era practitioners such as Julia Margaret Cameron, Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, and Oscar Gustave Rejlander and others. In the U.S. F. Holland Day, Alfred Stieglitz and Edward Steichen were instrumental in making photography a fine art, and Steiglitz was especially notable in introducing it into museum collections.

Until the late 1970s several genres predominated, such as; nudes, portraits, natural landscapes (exemplified by Ansel Adams). Breakthrough ‘star’ artists in the 1970s and 80s, such as Sally Mann andRobert Mapplethorpe, still relied heavily on such genres, although seeing them with fresh eyes. Others investigated a snapshot aesthetic approach.

American organizations, such as the Aperture Foundation and the Museum of Modern Art, have done much to keep photography at the forefront of the fine arts.

Note that some of the B&W photos contain artistic nudity. If that offends you kindly skip the B&W section of the article.

So lets enjoy today’s selections!

Colourizing-Black-and-White-Photos

Colourizing Black and White Photos

Deep into the 19th century and even after the invention of coloured photography, monochrome images were still been produced by photographers in large quantities. The popularity of these image style (black and white photographs), stemmed from its perceived durability when compared to the coloured photographs of that time and till date, black and white pictures are still used to provide different effects which can be pleasing to the eyes.

Colourizing Black and White Photos   Colourizing Black and White Photos 1024x772

Sometimes, the need to colourize monochrome photographs due to aesthetic reasons or just for fun may arise and in today’s modern digital society, there are different software such as Black magic, Photoshop etc. that can be used to achieve this. This article provides you with two practical techniques which can be utilized when using Photo shop to achieve photo restoration and we named these techniques; the Lasso technique and the Brushing technique.

Step 1:

Pick a scanned black and white picture (as your initial practice surface) with little fine multicoloured details and ensure the photograph is di-saturated and placed in the RGB colour space (by navigating to image~Mode~RGB colour).

Step 2:

Create an empty layer/surface on top your initial picture and then select the Lasso tool (by pressing the L key and selecting the highlighted tool) which lets you draw shapes that would be selected to be filled up with your chosen colours.

Step 3:

The next step in this photo restoration tutorial is editing the shapes you drew with the Lasso tool. Navigate to image–Adjustments–Hue and click on the colour box to preview your selected hue (you can also adjust the hue using the scale provided to your own taste) and then apply it to the selected areas.

Above is the first method that can be applied using Photo shop to edit a photograph.

The second technique which is called the “Brushing technique” involves:
Step 1:

After choosing your picture that needs photo restoration, repeat step 1 from the Lasso technique to create a new layer by clicking on the new layer icon.

Step 2:

Navigate with your mouse to Select–Inverse to pick the inverted picture surface, highlight or ensure the new layer is highlighted and then select the brush tool (click on B key and select the highlighted image).

Step 3:

Select the foreground colour located at the under the tools section, select your chosen colour, click and drag onto the new layer to paint its surface according to your needs.

Step 4:

To avoid spoiling the texture of the original layer, you change the new layer blending mode to Overlay. This let’s you see the texture of the original layer while monitoring the texture of your hue.

Step 5:

Continue selecting areas/surfaces that need painting and use your brush tool to apply the appropriate colours to these surfaces to achieve your required look.

Tips:

To scroll round a picture, zoom in and out, and view your work from different angles, hold the ctrl key and use the plus or minus keys for rotation. If you couldn’t achieve the standard you require, outsourcing your images for editing to a professional service provider is recommended.
