Robert Doisneau Photography - Kiss by the Hotel de Ville



“The marvels of daily life are exciting; no movie director can arrange the unexpected that you find in the street.”

Robert Doisneau, French photographer,
(1912-1994)

Robert Doisneau was a French photographer born on April 14, 1912 in Gentilly, Val-de-Marne. He was a photojournalistic photographer; focusing most of his life’s work recording the eccentricities of daily life in the streets of Paris. He liked to say “I never noticed time passing, I was too taken up with the spectacle afforded by my contemporaries, that gratuitous, never-ending show for which no ticket is needed, and when the occasion arose, I offered them, in passing, the ephemeral solace of an image.” Throughout the years of his long career, Doisneau documented, “the ordinary gestures of ordinary people in ordinary situations.”

He first studied lithography, but then quickly turned to photography. He worked for Renault as an industrial and advertising photographer until 1939. Then during the war, he worked for the resistance forging documents. He then in 1948 began work for French Vogue for 3 years. But his passion for photojournalism made him return to the streets of Paris in 1951. Read the rest of this entry »

Question: “What is considered a good photograph?” or “How can I make a good photograph?

Photography is essentially a form of media for communication and self-expression. Photography has much in common with writing. In writing, we choose words and construct them to form sentences. In photography, we use visual elements (line, shape, patter, color, light, etc.) and then construct them with composition (one-third rule, line, perspective, focus, frame, etc.).

Writing is considered good writing when it is straight to the point and is highly understandable to its readers. Good writing is filled with interesting ideas and meaning, and they have proper grammar making them easy to read and understand.

Similar to good writing, good photography needs a certain subject and clear idea without any disruptive elements. A good photograph also has a well-organized composition of visual elements.

Essentially, a good photograph is a photograph that corresponds with our desired intentions. For example, if we want to create a mysterious and eerie atmosphere, a dark and shady photograph would be more suitable than brightly lit photographs. If we want our photographs to encourage change, like for example to encourage people to care about the environment, then our photographs need to be filled with the message of environment preservation and so on.

In short, there are a few points we need to pay attention to in order to achieve good photographs: Read the rest of this entry »

6 Digital Camera’s Arch Enemies

Digital Camera’s Arch Enemies



Many assumes that the shutter count of a camera determines the age of the camera. There’s some truth in that, but it’s not all there is to it. Sure, the more frequently a camera is used, the greater the chance of damage but the figures on the shutter count can’t be used as a reference to the length of the camera’s remaining working life. Maybe you’ve read in several web reviews about the maximum counts of say the 5Dmk II which is 100k shutter counts while the 1D mk IV can reach up to 200k counts. But that’s just a guesstimate of the count and not the definitive value. Here are some things you should consider that can affect the performance of your camera: Read the rest of this entry »

Photographer or Photoshopper?

Photographer or Photoshopper

Photographer or Photoshopper



Photography consists of the ancient Greek words “photos” meaning “light” and “graphein” meaning “draw/graph”. So essentially, photography is the practice of drawing with light. So if we’re too dependent on photo-editing programs (such as Photoshop) to create a good photograph, then do we still deserve to be called photographers? Here are some statements as food for thought for those who feel they are photographers.

– Relying on Photoshop is not a crime; it will only hinder the development of your insights in photography.

– A good photograph as a result of Photoshop will not make you proud of carrying a camera.
