Post Mortem Photography

Post Mortem Photography

There’s a unique art style of photography during the Victorian era, the photography of the dead!

This photography styling is known as post-mortem photography and was very popular around the end of the 19th century. The main models of this art were human corpses whose families want to immortalize in the form of a photo, immortally dead in 2d format.

Before photographed, the corpses were positioned in a way that makes them look like they’re merely asleep. Family members would even sometime jump into the photo with the deceased, even as far as posing inside the casket with their passed loved one. Read the rest of this entry »

Legographer-lego photography by Andrew Whyte

An English photographer named Andrew Whyte has dedicated himself into documenting the adventure of a brave LEGO figurine on his quest around the whole of England in the photo series titled “The Legographer.”

Andrew Whyte is actually better known for his expertise in using darkness as the background for his photos. By several medias, he’s been dubbed a maestro of low light. Also, he’s used his long exposure photography technique to crate some amazing photographs. But now, he’s on a mission to tell a different tale. Armed with his Lego character and his iPhone 4s, he’s on a 365-day project called “The Legographer.” This means he’ll be documenting every day for a year! A momentous dedication to achieve great results.

The photography technique used is actually quite simple. Even we can easily do it. What’s more important here is the imagination and the perfect composition. Andrew Whyte choose his smartphone camera instead of a DSLR or any other because the camera phone is more versatile to be carried everywhere. How much of a hassle would be to carry around a clunky professional DSLR and lenses 3 times the size of the iPhone. This just proves that creativity isn’t subject to how much high-tech gear you use.

Here are some of Andrew Whyte in “The Legographer” series: Read the rest of this entry »

Are you single? Have been a long time with your own? Get envious looking at your friendsí pictures on social media, holding hands, hugging, kissing with their loved ones? If the answer is yes, we are so very sorry for you. But do not let yourself down guys because as photographer we have to be creative just like our friend here. He is a Japanese dude who throws away all the sorrow of all single fellows out there by creating a breakthrough on travelling photos. He created images which show as if he traveled with his girlfriend and the truth is that ís just a mere imaginative object.

Keisuke Jinushi is a traveler from Japan who is still single. One day, he sat in a cafÈ looking at some couples feed each other some food. Suddenly, he felt like wanting to do what they do, but the problem is he got no girlfriend to do so. Giving up? Nope. This traveler who is also a photographer and a writer got a brilliant idea. Instead of mourning over his fate, this guy took some photos pretending like being together with a girl (as if it was his girlfriend). The result was mind blowing. Keisuke really looked like taking photos with a woman. In one of the photos, it shows as if he was being feed by a fair handed girl with red-polished nails. In another photo, there is a woman’s head leaning on his shoulder on a train. Read the rest of this entry »

Tips for Photographing Portraits

The following are points to consider when conducting a model/portrait photo shoots. In this post, I will be discussing the matter of composition, angle, backgrounds, and lightings; areas in which beginners usually make mistakes in.

1. Composition
Pay close attention to the composition when photographing a person. If the scene above the head of the object supports and establishes the mood of the photograph, then it’s fine; but if not, you should not leave too much space above the mode’s head. Also pay attention not to cut off any appendages that may make a photograph seem cramped (such as the elbow or the ear), and also avoid photographing with the legs of the model positioned facing directly at the camera.
