Cool geeky article about the beginings of what we know today as a JPEG and how a Playboy centerfold is at the center of it all!!!
I came across this post and thought of all my pals that send me pictures from there Iphones that they took using the app Instagram.
I remeber having to actually cross process my E-6 slide film and c-41 in a lab while accounting for exposure compendation from the processing in order to get the ” Cross Processed” look. It was a bit of a art form. However, I can not say I miss it. Seems a lot easy to use one of these filters on an Iphone!
On this date, August 22, 1908 the man behind the decisive moment was born. Henri Cartier-Bresson co-founded the famous Magnum Photo Agency with Robert Capa, George Rodger, Bill Vandivert, and David Seymour in 1947.
Photographing professional dancers during a show is both a blessing and curse. On one hand you have these top athletes performing amazing dance moves with the agility of a leopard. On the other hand they are doing this under less then ideal lighting and they are moving very very fast. The lighting on a production is great for viewing as an audience member, but not great for freezing the peak action of the dancers’ moves in a camera. This even becomes more difficult when it is a large number of dancers dancing at once.
Joshua Prezant Photography is no stranger to the wings and the orchestra pits of theater houses. So when the call came in to do Production stills for the Doug Varone and Dancers dance company we were equally excited and up for the challenge. The client did not want to pose and of the shots so we shot well they were doing a full dress rehearsal.
Recently I had the honor of photographing an old friend right before she gave birth. It was a lot of fun and she looked amazing while carrying at 8 month! Dad even got into the fun for the shoot too.
Shortly after the maternity pictures were taken I got to photograph the little guy ( now just a few days old) that was inside during the first shoot. Both mom and son were great subjects. The little guy only peed once on set!
