I came across these stunning examples of light trails today on Flickr, the photographer Michael Greening clearly has a knack of creating spectacular photography. I could look at these photographs for hours and not get bored!
There is something other worldly and unique about these photos, the fountain’s appearing as if they are unusually coloured flames of fire standing in great contrast to the darkness of the nighttime sky. Enjoy this sea of colour!
My ‘Flickr find of the day’ is this slice of New York Street photography, it really is an incredible capture! The lighting and composition are spot on, the person walking down the street who appears to be a lonely figure, adds a real sense of story and mystery to the photograph. It has a real movie feel to it, true art! To see the photographers explanation behind this epic photograph simply click on the image…
Plus another stunning New York City photograph from Simply Abbey as a bonus…
As a follow on to my post regarding fashion photographer Mariano Vivanco’s stunning Emma Watson photo shoot, I came across some more beautiful work of his today featuring model Andreea Dianconu.
The thing that amazed me in this shoot for Vogue magazine in Turkey, was the fact he constructs his photography so imaginatively. The photographs do not simply portray the model, they portray Turkish culture aswell. Most importantly though, the images are interesting and it is clear the thing that sets Vivanco apart from the rest is his ability to create such unique imagery.
There is something about nighttime that I love, a certain peace fills the air when the sun goes down and daylight turns to blue and then too dark. In the UK we don’t see the Moon or the stars very often (or the sun for that matter) due to the fact the UK is cloudy/overcast 90% of the year, but when I do get the chance to see the moon and planets at night I savour it.
Last weekend we saw the moon at it’s closest to Earth for 18 years and luckily there was a clear sky for the occasion (http://www.space.com/11163-supermoon-biggest-full-moon-2011.html), this inspired me to go out in to the freezing cold risking death with my camera and tripod to see what I could capture. I was curious to see just how the moonlight would illuminate the photograph during long exposures. Hope you like the results…
More New York Cityscape photography from Andrew Mace! Notice how the colours and composition are always spot on?
I’m a keen follower of Andrew Mace on Flickr, his speciality is New York Cityscapes taken during the day and at night. These are a couple of his Brooklyn Bridge captures, he really does make some epic photos!
His work also reminds me of why I liked New York City so much in the first place when I visited, it also reminds me of why I want to go back to New York sometime soon. To see more of Andrew’s work simply click the photos.
This is the start of a new series I will be adding to the blog, showing you some of the famous photographers that have inspired a generation of photographers.
Gregory Crewdson is a master at creating photograph’s that appear as if they are stills taken from an epic movie, the meaning of each image is completely left to the viewers own interpretation. A story is held within each image which Crewdson never shares, forcing the viewer to search for an explanation to the scene that Crewdson has presented. Personally I’m a huge fan of Crewdsons work because it always makes an impact, forcing me to think about what his intended meanings are. His photography is dark, moody and emotional but equally beautiful at the same time. Please enjoy the following samples of his work.
