Friday Photography Quotes

This weeks Friday Photography Quote is from Ernst Haas.
Buy poster of Ernst Haas Quote

Ernst Haas (March 2, 1921 – September 12, 1986) was a photojournalist and a pioneering color photographer. During his 40-year career, the Austrian-born artist bridged the gap between photojournalism and the use of photography as a medium for expression and creativity. 

In addition to his prolific coverage of events around the globe after World War II, Haas was an early innovator in color photography. His images were widely disseminated by magazines like Life and Vogue and, in 1962, were the subject of the first single-artist exhibition of color photography at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. 

He served as president of the cooperative Magnum Photos, and his book The Creation (1971) was one of the most successful photography books ever, selling 350,000 copies.

Featured Artist Mike Nellums

This weeks featured artist is photographer Mike Nellums, and this is what Mike had to tell us when we spoke to him recently.

Hello, my name is Mike Nellums. I can't tell you what a thrill and an honor it is for me to share my love of photography with you. I am a self-taught photographer born and raised in the USA in southern Mississippi. Actually my very first creative passion was my love of movies. I was completely mesmerized when it came to the big screen and how movies were made. I knew when I was 7 years old I wanted to work in the movie or television industry. It was from this creative passion that my interest in photography was born – and lives still.
Under the Overpass
In college, I majored in Radio-Television-Film and was lucky enough to work on a few movies back in the early seventies. The lure of a regular paycheck drew me into television production where I spent the rest of my working career. From writing, producing, directing, shooting, and editing – I've done it all when it comes to movies and television production. My career in television brought me to Washington, DC, at the end of the eighties when I accepted a job at the newly created The Discovery Channel. While in DC, I also worked for The Learning Channel, Animal Planet, and National Geographic Television.
Pitcher Plants
My love for photography has followed me my whole life. My first “film” camera – yes, I'll admit it. I'm old enough to have used film in my camera – was a medium format Pentax 6 X 7. I've always loved the medium and large format photography. I've been shooting digital for about thirteen year now, and I love it. I'm retired now, so I get to devote a lot more time to traveling and to my photography. I've been a member of FAA since 2011.  
The Gondolas
So, welcome to my world, and to the way I see things. You're invited in to wander amongst the many images that live in my galleries. If you see something you've never seen before...if you experience something you've never felt before...or if I can make you smile...or if I can take you to a place you've never seen before – then my work within these galleries is complete. Sure everything here is for sale. But any joy you might come away with is absolutely free. On the house. So, thank you for visiting. Stay as long as you like. And I do hope you will stop in again sometimes.
Erice Sicily
These are a few of my favorite images. I hope you love them as much as I loved taking them.

Friday Photography Quotes

For this week's Friday Photography Quote, we go back to Ansel Adams.

Ansel Easton Adams (February 20, 1902 – April 22, 1984) was an American photographer and environmentalist. His black-and-white landscape photographs of the American West, especially Yosemite National Park, have been widely reproduced on calendars, posters, and books.

With Fred Archer, Adams developed the Zone System as a way to determine proper exposure and adjust the contrast of the final print. The resulting clarity and depth characterized his photographs. Adams primarily used large-format cameras because their high resolution helped ensure sharpness in his images.


Adams founded the photography group known as Group f/64 along with fellow photographers Willard Van Dyke and Edward Weston.

Yahoo - stop your deadly ivory trade!

I received the following email from Avaaz.org who are a campaigning organisation with a track record of getting results. If you have any concern at all about preservation of the worlds wildlife, please read it and at the very least, sign the petition. Many thanks.

Dear friends,

The ivory trade is pushing elephants to the edge of extinction, and Yahoo is making a killing from trinket sales in Japan! But right now we have a chance to end this corporate complicity. 

Several big brands like Google and Amazon are refusing to sell ivory. Yahoo is one of the few major online markets left. But we could influence that decision. Right now Yahoo is losing some of its best employees, and the CEO is offering millions to convince people to stay. If we threaten to lift the lid on Yahoo’s bloody secret, she could lose staff even faster, and may reconsider the costs of this cruel trade.

100 elephants are being massacred a day, and their emotional intelligence means they understand the horror of what is happening to them. Let’s raise a million voices to protect these majestic creatures -- Avaaz will run an advertising blitz and target Yahoo employees worldwide to demand change from the inside. Add your voice now:

https://secure.avaaz.org/en/yahoo_ivory_loc_/?tAtCekb

Ivory sales on Yahoo Japan are exploding, growing from around $2 million in 2010 to $7 million in 2014. Yahoo Japan is separate from the global firm Yahoo, but the global company is its second largest shareholder, and has a massive say on policy. 

Yahoo’s CEO, Marissa Mayer, is under threat. Yahoo’s financial performance has been poor, some investors want her gone, and employees are demoralised -- over a third of the workforce left in the last year. The last thing she needs right now is to be distracted by even more bad publicity and employee anger. And if we win on Yahoo, we can use the momentum to go after the other companies that still allow ivory sales online.

With experts warning that elephants could be extinct in the wild in just one or two decades, there is no time to delay. If we raise the alarm about Yahoo’s involvement in the slaughter with employees and the media, CEO Mayer will be under pressure to follow other responsible companies and ban ivory from the site. Act now and share this story so the whole world knows: 

https://secure.avaaz.org/en/yahoo_ivory_loc_/?tAtCekb

When nearly 1.4 million Avaazers and WWF supporters joined Leonardo DiCaprio in a call to the Thai prime minister to end her country’s unregulated ivory market, we left so many comments on her Facebook page that it was temporarily shut down! Our pressure forced her to listen -- and she pledged to end the unregulated trade. Now let's shut down another major part of the trade in these precious animals' tusks!

With hope and determination,

Meredith, Marie, Alice, Risalat, Emilia and the rest of the Avaaz team

My name is Nicholas Blackwell and I am a photographer based in Sydney, Australia.  I have a passion for landscape photography and love nothing better than “heading bush” with my camera and tripod to capture the beauty of Australian landscapes and seascapes.

Featured Artist Bruce J Schmalfuss

This weeks featured artist is Bruce Schmalfuss

The inspiration for Bruce’s work comes from a passion and love of Rock ‘n Roll, specifically, Led Zeppelin.  It’s been an obsession since 1973.

His work first came out back in the late 80’s using wood as a medium, in many instances making three dimensional paintings using a router and other carving tools to add depth. 

Focusing on Rock album covers for a time, it culminated in the Physical Graffiti cover. After seven months of carving each brick and building out the fire escapes etc., he was exhausted on album covers.

Yet not wanting to give up on the wood working aspect, Bruce turned to ship building. First the Titanic, which he was featured in News 12 Long Island, an 8 ft handmade wood replica of the ill-fated ocean liner, each piece hand made. This was followed up with the USS North Carolina.  A slightly smaller work by scale, yet much more complicated and more detail to do.  

Finally, having exhausted on wood all together Bruce has turned to an entirely new medium; canvas using both Acrylics and Oils. He is back to Rock ‘n Roll genre, as well as family portraits and movie characters. But Led Zeppelin will remain his passion!

You can learn more about Bruce and view examples of his work on his Facebook page and his website https://schmalfussart.wordpress.com/ You can also view the canvas prints he has for sale on his Fine Art America site.

Friday Photography Quotes

This weeks Friday photography quote comes from Elliott Erwitt.
Elliott Erwitt (b. 26 July 1928 Paris, France) is an advertising and documentary photographer known for his black and white candid shots of ironic and absurd situations within everyday settings— a master of Henri Cartier-Bresson's "decisive moment".

Erwitt was born in Paris of Jewish-Russian immigrant parents. In 1939, when he was ten, his family immigrated to the United States. He studied photography and filmmaking at Los Angeles City College and the New School for Social Research, finishing his education in 1950.

Erwitt served as a photographer's assistant in the 1950s in the United States Army while stationed in France and Germany. He was influenced by meeting the famous photographers Edward Steichen, Robert Capa and Roy Stryker. Stryker, the former Director of the Farm Security Administration's photography department, hired Erwitt to work on a photography project for the Standard Oil Company. He then began a freelance photographer career and produced work for Collier's, Look, Life and Holiday. Joining the Magnum Photos agency in 1953 allowed him to shoot photography projects around the world.

One of the subjects Erwitt has frequently photographed in his career is dogs: they have been the subject of four of his books, Son of Bitch (1974), Dog Dogs (1998), Woof (2005) and Elliott Erwitt's Dogs (2008).

More recently, Erwitt has created an alter ego, the beret-wearing and pretentious Andr√© S. Solidor (which abbreviates to "ass") — "a contemporary artist, from one of the French colonies in the Caribbean, I forget which one" — in order to "satirise the kooky excesses of contemporary photography". His work was published in a book, The Art of Andr√© S. Solidor (2009), and exhibited in 2011 at the Paul Smith Gallery in London.


Erwitt was awarded The Royal Photographic Society's Centenary Medal and Honorary Fellowship (HonFRPS) in 2002 in recognition of a sustained, significant contribution to the art of photography and the International Center for Photography's Infinity Award, Lifetime Achievement category, in 2011.

New Photography Equipment at CES 2016

A host of new products have been launched by the major manufacturers at CES 2016, including Canon, Panasonic, Olympus and Nikon, and they are all available for pre-order at B&H.

Canon, has revamped its PowerShot lineup. Practically every consumer-level point-and-shoot has been updated here, with the release of the PowerShot SX540 HS, PowerShot SX420 IS, PowerShot ELPH 360 HS, PowerShot ELPH 190 IS, and PowerShot ELPH 180 Digital Cameras.
PowerShot SX540 HS
Keeping the same long 50x optical zoom range of its predecessor, the PowerShot SX540 HS ups the ante with a new 20.3MP 1/2.3" High-Sensitivity CMOS sensor and the use of the DIGIC 6 processor. This improvement offers higher-resolution shooting and lower noise at high ISOs, as well as a fast continuous shooting rate. Video also gets a bump with the ability to record Full HD video at 60p in addition to 30p.

Click to view all of the Powershot Range and to pre-order the new cameras.
================================================
Panasonic has launched the longest native lens available for the system: the Leica DG Vario-Elmar 100-400mm f/4-6.3 ASPH. POWER O.IS. The focal length of this lens covers an impressive 200-800mm equivalent range, making it an ideal choice for wildlife, nature, and sport photographers. And keeping with the Micro Four Thirds system’s traditions, this new optic yields a relatively compact, lightweight form factor that suits travel applications and handheld shooting.

================================================
Olympus has just announced the newest member of its aptly-named series of durable, rugged point-and-shoots: the Stylus Tough TG-870. Succeeding last year's TG-860, the new TG-870 improves upon an already tested set of features through the inclusion of a brighter LCD screen for easier visibility in daylight conditions, AF Lock for more accurate subject tracking, a trio of modes dedicated to enhanced nighttime shooting, and a baker's dozen of Art Filters.

At its core, the TG-870's most distinguishing attributes revolve around the environmental conditions it can endure: waterproof to 50', shockproof to 7', crushproof to 220 lbf, freeze proof to 14°F, and dustproof. These specs alone make the camera an ideal companion for your vacations to the beach, snowy wintertime expeditions, or even just a well-protected option to withstand everyday mishaps. 
Olympus Stylus Tough TG-870
Olympus have also launched the Olympus M.ZUIKO Digital ED 300mm f/4 IS PRO lens. Despite providing a 600mm equivalent focal length, this 300mm f/4 remains compact, measuring just about 9 inches long, as well as being easy to handle at slightly less than 3 pounds. To further ensure that images generated by this lens are sharp, a 5-Axis Sync IS system is built in, and works in conjunction  with the in-camera stabilization systems of the OM-D E-M5 Mark II and OM-D E-M1 to provide up to six stops of image stabilization for sharp handheld image-making in difficult lighting conditions. By combining both lens- and sensor-shift stabilization methods, shake correction is more effective for stills and movie recording while retaining a high degree of image quality.

================================================
Nikon  has announced the latest flagship D5 DSLR, equipped with a revamped AF system and 4K video, a long-awaited top-of-the-line DX-format D500 DSLR, and a radio-capable SB-5000 AF Speedlight. 

The D5 improves upon its predecessor in almost every manner, but most notably with the use of a 20.8MP FX-format CMOS sensor, the EXPEED 5 processor, and a brand new 153-point Multi-CAM 20K phase-detect AF sensor. This combination of factors brings greater detail, enhanced processing, and fast, accurate focusing in nearly all conditions. Also, it adds the ability to record 4K UHD video at up to 30 fps, a huge plus for demanding hybrid shooters. One note about the latest flagship is that there will be two available: an XQD-type that sports dual XQD card slots and a CF-type with dual CF card slots, as opposed to the mixed card slots of the D4S.

Featured Artist Debi Bond

For today's feature, we spoke to artist Debi Bond who had this to say about herself and her art:-

My goal as an artist is to offer a place of tranquility to stop, rest and sometimes smile. Those places in my mind often show up in painting a day full of sunlit color, a good fog, and often animals and plants. The colors, emotions, and light they offer are a magical wonder, calming your nerves and soothing your very soul. Whatever the subject, I love to zero in, catching the very essence of the moment: feeling hidden and looking up or out into the world. 
Iguana at Twilight
Playing and experimenting with acrylic and watercolor are passions of mine. Mediums, blow dryers, lots of water, my hands, just about anything can become a brush. Sometimes on exotic surfaces, like handmade banana or mango papers, I love to batik and infuse encaustic methods with beeswax. When drawing, pen and ink and graphite always woo me. 
Sounds of Music

Art has always been a God given talent and an escape for my own soul in this crazy world. I hope you enjoy escaping with me.

Friday Photography Quotes

This weeks Friday photography quote comes from David Hurn.

David Hurn, born July 21, 1934, in Redhill, Surrey, England of Welsh descent, is a documentary photographer and member of Magnum Photos.

Hurn is a self-taught photographer who began his career in 1955 when he worked for Reflex Agency. He gained his reputation as a photojournalist for his documentation of the Hungarian revolution of 1956, and is featured in two of Ken Russell's films for the Monitor television arts' series, A House in Bayswater (1960) and Watch the Birdie (1963). In 1965 he became associated with Magnum Photos and became a full member in 1967.

In 1963, Hurn was commissioned by the producers of the James Bond films to shoot a series of stills with Sean Connery and the actresses of From Russia With Love. When the theatrical property Walther PPK pistol didn't arrive, Hurn volunteered the use of his own Walther LP-53 air pistol. The pistol became a symbol of James Bond on many film posters of the series.

In 1967 Dino de Laurentiis asked Hurn to come to Rome to shoot photos of Jane Fonda in Barbarella.


In 1973 he set up the School of Documentary Photography in Newport, Wales. Eventually, he turned away from documentary photojournalism, bringing a more personal approach to his image making. He says, "There are many forms of photography. I consider myself simply a recorder of that which I find of interest around me. I personally have no desire to create or stage direct ideas." His book Wales: Land of My Father illustrates the traditional and the modern aspects of Wales.
