Fine art architectural photography

This is one of the magnificent buildings on the Princeton Campus in New Jersey. Some of the buildings there are really something to look at. It’s hard to believe that they use these buildings on a regular basis. This one had kind of a stout feeling to it because of the general size of the building.


This photo can be accomplished with striking modern architecture and/or architectural history . I seek the artistic angles and viewpoints is more than just a travel snapshot or mere archaeological record.

Afghan Girl

This is one of the fine art photo . The photographer focus on her eyes . In my opinion,her eyes show us mistery of her life . This photo taken while a war between US army and Afghanistan . For me , eyes is a part that can represent our expresssion to other people . Like a malays quote " Dari mata turun ke hati " .

Black and White Photography Techniques.

From black and white photos it can get more when converting it into HDR. The most important thing to know about converting your color digital files to black and white photography is :
  1. you must adjust the contrast and exposure settings until you have a true black and a bright white. explanation: If there are vibrant colors to be reveals, it's best left in color! the best is b&w food photography on film! Black and White Conversions: Convert to Grey scale.
  2. the Hue/Saturation Tool
  3. Gradient Map.
  4. Channel Mixer. explanationmake a duplicate layer, convert that layer to mono in which ever way you prefer, probably best to use Channel Mixer as you can't change the mode of the image to greyscale (that would turn the other layer to mono too), to erase through to the colored areas you want to keep. You can of course do the same thing by selecting the area you want colored and then hitting Backspace to remove the selected area.They  found it useful to create one new layer per color as this gives you the ability to fine tune with layer opacity, different blending modes and masking out areas of over-spill, part masking areas where two colors blend etc.

The other way is shoot in black and white in your camera. Black and White Photography Techniques can produce some really nice results. There are several different ways of producing a black and white conversion, some better than others obviously, and some that require a little bit more effort. For the record I usually use the channel mixer as it allows you to pull the conversion but it's not as complicated as LAB mode! 

I do love black and white photos:D


Black and White People Photography

The most successful black and white people photography are those that do more than provide alikeness, capturing the subject's personality. Even the portrait of a stranger can have an emotional charge, simply because we glance the subject's character or the photographer's view of it.

What black and white photos can do better than color.?
Black and white creates an immediacy and authority, particularly with faces, that often surpasses that of color. It also allows the photographer great freedom of interpretation.

Black and White in Photography

Black and white photography does not seek to show reality with accuracy, or even to duplicate it. Nor is it a substitute for color Its is simply another way of seeing subject matter in photography. We must be able to judge .

example:an walking man on the beach stand out from the sand around it or will prove distracting.

In this photography landscape the strong side light of early morning has produced large areas of deep shadow in the beach sand.Good subject matter in photography - walking man on the beach. Black white landscape photography brings comfort feeling and good memories of the Beach.

 Alaska Northern Lights With Igloo

Why I choose this fineart picture because im very interested on this . The Igloo with the Northern Lights is still one of my very favourites not only because it was a lot of hard work involved. Probably this is one of his most successful shots. Based on the photographer,He planned the shot of the Igloo with the Northern Lights for quite some time. Unfortunately mother nature does not always cooperate with him. After they built the Igloo, which took them two days, the weather changed (almost as "usually" beforte a "big shot"). It was frustrating to have the Igloo ready for days but the weather would just not work with him. He spent night after night out here hoping for a gap in the clouds and freezing his butt of at the same time. Temperatures sometimes were below 40.
After a few days the weather finally cleared and he was happy that clouds did not longer block his view into the cold Alaska nights. it was the third night that finally weather and northern lights were on his side. He actually planned this shot on his 8x10 large format camera, but he had to set up the camera waaay before dark, by the time the northern lights arrived the shutter was frozen and he could not open the aperture. It was quite painful after all the waiting, sitting and freezing but its lucky not everything was lost. He used his Contax 6x4.5 with a external battery pack, he was able to keep the camera "warm" all day and night so he did not run into the same problem.
He set inside the Igloo a Coleman Lamp which provided a warm enough light, he messured all the details before the Aurora borealis started dancing. After about 30 seconds into the shot he had to switch the Lamp off to make sure the Igloo will keep all the details and will not be washed out. Although he can't recall today the exact shutter speed he used he remeber that it was around 5 minutes, which makes sense when you look deep into the picture and focus on the stars which left a short star-trail behind.

The photographer biography .

Mark Raymond Mason
Hyee people . Today i want to inroduce you all about the on of the fineart photographer . His name is Mark Raymond Mason grew up close to nature, in the quiet interior of British Columbia, Canada. His parents were very active – Mark, an only child, was introduced to the wilds as a baby in a backpack, and began to explore on his own as soon as he could walk. Naturally curious and creative, he was also immersed in the arts, but it was in high school that an open-minded art teacher gave him free reign with a real camera for the first time.

After leaving home, Mark traveled and adventured for long periods, learning trades like shoe cobbling, English teaching, and ranch-handing in between. He met his wife, Terri, on a rocking climbing trip. He learned a host of artistic skills, but it wasn't until he sold a broken-down car to an auto wrecker that he finally bought his first camera. The fit was immediate and electric; Mark has spent the better part of the years since refining his skill and exploring creative possibilities from behind the lens.

Mark and Terri live in Kamloops, British Columbia. They adventure together throughout the world whenever they can, taking on hiking, climbing, and cycling expeditions throughout North America and abroad. To supplement his income from print sales, Mark is studying to become a professional land surveyor. He still spends most of his free time making photographs, studying art, and showing his photography to others.

Many people have asked for more about the photographer and what attracts them to the kind of photography they do. As far as they go, his a jack-of-all-trades, a gypsy, a free thinker and a dreamer, a protagonist in their own life and an antagonist in many others'.  His not a typical frustrated artist, but maybe just a little.  

What is fine art photography ??

Based on wikipedia Fine art photography refers to photographs that are created in accordance with the creative vision of the photographer as artist. Fine art photography stands in contrast to photojournalism (which provides visual support for news stories, mainly in the print media) and commercial photography (the primary focus of which is to advertise products or services) .
