Does anybody know the type of artwork you see on the Sopranos. Think it's by Anne Lebovitz. Their DVD covers are second to none.
She is definitely very good at what she does. One thing I don't know is whether or not she is responsible for the post processing.

I like Joe McNally a lot... The guy is a lighting magician.

Be sure that you don't sharpen your images too much.
Yeah I have a habit of overworking them sometimes.

BTW, your first shot will be an awesome photo if you return at dusk when the light is more even. It will alleviate the blown highlights and you will have a lot of color.

Here is one of mine:

I used three images to create this one. This could have been created with a single exposure as well, but I didn't feel like setting up all of the lights and modifiers.

Here are the images I used:

I had a 3 hour journey today. Say some amazing sights along the way. If I took a picture of them, Im not an artist. I wouldnt be using imagination, I'd just be capturing art that nature had already created.

While you are out taking snapshots, I will be making photos.

The real artistry and imagination is how one utilizes, captures and presents what nature and man have provided. The possibilities of doing so are innumerable.

YOU wouldn't be. Photographers would be. Photographers do not just point and click. A LOT of thought goes into a great photo, as well as a lot of technical ability and understanding of light, and the equipment he/she is using. You don't understand that, or photography, at all. That's fine.

I studied cinematography for a little bit, and I do graphic design, so I understand the concepts of it, but as an artform in itself? Not really in my opinion.

I do photography from time to time still, it's definitely an interesting hobby and it is tough to get photos properly, but great once you get more experienced.

I should post some of my recent photos, just been so busy.

Just picking up a camera, taking a shot of a mountain, isn't an art form. I can agree with that. There is a huge difference however between pointing and shooting and actual photography. It's capturing a moment in time and portraying it how you want it to be portrayed, or how it made you feel at the time.

Putting thought into the shot, the composition, the filters used to control the exposure, the length of the exposure to create effects in the exposure, such as blurred water/clouds from a high stop ND filter, the depth of field, post processing work.

Actual photography is an art form. Picking up your iphone and snapping a photo randomly isn't. Again, there is a difference.

I've studied graphic design, photography and fine art. I personally find photography the best art form there is. Photography literally mean 'painting with light'. If you don't understand light and how to manage it in a photo, chances are you are not going to get a *great* shot.

I make some money from Canine photography now. Pick up a random camera and try and capture a Greyhound running flat out and isolating him from the background. It isn't easy. It takes a lot of effort and understanding. I prefer to go on walks with my clients, rather than having their animal sitting against a white background. To capture them when they're having fun, and doing what comes natural to them. You can't get the kind of shots people will pay for, by just shooting off frames randomly without any understanding of exposure, focal lengths, composition, shutter speed etc and even the animals themselves. I've learnt 10 times more about dog behavior from photographing them than I have from any book or professional.

A “snapshot” is a quick rough capture to document a scene or event. A “photograph” on the other hand is a well thought, composed, exposed and executed art form.

And on that note, this thread is for member photography and the discussion/critique of said photography.

Clyde, if all you have to offer is a debate on whether photography is art or not then please, feel free to not post in this thread anymore.
