Has to be in the TOP 10 of photography vids

Postby Didereaux » Fri May 19, 2017 9:57 pm

There are zillions of videos on Youtube, Vimeo etc with photography as the subject, Some a good, most hohum, but a few, very few, are extraordinary. This is one. If you want to expand your understanding of the art-photography universe this is a must watch. Give it a shot. take the time to watch it in its entirety. Not just talk, dozens of images of famous photographers are examined and explained, and how to view them. It is excellent, period!

I watched this when it was first posted by B&H. As an artist and illustrator I really connected with a lot of what Adam Marelli describes in the video. He puts into language a lot of the lessons I learned in art. However, they are also lessons that I find difficult to keep in mind out in the field, mostly because I tend to rush myself. As I progress in my photographic pursuits I find myself being conscious to slow myself down to avoid making rookie mistakes.

On a side note, I made a similar observations between classical art and photography in an article on my blog site and the use of using a three tone guide for composition in another article. Both can be found here in the tutorial section;

Liked those two articles so much that when I first read them I converted them to pdf files and they are in my permanent photography reference library! Really well done articles.

I am glad they were of use. I'm honored by the keepsake. I've always wanted to do a lecture with my photo group inside an art gallery discussing the similarities between a great painting and a great photograph and how classic conventions apply to both. It's just scheduling such an event can be difficult. Some day...
