In this week's video, Ibarionex discussed the importance of paying attention to the small details, especially juxtapositions between the subject and the background. The process of slowing down when practicing photography provides an opportunity to observe the small details that often make or break a photograph. Using images submitted by TCF listeners to The Candid Frame Flickr pool, we get to explore the detail that can make all the difference.
Each week we pull images submitted by listeners to The Candid Frame Flickr pool. You can submit images for consideration in these weekly videos as well as become part of a growing community of photographers.
Paul Friedman is the founder of the camera equipment rental service Lens Pro to Go. He always had aspirations of having his own business and being his own boss, but there was a host of challenges when he launched his now thriving business. It was both his passion for photography and an idea about how to service his customers that have allowed him to succeed.
In this week's video, Ibarionex asks the question of “Is it street photography?” He asks the question not in pursuit of an exact definition, but rather to challenge photographers to consider when and how they choose to photograph a scene whether it’s in on a public sidewalk or elsewhere.
Josh Coombes is a UK-based hairdresser and when he started to reach out to the homeless in his city and offer them free hair cuts, he started the hashtag #dosomethingfornothing. It wasn’t long before he decided to take this idea to more than just his native city.
The idea is that as the hashtag and online presence grows, others will be inspired to ‘do something for nothing’. Whether that may be to people sleeping rough or basically anyone in need of some love.
He recently collaborated with US-based street photographer and educator Valerie Jardin. They took to the streets of New York City to offer haircuts, compassion and interaction with a community often disregarded in our culture.
In this week's video, Ibarionex walks through his process for creating a pair of street images during his recent trip to South Africa. He explains how he worked the scene in a variety of ways considering light and shadow and the different elements that entered and exited the frame.
Johannesberg-based photographer Alastair McLachlan decided to investigate the city the heart of the matter, so to speak, and made the 19th floor of the Lister Medical Building his home. From this vantage point and over more than 12 years he witnessed and tried to understand and make sense of Johannesburg.
In this week's video, Ibarionex talks about paying attention to transitions between light and shadow and using those as the foundation of a photographic composition. Using listener images, he demonstrates how a photographer can produce a carefully composed frame that builds on the strengths of light, shape, color and gesture.
Anton Bosman is a South African photographer based in Johannesburg who specializes in both natural and urban landscapes. However, it is images of Downtown Johannesburg that demonstrate his passion for the city. Through his photographs he reveals the urban center’s beauty and history, while countering the often negative perception of the district.
Fadi BouKaram was born and raised in Beirut and never wanted to be a photographer. Growing up in a war-torn country, photos often were -- and still are -- the only remnant of the many people who don't exist anymore. These people unwittingly became mythical, for each photo of them hid fantastical stories that only the adults lived and told; it was magic.
In this week's video, Ibarionex, spurred by a comment by a viewer, examines the idea of street as character. Though a lot of street photography utilizes people as their primary subject matter, Ibarionex considers what happens when the photographer doesn’t include people or only uses people as a graphic element in the photograph.
