The Outside View: How Tech Has Robbed Photographers of Power and Given it to Influencers

My daughter recently turned 12 and as part of the celebrations we watched R.J. Cutler’s 2009 documentary, “The September Issue.” Not exactly a typical choice for a coming-of-age film but still one that threw past and present into stark contrast.
As the documentary unfolded, it dawned on me just how much publishing and technology have moved on in the last nine years. None of the staff at Vogue was seen using smartphones. I tried to imagine watching it through my daughter’s eyes.
In one scene, Anna Wintour is waiting to view potential cover shots of Sienna Miller by Mario Testino. The team must wait to download large files, then print off the images from the shoot. Although the technology was already there, it was clunky and slow in comparison to today. We were looking at what is fast becoming history: Analogue fashion photography.
In less than a decade, the arrival of the smartphone and its high-tech capabilities has completely revolutionized photography and publishing. Nine years ago, Vogue was a fashion authority. Today, Instagram is. The hashtag Fashion Week has 15 million posts attached to it, #AW18 has 533,000 and counting.
We’re also sharing more photos than ever, 350 million per day on Facebook alone. Where

Street Style Photographers at Pitti Uomo

Name: Scott Schuman
Magazines/web sites you shoot for: The Sartorialist @thesartorialist
What you like about Pitti: It’s a meeting place for some of the best-dressed men, from all around the world. It encompasses a broad range of styles and celebrates everything from streetwear to tailoring at its best.
What you don’t want to see anymore at Pitti: Poorly executed dandyism. To be a dandy can be a beautiful style when done with the right attitude but it’s much trickier than it seems. Because of its loudness, its mistakes attract the eye like a roadside accident.
Favorite street style moment at Pitti: I love shooting the January edition of Pitti Uomo, because the low sun makes perfect light for shooting all day.
 Your favorite street style icons: What draws me to Pitti every year is the new crop of gentleman that inspire me. But I am also very proud that I discovered some of today’s street style stars like Alessandro Squarzi, Domenico Gianfrate, Lino Ieluzzi.
What you expect to trend at Pitti this January in terms of street style: I never look for trends; I’m looking to create images that inspire.

Google+ For Photographers

Google+ For Photographers


Prior to Google+, Photographers relied on a mix of Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, and other services to display their work and interact with others. No single service provided photographers with a complete set of tools that allowed them to connect with others in a rich, meaningful way–until now. Unlike other social networks, Google+ allows photographers to upload, personalize, and update images easily. The Google+ interface is intuitive and attractive—images appear large and uncropped in the stream, preserving their original integrity; and the infinite scrolling feature creates a fluid, enjoyable photo browsing experience. In addition, the Google+ interface is built to encourage social interaction, not in miniature sound bites, but in full-length discussions with diverse groups of people. Users can build circles to connect with just those they want to include in different conversations, and they can use the Hangouts feature to talk with other users in real time from anywhere in the world. With this book, you'll see why Google+ has quickly become the most inspiring and interactive social network for photographers, and you'll learn how to leverage Google+ to build a following and connect with other photographers–and potential customers. Explains how to effectively showcase your work for the vibrant and growing Google+ photography community Shows how to upload, organize, and share your images; and hone your skills through photo-critique circles Features interviews with leading photographers who share their own photos and tips on how to make the most of Google+ to build an online presence

Pro Photographer’s Career Guide: Do you have what it takes to cash in with your camera?

Pro Photographer’s Career Guide: Do you have what it takes to cash in with your camera?


This is your go-to guide for becoming a professional photographer. Do it full time, part time, or any time at all. R. Dodge Woodson can explain how it is possible to start working nights and weekends as a pro photographer and grow your efforts into a full-time business. Even if you don’t want to leave your present job you can still make hundreds of dollars on some weekends with your camera and your skills. It is unlikely that you can do it every weekend, but a simple wedding on a Saturday could bring in a few thousand dollars for you. Evening work at the homes of customers can be quite profitable. Get into pet photography. That is a field that is still open to working pros. Most cheap, department-store-type, studios don’t allow pets and people spend a lot of money on their pets. You don’t need a studio or extensive lighting set-ups. Be a location photographer. Work outside. There are plenty of opportunities for anyone who has adequate equipment and the skills needed to take pro-level photos. This is a quick read that cuts to the chase. It will not teach you how to become a photographer, but it will give you a great look at career opportunities and how to achieve them from a man who has 30 years of experience and survival skills as a working pro. If you are a serious photographer who wants to pay for some new equipment or start your own photography business, this is a must-read guide. Even pros will find the evaluations on various types of photography invigorating and informative.

Shoot to Thrill: Speedlight Flash Techniques for Photographers

Shoot to Thrill: Speedlight Flash Techniques for Photographers


For decades, professional photographers have been using large, expensive studio lighting setups for their shoots. While powerful and effective, they have certain limitations. A new generation of photographers has embraced speedlights, battery powered flashes that can mount on your camera or be triggered remotely. After years of using studio lights, Michael Mowbray switched over to speedlights. He started gradually but soon realized he could shoot nearly everything with speedlights. Specializing in wedding and senior portraits, Mowbray found freedom and renewed creativity with these lights. As he states in the introduction, he no longer chases light, he creates it.While Mowbray’s main focus is the power and flexibility of speedlights, he also provides great tips for composition and location scouting. Also necessary is the ability to improvise on the spot if your planned location doesn’t work out, like his rained out plans for an outdoor bridal shoot. While creative use of speedlights gives a lot of control over the image created, there are some instances where digital postproduction adds something extra that really makes the photo pop. Mowbray gives a number of examples where editing helped make the final image exactly what he and the client were looking for.
