For the other reading, I think that the most interesting parts were how different lightings meant different things to people. Especially to Dubois. I also thought that it was interesting that they still used terms like chiascuro and the like to pinpoint aspects in photography. I always thought that was a more painting technique. Also fun to learn more about neipce and Daguerre.
For the last post, I wanted to know more about the other photos of the guy who took the very famous picture of the Afghan girl in the front of national geographic. I have always liked that picture, and probably most people did too. So here is website, http://stevemccurry.com/ . f
In my Japanese Art history class we talked about one the most influential photographers in Japan. Yoshio Watanabe was one of the most well known photographers in Japan after World war 2 because he went and took pictures of Ise shrine. Ise shrine is a sacred shrine that no one can go inside and they only let Watanabe inside as a guest. He was only allowed to go the half way point and not allowed to go into the inner circle of the shrine. Many did not appreciate his work because he took many photos that were very abstract and they thought that he did not truly capture the essence of Ise shrine. However as time rolled by, many realize the beauty in his work.
This is a photographer that paints over his pictures to make it more elaborate. I found his artworks as he once dated my sister. I think they are interesting, and something I would probably find in greeting cards or graphic t-shirt. He is a local artist that has his gallery in Seattle.
This was an artist that I came across when I was looking at blogs in the internet. I actually should have post it sooner, but I forgot his name and had to research it now! Anyways, he does extreme angles and shots to get a reaction out of people. And most of the time they’re quite humorous.
