MATSEY DAKOVICH – TALENTED STREET-PHOTOGRAPHER AND TRAVELER-DOCUMENTIST

I am not a street photographer. I’m just a photographer who sometimes manages to take a good photo on the street

M. Dakovich

Maciej Dakowicz (© Maciej Dakowicz) is a documentary photographer and a master of the truly “street” genre. The Pole, who moved to live in the UK, but did not stay long anywhere, became famous for the provocative and even scandalous series of works by Cardiff after Dark, which he shot in 2009. Photographs published in 2012 as a separate book are an impassive reportage from the streets of English Cardiff, where after sunset young residents of the city have fun in bars and pubs, sometimes completely “losing face”. Alcoholic chronicles of the British fun almost shook the foundations of the Crown and sparked a heated public discussion. In many respects, this is the merit of the author of the pictures – witty, ruthlessly noticing details with his sharp eye, able to build the composition so that the viewer grasps the point at one point.

VIVIEN MAYER (© VIVIAN MAIER) – GENIUS OBSERVING REALITY

The story of the American photographer Vivien Maier (© Vivian Maier) is an interesting case of fame that came to the photographer only after death. Nobody saw her carefully assembled archive of almost one hundred thousand negatives, it was discovered by chance, and made a real international sensation.

A detailed and distinctive illustration of the life of American society of the 60s and 70s, funny street plots and surprisingly characteristic portraits do not leave anyone indifferent. In terms of professionalism, ability to approach the model and reveal her personality, Meyer is compared with Robert Frank and Lee Friedlander.

Art lasts forever and works outlive their creators who serve only as “guides” between creativity and the viewer. Unfortunately, the name Mayer became known only after her death, and she did not receive the recognition she deserves. Continue reading

CAMERA DIAPHRAGM AND DOF WITH SIMPLE LANGUAGE

Anyone who is not too lazy and read the instructions for the camera may not read further. But for those who are too lazy to do this – perhaps there will be a cognitive “explanation on the fingers”.

In any camera, such a thing as an aperture is provided. Jargon photographers also call it a hole or relative hole. The diaphragm is a certain mechanism, which is most often located in the lens and may have the property of narrowing and expanding. what is aperture scale

When this hole narrows, less light enters the camera sensor. Thus, it is possible to adjust – if there is a lot of light, then due to the narrowing of the diaphragm, its amount is reduced, and the frame is exposed normally. The opposite effect is also true – the larger the relative aperture, the more light will fall on the camera’s sensor and, accordingly, can be shot in fairly dark conditions. Continue reading
