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.

But this technique does not make it possible to add intentional motion blur to a static frame. Continue reading

TIPS FOR TAKING MOD SHOW

Taking models on the catwalk is a skill that some take for granted, but few photographers do the job as well as they could. But your job at a fashion show is to somehow take perfect photos, while being in a crowd with other photographers, cliched like sardines in a bank, in a dark corner of a very hostile environment where most things are beyond your control.

Before we begin, remember that the purpose of catwalk photography is to provide a consistent set of quality images for designers or media publications covering an event in the fashion world. Qualitative!
