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

HOW TO USE A TELECONverter

What is a teleconverter?

Tele-converter (English sec. TS) is an additional optical system that is fixed between the camera body and the main lens. The purpose of the teleconverter is to increase the effective focal length of the primary lens. TSs are characterized by a magnification factor that varies from 1.2x to 3.0x (the most common are 1.4x and 2.0x). For example, for a telephoto lens with a focal length of 300 mm f / 2.8, a 2.0x tele-converter will double the focal length and reduce the maximum aperture by two full stops, resulting in a focal length of 600 mm f / 5.6. Teleconverters have the same effect on the zoom lens – the entire zoom range will be increased, and the maximum aperture will be reduced. For example, a 1.4x TC turns a lens with a focal length of 70-200 mm / 2.8 into a lens with 98-280 mm / 4.0. Continue reading
