Video Pick - Chicago Street Photographer Interview

Photo by Jason Martini Photography

Jason Martini takes client portraits - the kind of formal portraiture and candids many photographers take (visit his website for examples). But we found this video interview with Jason, and it's a great video portfolio of his street photography, his philosophy, and reactions of others to having their pictures taken unawares in public places. Photojournalism and street photography fall under 1st amendment freedoms, by the way, and are protected for photographers. No permission is needed, nor signed releases required for images taken in public places or public venues published online or offline in the United States (crossing over from artistic to commercial use for your images is another matter). Click here to read more about rights issues for street photographers, but realize that you should always get advice from a legal authority for specific cities, states, provinces, countries, and public venues where you'll be taking pictures (use common sense and street smarts, too).

Video Pick - Oliver Kpognon's Wedding Journey to Peru

Our video pick today captures the essence of the Photographer's Story. Oliver Kpognon left a banking and risk management career - safe, secure, rock solid - to pursue his passion for photography. This Kit Redding video captures a lot of Oliver as well as the work he did for wedding clients while traveling to Peru. It's an inspirational story and shows a confident professional in action.

Field Trip: Photobooth Shop Creates Original Tintype Portraits

 

There's a San Francisco retail space called Photobooth that sells camera equipment, exhibits photographs in a gallery, and takes walk-in appointments for tintype portraits (see examples above). Our Video Pick goes into the details of the business and the portrait-developing process - and we can appreciate the distinction made between digital photography (where you can make an infinite number of reproductions of an image) and tintype portraits (where there's only one image opportunity and you care more about it because it turns photography into a special object).

We love the look of Photobooth's tintype portraits, made directly on specially treated aluminum plates.

Lomography Puts the Fun Back Into Film Cameras

A recent NY Times article came out, and it's got us all talking. Click here to read Just When You Got Digital Technology, Film Is Back.

We looked up the Lomography product line as a result of reading this article, and after we interviewed award-winning teen photographer Chase Guttman at NYIP recently, he also confirmed that many "hipster" friends of his are really getting into using film cameras. Welcome back, film!

One reason for the surge in popularity is the relative simplicity of the Lomography camera line, and their innovative bodies. Their Sprocket Rocket line already caught our attention (see our NYIP article on 7 New Cameras - Which Is Your Favorite?).

Some cameras, like the Actionsampler Clear Multilens Camera (top photo), have unique functions - this camera lets you take a series of 4 images on a single 35mm print. This video shows users how easy it is to get started.

At the same time, Lomography has gone crazy with colorful camera bodies that also make users feel that they're handling something chic, retro, and fashionable. Case in point, the La Sardina & Flash Camera (below).

Your Comments

So, what do you think? Is a Lomography product something that's appealing to you? Is film photography back in the mainstream, or is this just a fashionable blip?
