Louis Draper and Leonard Freed: Two photographers – one black, one white – look at life during the civil rights era. Both artists were incredibly talented formalists who put that skill at the service of expression. They also shared a goal: to create dignified depictions of African Americans that portrayed them not as victims or heroes but as individuals.

 

 

 

The Importance of Presentation

March 8, 2017

Please read these jurors’ statements about a past Student Art Show. While they both point out the strength of the photography work, they were really down on the overall presentation and lack of craftsman ship in the work submitted. While this has been less of an issue in more recent exhibitions.

Action and sports photography is challenging but very exciting. The key to getting good pictures is to set your camera up properly before the event begins, so that when things kick off you can forget about your settings and focus on the action.

Photography Mad’s camera settings are an excellent place to start. They work well in all situations and will help you get sharp, detailed photos with plenty of atmosphere and interest. Click here to read.

PS. Shoot in RAW, not JPG.
