I like the new Snapshots Photography website
From the Blog
In times like this, photographing is not difficult to accomplish. For almost $250,- you have a descent (compact) camera with full manual settings and if you want to spend more
for something serious u have a SLR camera with lens for approx. $500,- or less.
The biggest disadvantage of this easy market is to divide where the amateur ends and the professional starts. Because the there is much offer it is more difficult to distinguish yourself from a amateur.
In the end it's al about main rules and taste of the end user.
The best way to explain the differences between black/white and color is like: the moon and the earth. They are two different planets close to each other.
An image with little color and emotion is strengthened when it is in black and white shown. Black and white is often associated with classic, vintage and ancient. A composition in color gets an older "soul" when selecting grayscale.
By contrast, a composition comes to life with much colors and contrast, like a painting; It comes a life. A memorable quote from the movie: 'A Beautiful Mind': God must be a painter.
After 6 years the Snapshots photography website jumped in to an new digital jacked. A new website came online at februari 2011. Totall new color palet feat. sliders, blog and recently added photo's.
Newly updates and new artikels will direct posted and linked on the website.
You can never assume that a person(s) sees what you see. Maybe you see something that another has already seen. Photography is derived from the Greek word and means literally: writing with light.
Ansel Adams, 1902-1984 wrote: "There are always two people in every picture, the photographer and theviewer."
Each eye has a difference, as the difference of perception of everyone. The only way to show it is recording your observation. Photographing your composition.
