Phoblographer Interview

My interview with the Phoblographer:

Photographer Jimmy Yang has got his first camera as a gift for his 18th birthday. “After few years of doing all these different kinds of photography I felt a little empty inside. Of course I love the sense of achievement when your capture that beautiful sunset on the beach or that excellent skin tone with perfect lighting, but that was not enough for me.” says Jimmy in our interview. “I want something more personal and something that has more depth and maybe represent some parts of myself. Street photography was the answer for me.” He continues to state that Magnum photographers influenced and inspired him; particularly Elliot Erwitt, Bruce Gilden, and Alex Webb.

To Jimmy, street photography is different from other genres. He believes that it’s highly dependant on a creative mind and the way that an individual sees the world then assembles the world into a photo.

“One thing that attracted me the most in street photography is the endless possibilities. You never know what to expect every time you step out on the street. There are a lot of interesting things out there to be captured, and none of them will happen twice so you often have only one shot to make the most out of it.”

Lightroom Preset Review: Really Nice Images Vintage Films

Leica M8 Summicron 35-1192890

(上面這張套用RNI Kodachorme的preset)

自從看完了Steve McCurry和國家地理拍的"Last roll of Kodachrome"我就對於Kodachrome這卷充滿傳奇的底片充滿了好奇和尊敬,尤其是Kodachrome鮮豔飽滿的顏色一直讓我很想試試看,但是現在要找到一卷Kodachrome非常的不容易,更不用說底片應該早早就過期了,而且現在也沒有可以洗Kodachrome的店了。


看Alex Webb怎麼拍照

Alex Webb是一個我很喜歡的馬格蘭攝影師,他的照片最具有代表性的地方就是色彩和層次感。每一個畫面第一眼看起來都覺得複雜,但是每一個元素不管是人還是物品當被放置在剛剛好的位子,畫面裡看起來總是在快要太多東西的臨界點。 這兩個影片是他在韓國拍照的時候的影片,看著他拿著Leica M9在街上晃來晃去真的是很有趣。 傳統市場 首爾
