Through The Lens Of Photographer Pierre Lapin

The concert photographer Pierre Lapin fell in love with the hardcore musical scene. He left Lorient in Brittany to move to Paris and photograph the artists he admires. “Rather than being a rockstar, I photograph them” he says. A few years later, he photographed Lous & The Yakuza, Jeanne Added and Sébastien Tellier. He talks to us about energies of concerts and the encounters that galvanize him.

Liu is a freelance photographer and artist who explores the human condition and landscape photography. Shot with an Apple iPhone11 ProMax, his images show his subjects in the middle of a story.

Uninhabited Houses Buried Under Sand

In his Uninhabited project, British photographer James Kerwin highlights deserted places, ghost towns and abandoned houses. Already familiar with deserted buildings since his previous Decadence series, the artist (who documents his work on his YouTube channel) this time visited cities like Kolmanskop in Namibia and Al Madam in the United Arab Emirates, where empty homes have been buried under sand, overtaken by nature. Started in 2019, this series should last until 2024.

Incredible Underwater Photographs by Bastien Soleil

Originally from Volvic, in a volcanic region of France, Bastien Soleil has not always been a photographer, but his art has naturally imposed itself on him. At first a designer, marketing, and communication expert, the artist changed his life and his vision. It was the first snorkeling dive in Thailand six years ago that the love affair between the photographer and the underwater world began.  Three years later, he invested in a camera and appropriate housing, which allowed him to capture the beauty of it. The result is striking pictures, which call for letting go, abandonment, and faith. “I believe in Freedom, not the freedom to act senselessly, but the Freedom to be free from one’s past and history, from everything we think limits us. With the help of Water, I realized that we are unlimited, it’s about energy and letting go”, he explains.closevolume_off

His recognizable artistic universe offers a world full of wonders, where the shimmering rays of the sun embrace and sublimate the bodies he photographs. The graceful movement of the models, in weightlessness, is captured by the camera without giving the impression of being frozen. The works of Bastien Soleil often recall the aestheticism of classical paintings, with a sometimes-dramatic aspect. All of his photographs are taken underwater and without air assistance or masks for the models. A real performance that he achieves with brilliance and which requires fast work since the shooting time lasts less than 30 seconds. His work has been exhibited in France and around the world and his video Tang’o, also relayed internationally, has just been awarded the prize for “Best Foreign Short Film” by the London Independent Film Awards.

German Photographer Shows The Behind-The-Scenes Of His Stunning Female Portraits And His 687k Followers Love It (20 New Pics)

There’s more to photography than meets the eye. Every professional photographer knows that it’s almost never as simple as just snapping an odd shot and then editing it in post-production. A scene and setting must be well-thought out, then there are intricacies like lighting, composition, angles, pose, and other things that make the picture pop.

The slight nuances are very subtle and hard to wrap one’s head around, and it’s very easy to underestimate the gap between amateur and pro photography. Luckily, there are people like Kai Böttcher who lend us a hand and reveal how the process looks behind the scenes. The pro photographer uses all the tricks available to create his own photos: from lights, improvised reflectors, to unconventional angles, and strange compositions.

I Combine Photography, Embroidery, Acrylics And Writing To Create Unique And Inspirational Art

Hello everyone! My name is Evisa and I am an author, an artist, and many other things. I found myself struggling with keeping a balance between my love for writing, photography, drawing, and embroidery, so one day I decided to combine it all!

The process from start to finish of each piece is long, as there are several steps in between. Taking the photo, editing it, printing it, then staring at it for days & nights until I visualize the idea. After the initial idea is born I digitally draw it, so I can check if I like it or not and make any additional changes before embroidering it. When I’m pleased with this digital visualization, I then check the materials and the embroidery techniques I’m going to use.
