Wedding Photography

The most important thing for me as a photographer is to be as close as possible events.Do not interfere in their course, I'm an observer, which stops those fleeting moments in a long time afterwards, when the pass. For me, each wedding has its own unique atmosphere, which is composed primarily ofthe main characters, but also a place where the ceremony itself takes place. I try to make my photographs reflects the unique climate.

Slide is a positive image obtained directly on the film negative format. Characterized by high quality reproduction of reality and a very high color saturation. Prior to the digital recording technology, the reality was the main carrier of the image used for printing. Significantly surpassed its negative quality materials. Slides are still used as the primary medium of communication such as diaporamie.
Currently, the importance of expanded use of computer techniques in data communications, in modern graphic presentation as a basic element of presentation and computer animation including flash technology. It is equivalent to a single frame in the movie.
The presentation consists of a sequence of slides containing text, images, lists of questions, diagrams and charts, audio and video. Is displayed on the screen by the time defined previously by the author of the show, or, depending on their immediate needs (manual change slide). A slide shown during the "live" show is the basis of the verbal commentary of the speaker, which extends the issues outlined in the slide.
In some environments (eg, academics) was determined by that date and a special film on which the various elements drawn in, and then displays them on screen using epidiascope diaskopu or as an aid in the presentation of the topic.

A friend from Sewedn has this friend of a friend who is in an cool rock band from Gotheburg. They are called Princess. I listened to them on Myspace, and they are pretty cool! I'm going to Sweden this summer (hopfully!) so there is a chance I'll visit Gotheburg and listen to them live.

Facebook pages dedicated to photography

I'm a member of many Facebook pages and most of them are about art and mainly photography. I was curious which ones do best in Sweden were I'm currently living. There are many Facebook page rankings, but for Sweden I found this one to be most reliable: I would say I was eepecting more photography pages to be there, but still it's not too bad. I think most of them are on the French Facebook page ranking, because of Henri Cartier Bresson, Eduard Boubat and all the humanist

Andre Kertesz retrospective exhibition

This exhibition is a unique trip through the life of Andre Kertesz. It is also an interesting aspect of the artist, who at age 80 was not afraid to reach for an entirely new technique of photography (Polaroid). I will cite here another quote, which may be another key to his work - "I consider myself an amateur and I hope that I will be so treated until my death. I'm a permanent student of discovering the world countless times."

The exhibition is open until 6 February, but fortunately at it does not stop in Paris. From 26 February to 15 May it will be seen in Zurich (Fotomuseum Winterthur), from 11 June to 11 September in Berlin (Martin-Gropius-Bau) and finally from 30 September to 31 December in Budapest (Hungarian National Museum).
