Why Photoport was bannedI wrote a journal and a blog post http://alex-therealdoesnoteffaceitself.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/banned-photographer-pavel-kiselev.html about Pavel Kiselev and his ban from dA. I am finally able to know a little more about it , thanks to ~SLTF who followed the controversy. It seems that Pavel was banned over this photoWhy Photoport was banned2 years ago in Personal More Like This
reported for being against dA rules but strangely the photo has been kept by dA. It is the photographer that has been banned and for life!
The image shows a woman that can be construed to be masturbating and having an orgasm. We dont see the private parts of the woman. But apparently depictions of female orgasms are forbidden by dA!
Pavel should not have been banned, not on the basis of this photograph. I can think of many more that should be banned if the same argument were applied.
Banning Pavel was unjust. As I said in one of my blog posts http://photoport.deviantart.com/art

Should've Slept More Last NightPolitics is a lot like highschool. You either care way too much about it or want to distance yourself from it as much as possible. People are way too sensitive about everything to make good decisions or react properly to each other, everybody thinks they know everything even though they know very little, and everybody flips their shit when somebody has sex with somebody else because frankly everybody is surprised that anybody there is getting any.Should've Slept More Last Night1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Definition: You can go by the Deviantart’s definition, that is a copy of the London’s Festival definition, you can go to Wikipedia, or even surf for another with your web search engine, but it all comes to this: a candid shot; taken in a public place; not staged (beyond doubt); that represent Human Beings and their environment; and projects a Human Being characteristic in the viewer like a smile, a grin, a emotion, a thought, and so on; containing a context to cause an immediate impact. Keep in mind that, subconsciously, your eyes look for the human representation. But the person can be there… or not.

Speed in capturing gestures: a person walking can be captured at 1/125. Any activity in the street can be captured at 1/500.

have a camera at all. It may just be because the camera is a POS
"Noise is a characteristic that can be mitigated with numerous techniques.
Noise is all about how much light a camera can capture above its inherent noise floor (the natural noise that the sensor and electronics will always make regardless of what you do), the more 'signal' there is above the noise floor, the less visible the noise will be.

Hopping you entered 2013 the best way possible, and wishing you all a Happy New Year, let's get down to pixels.
Today I bring you Rinzi Ruiz.
He is a Los Angeles based photographer who picked up a camera only 2 years ago (I can relate ) Known to find beauty in humanity and in capturing the emotion, the mundane, and the art in reality that is found everywhere, without ignoring the fact that he has a background in fine arts and graphic design (but photography is "much more fun and rewarding").
He is a phenomenal black & white street photographer, a light painter and a user of profound dark shadows and light reflections.
He is currently shooting with his first DSLR, a Nikon D90, and a Fujifilm X100 (because he got physically tired of carrying the bag), and shoots mostly at about F/5.6 to F/8.
Go check him out.
Note: Do you know what is "Chimping"? It's a syndrome, a bad addiction that runs in the digital photography community, and the ma
Jeff MermelsteinJeff Mermelstein was born in central New Jersey, in 1957.Jeff Mermelstein1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Studied biology but in 1981 finished a internshio in phptpgraphy at The International Center of Photography in New York and began a career that combined personal photographs with assignment work for major publications including Life Magazine, The New Yorker, and The New York Times Magazine.
He grabs your attention and hold you in that one instant of happenstance which everyone else missed, with genuine intelligence and his camera strapped to his chest.
"Themes emerge after the photographs begin to accumulate", but sense of humour (fundamental) and people running are spread through his portfolio.
"…stalks the city with his Leica strapped high on his chest and takes photos as casually as most people blink"
-William Meyers, WALL STREET JOURNAL
See? No excuses!

Helen LevittHelen Levitt was an American photographer that grew up in Brooklyn and taught herself photography . She was particularly noted for "street photography" around New York City, and has been called "the most celebrated and least known photographer of her time".Helen Levitt1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
She purchased a Leica camera and began to photograph children and their work with chalk, associating with Walker Evans in 1938. No unusual photos, but plain documentary, poetic photographs made on the streets of the city she has inhabited.
Received two Guggenheim Foundation grants to take color photographs on the streets of New York and much of her work in color from the 1960s was stolen in a 1970 burglary of her East 13th Street apartment (!).
Matt WeberMatt Weber shots his way through life.Matt Weber1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Started out as a taxi driver and saw so many things on the streets that he kept saying "If only I had a camera…" A camera seemed like the only way to capture the crazy stuff which was happening almost every night.
Claims that the 70's were more interesting than the 80's, but in December 1984 bought a competitive camera, an AE-1 and a 50mm lens.
Started out in color film, but one year after he turned to b/w, because color was tricky to develop.
Thinks that failure is important, and that failing over 99% of the time and not giving up is something to be proud of. Takes "awful pictures on a daily basis and always will. There aren't too many other types of photography where that's the expected result."
Suffered from the photographic equivalent of "Writer's Block" for many years and it would be the crazy decision to spend most of my savings on a pair of M6′s and a few lenses that helped him to comeback. "The 28mm & 35mm lenses are the perfec
Saul Leiter - Vertical and AbstractAs you know, I normally don't do (features) Journals.Saul Leiter - Vertical and Abstract1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
The exception goes to those photographers that had some historical importance in the photography World, those that influence(d) me, those that I believe can move others like they moved me, humanitarian photographers, and that normally live in the "shadow" of the same old Features and references.
This one is not the case, because I'm talking about Saul Leiter.
He was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, his father was a well known Talmud scholar and Saul studied to become a Rabbi. At age 23, he left theology school and moved to New York City to become an artist. He had developed an early interest in painting, like so many photographers. His mother gave him his first camera, a Detrola camera, when he was 12 years old.
He was soon taking black and white pictures with a 35 mm Leica, which he acquired by exchanging a few Eugene Smith (exceptional photographer from Life magazine, among others) prints for it. By 1948 he began to ex
Aspect Ratio, Composition, Present and FuturePhotography is simply a technology that allows you to record a moment in time, in a box that simply captures a moment of light. Simple and basic as that, no myth there.Aspect Ratio, Composition, Present and Future1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
But the decision on how to capture that moment and its variables like composition, time and subject matter remain in the hands of photographer.
Let's talk about that box, how it affects composition, and the time we live in. Photographic technology has developed at a rapid pace. From the 19th century's cumbersome daguerreotypes to today's compact digital cameras, photography has become one of the most accessible art mediums, but more related to motion pictures that we might think, being at the same time influence and influenced by each other.
The original aspect ratio used by the motion picture was industry was 4:3, or ratio down to 1.33:1, or just 1.33. Theories why vary from from Euclid's famous Greek "Golden Section", a shape of approximately 1.6, to a shape that simply saved m

Original title: L'imaginaire d'après nature
The book, around 100 pages, is divided in two parts. The first one contains a precious series of thoughts on street photography, the famous description of the decisive moment and an analysis of the elements of photography: the decisive moment, the picture story, the subject, composition, technique, the customers, color, the imaginary from the truth.
In the second half of the book instead there are (much less interesting - street photography wise)

Street Photography: To Lo And Behold!Street Photography Quiz:Street Photography: To Lo And Behold!1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
When was the last time a random passenger in a bus made your jaw drop?
Happens with me all the time!
Whenever I go out into the streets, I never plan on what I'm going to shoot, nor do I have a particular theme in mind.
Mind you, planning ahead is highly benefical to a Street Photographer or any photographer for that matter - a practice that almost always yeilds excellent results when properly utilized.
For me, it's just the sheer excitment of stepping into a vast concrete jungle, unsure about what's around the next corner, or perceiving an event that is about to unfold before you, the sound of your heart beating as you walk/run towards the developing scene - all the while hoping that you get there in time to take... that one shot, that ultimate payoff; is all that matters.
Sometimes you could be standing there observing a street scene when you begin to notice things falling into place; a photo opportunity forming right before your very eyes.
