Bresson said that the greatest joy for him while photographing was looking for Geometry. In other words he looked for structures, saying that it was a visual pleasure, an intellectual pleasure to put everything in the right place.

“It’s a recognition of an order that is in front of you,” he said.

Tags: , , , , , , Blog, Digital, Focus, iphone, Techniques, Technology, Tips No comments

The iPhone Photography Awards has gotten us all excited and so today’s blog is all about tips on how to understand some of the settings on your iPhone to help you improve your shots, as well as some apps to help you edit, and even add a different feel and “film” effect to your photos.

Apple is giving standard digital camera companies a run for their money. The picture quality for such a tiny little sensor is amazing (thanks to Sony), and the ease of access and user control is just incredible, but because the phone camera is set-up to be used by people without any photographic experience, it is inevitable that things will go wrong.

Tags: , , , , , , , Analogue, Analogy, Blog, Life, London, Photo, Photographer, Photography No comments

Photography is everywhere.

More accessible than ever before, taking pictures is now part of our daily lives.

We document everything: from what we eat at breakfast to the book we read at night.
