    Hey guys, just for lovers of photography in B & W as I've been reading a lot on the web, because lately I was so busy at work and a lot of work and had not had the chance to get out and shooting, I've been very inspired this week....I share some of what I learned,

    Ansel Adams,Henri Cartier-Bressonis known as the father of photojournalism. Robert Frank is considered one of the founding fathers of American photography. He viewed the world around him skeptically, he thought America at the time seemed too aterialistic and his photographs carry a subversive quality that challenge viewer’s perceptions,really great pictures of this man, really inspired me this week to concentrate about photography B & W Early 2000, New York Times journalists and writer Susan Sontag criticized Salgado's photographs. The photographer was accused of using cynically and commercial human misery, so to present beautiful dramatic situations do run the risk of losing its authenticity.Andreas Feininger is most remembered for his stunning photographs of New York and its architecture.

    so I went this afternoon to shoot a bit and edit some pictures I had in my lap, and got these pictures, I used LR Preset and some Kodak films,

    Very nice buddy, I am quite impressed with the series. Timing, framing, composition, and rendering are all really nice.

    Good set of photos Freddytto,
    I was a bit dismayed to read about Susan Sontag's comment on Salgado's work - surely that's precisely what photo-journalism is all about i.e. to show where humanity is failing. I don't think Salgado exploits the people and cultures he photographs.
    Cheers,
    Paul
