Photogs / Photo Exhibits This is the place to discuss a particular Photographer (work, style, life, whatever), as well as to post Gallery and Museum Photo Exhibitions and your own impressions of them. As we march on in this new digital world, it is often too easy to forget about the visual importance of the photographic print, as well as their financial importance to the photographer. It is also interesting to remember that some guy named Gene Smith shot with lenses that many lens test reading "never had a picture published in their life" amateurs would turn up their their noses at, as being "unacceptable."

Marvellous story in that BJP interview about Marlene Dietrich instructing him on how to make that 1955 portrait as a composite print from two negatives.

Some wonderful portraits in his book Sittings 1979-1983. Anthony Powell sits facing left, turned towards the camera, very intent and serious, as his white cat extends from the wing of his chair almost to the floor, as he leaps down his as the shutter is tripped.

Snowdon describes his set-up and approach to portraits, direct instruction, slow shutter speeds and talk or silence or a movement ordered, anything to shift the shot from tired to something better.

I always thought that he made a cameo appearance in the Beatles film" A Hard Days Night " lf not, then a very good look-a-like did.

at point 1:07 and at 1:35 of the video:
