Paysages par David Köster

David Köster est un photographe de paysage, animateur photographique et auteur de livres basé en Allemagne. Dans ses images, il met en scène des paysages sauvages et épiques. Avec des perspectives dramatiques, une imagerie atmosphérique et l’utilisation systématique de la lumière naturelle, Köster crée des œuvres qui apparaissent souvent comme des peintures plutôt que des photographies.

Pour ses images artistiques, David a été récompensé par plusieurs prix internationaux. Ses œuvres sont principalement utilisées par les agences, les éditeurs et les institutions de tourisme. En tant que photojournaliste, David publie régulièrement des récits, des articles et des images dans les médias imprimés et en ligne du monde entier. Depuis 2015, David dirige également des ateliers de photographie de paysages. En janvier 2019, son tout nouveau livre sur l’art de la photographie de paysages est publié par la maison d’édition allemande Humboldt.

The Art of Photography… An Approach to Personal Expression

This is an updated and newly revised edition of the classic book The Art of Photography (originally published in 1994), which has often been described as the most readable, understandable, and complete textbook on photography. With well over 100 beautiful photographic illustrations in both black-and-white and color, as well as numerous charts, graphs, and tables, this book presents the world of photography to beginner, intermediate, and advanced photographers seeking to make a personal statement through the medium of photography. Without talking down to anyone, or talking over anyone’s head, Barnbaum presents “how to” techniques for both traditional and digital approaches. Yet he goes well beyond the technical, as he delves deeply into the philosophical, expressive, and creative aspects of photography so often avoided in other books.

Bruce Barnbaum is recognized as one of the world’s finest landscape and architectural photographers, and for decades has been considered one of the best instructors in the field of photography. This latest incarnation of his textbook, which has evolved, grown, and been refined over the past 35 years, will prove to be an ongoing, invaluable photographic reference for years to come. It is truly the resource of choice for the thinking photographer.
