Master The Light : la carte blanche de Lily Rose

En milieu urbain, quels conseils donneriez-vous à un photographe pour capturer au mieux la lumière ?

En milieu urbain, il n’y a pas de mauvaise lumière. Tous les moments de la journée peuvent s’avérer être intéressants. Il faut tout d’abord être créatif. Ne pas avoir peur de jouer avec les forts contrastes, les fortes ombres et les silhouettes.

La nuit apporte une toute autre dimension au milieu urbain et offre un nombre incroyable de possibilités en terme de photographie. Soyez attentif aux différentes sources de lumières qui s’offrent à vous (lampadaires, réflexions sur des pavés mouillés, façades illuminés, etc…), ainsi qu’aux mouvements (expo longue avec l’aide d’un trépied,etc..).

Assurez-vous d’exploiter les couleurs au maximum (néons, illuminations, etc…).
Enfin, être patient car lorsque je trouve une source de lumière qui me plait, je reste en général sur place un long moment en attendant qu’un sujet intéressant vienne compléter/perfectionner ma composition.

Modern architecture

These days, our image-obsessed culture has got us experiencing large numbers of architectural photographs on our feeds online. This enables viewers to experience a visual understanding of a building, especially an innovative, modern one, from many different perspectives; even if they may never be able to visit the building themselves. Architectural photography “lifts the building out of time, out of breath” and makes it a piece of art that everyone can take part in.

The Monasteries of Meteora

Serene, spiritual, magical, mystical, extraordinary, breathtaking, immense, inspiring, impressive. These are only some of the words people very often use in an effort to describe Meteora monasteries. Any trip to Meteora offers the visitors unique experiences of nature’s grandeur in conjunction with history, architecture and man’s everlasting desire to connect with the Divine. From the early Christian times, the steep cliffs of Meteora were regarded as a perfect place to achieve absolute isolation. To find peace and harmony and, thus, to support mankind’s’ eternal struggle for spiritual ascension.

Meteora with the 6 active monasteries is truly an inspiring and sensational setting of overwhelming rock formations with these ancient monasteries occupying their picks. Be prepared that making a trip here is much more than a visit to an awesome landscape. It is more like a pilgrimage to a holy place for all Christians around the world. In essence, Meteora today has become a preservation ark for the 2000-year-old Christian Orthodox creed. Today, out of initially 24 monasteries that used to exist only 6 remain active for people to visit. Discover the things to do and what to see while at Meteora!

Through the Photographer’s Eye

A photographer often sees the world in a different way to everyone else, making the invisible visible.

Colourful Architecture

I would like to see your best photos of colourful architecture. Images could show the whole building or a closer view of just part of the building. People and other elements may also be present but the colourful architecture should be the main focus. The architecture may be new or old and may be one colour or several. As usual in my contests creativity will be rewarded as well as innovation. Obviously only colour images are allowed.
