Seamless Spotlight: Frank Zschieschang

Frank Zschieschang experienced life in different parts of the world. Born and raised in a small town on the idyllic coast of the Baltic Sea in East Germany, he grew up in a socialist environment. His childhood and adolescence were very safe and protected, however, he longed for freedom as citizens were not allowed to travel to non-socialist countries.

Frank suffered with the knowledge that he would never see the vast extent of the Grand Canyon, the colourful display of the Northern Lights or the setting sun over the majestic dunes of the Sahara. But then, very unexpectedly, things changed.

The German wall came down and a completely different world presented itself. All of a sudden, the whole world was open to being explored. This was when Frank Zschieschang first came into touch with photography. He borrowed two rolls of film and the family SLR to explore the world and discovered photography as his true passion.

In years of self-study, living in Italy, the UK, Spain and Hong Kong he developed his photography skills to a professional level. It was during his time in Spain when he also started working on time-lapse projects and studied web development. The wanderlust never released its grip on Frank and it has become an essential part of his art. He now lives and works as a photographer and web designer in Hong Kong.

The Fine Art Of Travel Photography

How does a photographer transcend the “I was here” imagery that’s often associated with travel photography and create fine-art images of places near and far? From the dozens of workshops I’ve taught on the subject, as well as talking with—and carefully studying the work of—many of the great globetrotting lensmen and lenswomen in the field, I’ve developed a methodology that, when applied, should yield impressive and, at times, spectacular results.

NIGHT EXPOSURES: The Matterhorn from Zermatt, Switzerland. Many cities thrive at night and bring a different dimension to the travel experience. For cityscapes and architecture, use a low ISO, lock down the camera on a sturdy tripod, lock up the mirror of an SLR and use a cable release.
— – —

DEPTH OF FIELD: Bonito, Brazil. Shooting at a maximum depth of field can create unique perspectives, especially for stunning architectural shots and landscapes.
— – —

SHOOTING CONTRE-JOUR: Yazd, Iran. Shooting with the sun behind the subject eliminates harsh shadows. In-camera meters can get thrown off by contre-jour situations and underexpose the scene, so it’s important to know how to utilize the camera’s exposure lock and exposure compensation controls.

SILHOUETTES: Mandalay, Myanmar. Dramatic silhouettes can be shot at any time of the day, but there must be a strong contrast between your background and your subject.

Rafael Rojas | Timeless

“In a digitally oriented world, I want to honour more than ever the existence, presence and permanence of the photography art book. I endeavour to create books with soul that delight all senses and are destined to be collected, enjoyed and cherished for many generations to come”

Hasselblad Master (Wildlife, 2014) Rafael Rojas explains the creation of ‘Timeless’, a photography monograph awarded as Best Fine Art Photography Book 2016 in the last IPA International Photography Awards and with a Silver Medal as Best Monograph 2016 at the Px3 Prix de Photographie de Paris.

rafaelrojas01a rafaelrojas01b rafaelrojas01c rafaelrojas01d rafaelrojas01e rafaelrojas01f… The end result was a book printed in an extraordinary high resolution (254 lines per inch), three different tones for black and white, intense Dmax and great contrast, wonderful separations of tone in the highlights and the shadows and one of the most exclusive and silky coated papers on the market, the PhoenixMotion Xantur.

The Fine Art of Skateboarding by Fred Mortagne

“As a skateboarder you are constantly searching for spots to skate; as a photographer you are doing a similar thing.”

Most skateboard photography is hyper-focused on the technical details and the action of a trick, but French photographer Fred Mortagne (more commonly known by his nickname French Fred) isn’t most photographers. In his first book, Attraper Au Vol, which roughly translates to To Catch in the Air, Mortagne takes a wide view of skateboarding and the culture that surrounds it.
