Childhood During the Pre-Television Era

Consider outdoor playtime a rare activity for 21st century children. Now, everyone has their eyes glued on LED-screens. Even two-or-three-year-olds know how to take a selfie too, and play games via mobile apps. While technology is great as it makes every next generation smarter, we can’t help but miss the good old times, when kids were just being kids — simpler wants equals to supreme happiness.

Les montagnes célestes du Huang Shan par Emmanuel Boitier

Que ce soit dans les montagnes d’Auvergne, où il vit, sur les hauts plateaux d’Abyssinie, dans les immensités glacées du Varanger, parmi les pics vertigineux du Huang Shan ou encore dans les Highlands écossaises, Emmanuel Boitier recherche et apprécie les endroits où la nature, véritablement prégnante, offre un espace infini. Des endroits où l’homme et la nature n’ont d’autres choix que de vivre ensemble et non l’un à côté de l’autre. Des endroits où la nature impose le rythme des vies. Il nous raconte ci-dessous l’un de ses voyages.

Kelly Brown | Getting light on your side for newborns

A happy glow from down under
Too many newborn shoots seem to concentrate on a warm studio and forget all about warm lighting– light with direction, glow, colour and life. We see so many photographers use soft, formless lighting and bland backgrounds for babies which almost lose outlines and merge into a magnolia marshmallow smudge. Well, baby skin has to look soft and perfect, doesn’t it? And newborns are not immune to skin care problems? So, light flat? But newborns have wonderful cheeks and chins and eyes, little noses and perfect lips. Rounded, dimensional, confident lighting can work!
