you guys all have your lists of favorite artists, so i was wondering, do any of you have any favorite photographers?

i'm fairly new when it comes to this area, so i'd like to be exposed to some of your favorites to help me grasp it a bit better. i know a couple artists/painters/whatever also work with photography, so i think it'd be interesting to see some well-known names (ie. Amano, Ryoji, Falcoon) in photography if any of you can name any

I like Cindy Sherman a lot. She pretty much exclusively does self portraits but does a lot of interesting things to alter her appearance.

aaaaaaaa
i was gonna post Cindy Sherman (because she's pretty much the only photographer i remembered. plus her work is awesome) but i decided to keep my preferences out of the initial post

if someone names the other photographer i was thinking of, my mind will probably explode

I don't really follow many [any?] professionals... [Though I should start...?]

This guy has some awesome stuff.

You can probably waste a lot of time just exploring on this site, too.

Get bonus.

Hey, you're into photography as well?
Well, I like Yousuf Karsh's portraits, but I' m not sure if he's my favourte photographer?
Maybe I don't have one

A lot of people I know look up to Ansel Adam's works, but I'm not really one for super sharp detailed black and white landscapes.

Better yet, go to Herv (do you really have to mention that forum at every post you make?), so I can enjoy the fact of having you on my ignore list.
Thanks.

My list of photographers is pretty short, just because I can't remember any names other than Cindy Sherman and Ansel Adams. There's another photographer I know of that does these sculptural photo works called "many-make-one's" where he took a bunch of pictures from one vantage point, then glued them all together... it makes this sort of time-conscious photo sculpture thing where the different pieces don't quite match up. I can't quite remember his name, though.

"KILVEAR GET YOUR ASS IN HERE" , posted Sat 8 Oct 12:43post reply

thanks a lot for the replies. i looked at/up each of the photographers you guys mentioned and found them all pretty interesting in their own way. i'll bookmark this thread so i can look at their stuff later

Hey, you're into photography as well?

i'm into photography now haha. i'm taking a photography class and i wanted to see the stuff that like-minded people enjoyed so i could keep whatever elements in mind when i work on my own stuff

one of the future assignments is to emulate a favorite photographer. i thought it was a cool project until i realized i don't really have any favorites. Cindy Sherman's pretty cool, and kinda similar to Sherman is some chick named Mariko Mori. she does a lot of weird stuff but i haven't been able to find any high res pictures of her work online. i also liked Guenter Schulz's stuff, but his site fell apart and now i can barely find any of his images

Evenor mentioned Erwin Olaf, and i really loved one idea that Olaf did with his series of Chessmen. it reminded me of American McGee and other artists, and what they've done with existing stories. i thought it'd be cool to do something like that, presenting my own version of something. i was thinking of recreating the Final Fantasy or Nippon-Ichi classes in my own eyes. something like that

if anyone has anything else to add, or any other photographers to name, then i'd still love to hear it

anyways! Kilvear, i found your deviantart site by clicking on random things in that link you posted. what do you have to say about all this! (i know that's a pretty vague statement, but still, i think anything you have to say would help me.) do you have any influences? i really loved the things you've done. cool perspective and excellent lighting. i'm guessing photography is just a hobby and not something you do professionally? i think you really have an eye for these kinds of things

Well there is an unlimited number of photographers' samples you can see to be exposed to good stuff.As far as classics are concerned i like very much Eugene Atget(a french guy at the late 19th century).His work became famous when someone who worked for Man Ray(surrealist painter-innovative photographer) saw his work.
Some favs of mine contemporary and old: Nobuyoshi Araki, Marketa Luskacova, Dorothea Lange, Andre Kertesz, Eikoh Hosoe, Miwa Yanagi, Shoji Ueda, Nan Goldin, Ed Van der Elsken, Robert Doisneau, Lazlo Moholy-Nagy, Gjon Mili,Herb Ritts..these came to mind.Well i suggest buying magazines whatever and just looking up names.
You can always see my pics too of course :

Huu, interesting? Photography is a fun hobby, but be careful about getting too much into the equipment side - once you're bitten by the equipment bug, photography can be a seriously money draining hobby.

>>Kilvear
You collect Pinky's as well? I learn more and more each day.
Did you get the Mai + Athena double Pinky set this month?
And that's a nice site you have. I like how you placed the Pinky Arcueid in real locations just like the Pinky books.
Which reminds me... I should get back to updating my site more often.

Ok I didn't expect my ass to be wanted.

Anyways. No I didn't get the Mai and Athena one. Abit disappointed at the flat chested Mai. Waiting for the Capcom one. I missed the Tenjo Tenge release. That killed me seriously.

I'm not sure how you ran into my deviantart website considering I never posted it here.

Regarding my photography. Much of the influences came from those real professional photographers and illrustration perpectives I look at now and then. I do my best in mimicking them.

The lighting part I have not really learn to control it much. Partially affected by the camera I use. I use entry level camera so there is only so much I can do with it.

I'm flattered by your comments really. Several of my friends are professional photographers. Those guys are the one who really has an eye for details. I remember one of them has pinky shots as well. I have to dig though. He doesn't put it online.

Also like you said it is a hobby still. I can't afford good cameras and the equipment that comes with them. My current dream camera is Canon's 350D digital SLR. It is like a dream to own that now with my current low paying job.

For people who are curious. My current equipment consists of only:-

1. Cheapo Tripod
2. Canon Digital Camera S75
3. A small transluction plastic acting as a make do flash surppressor for dark shots

Thanks again.

The 350D is nice, but I find it a bit too small for my hands. But with the battery grip it's fine.
I'm saving up for a 20D. The 5D is way too expensive for me! Currently I have a 300D, and a few lenses and accessories.

My favorite is just a self taught photographer. His name is Jeff Laitila and he runs a photoblog of his life in Japan. I think he takes great pictures of everyday things in Japan and for some one who will probably never get to travel there it's a great look at the culture though western eyes.

haha that's a long list of people, but i'll gradually go through them all. i'm somewhat familiar with Eikoh Hosoe though. someone else gave me his name and i looked through his work a couple of hours ago. he does some wild stuff. over-dramatic scenes and cool photo manipulation that i can only guess works by exposing two different negatives on the same print. how to pull that off without messing things up, i don't even know how to approach the subject

you're Michalis Kotsopoulos, right? the city/marketplace images are great. i don't want to go too in-depth because i'll probably just regurgitate what you've already heard, but these two images have some really hip color schemes. and i love that environment. if you have any more photos related to those, i'd love to see them if you feel like sharing


> Holiday!
everything is expensive 8( in the past thirty days, i think i wasted a few hundred on small, random things. i haven't been bit hard by the equipment bug yet, so i'm a little scared


> kilvear
i really wish my camera wasn't being repaired this past week. i could've stolen used your idea for this depth of field project we just finished. i would've loved to do the same thing with Dizzy, I-No, or one of my other figures. instead, i did trees from an old roll 8( mine were depressing


> Joe Randel
oh man i almost forgot about this guy. i visited his site a couple of years ago when i was looking for pictures of the Harajuku scene. he takes a lot of shots of people and city buildings, two subjects i love. thanks a lot for reminding me of him!

actually, for a while, i was convinced he was sushi bunny, but ... no, nevermind
