- Lernen Sie durch Vorher-Nachher-Aufnahmen, wie sich ein Moment entwickelt und was die optimalen Bedingungen sind, um ihn einzufangen - Folgen Sie einem Experten und seiner mal bewussten, mal intuitiven Systematik von Augenblicken, so dass Sie diese erkennen und entsprechend darauf reagieren können - Blicken Sie anhand der anschaulichen Grafiken und Rückbauten auf die verschiedenen Komponenten eines Bildes, um zu begreifen, wie die Komposition eines Fotos auf den Betrachter wirkt - Profitieren Sie von den langjährigen Erfahrungen, die einer der renommiertesten Fotografie-Autoren weltweit mit Ihnen teilt Die Fotografie pickt einen einzigen Moment aus dem Strom des Lebens und hält ihn für immer fest. Michael Freeman zeigt in diesem Buch, wie Sie den richtigen Zeitpunkt zum Auslösen finden und welche Anstrengungen des Fotografen dafür erforderlich sind. Dabei geht es weniger um die technischen Erfordernisse, sondern ganz praktisch um die Planung, den richtigen Standpunkt, den perfekten Bildausschnitt und die Abwägung, welches Motiv und welche Elemente einer Szene das Besondere eines Augenblicks und damit eines Fotos ausmachen. Michael Freeman gibt Ihnen wertvolle Einblicke, wie seine Fotografien entstanden sind. Jedes Bild erhält eine unterschiedliche Kategorisierung hinsichtlich Dringlichkeit, Präzision und Geschwindigkeit bei der Aufnahme, so dass Ihr analytischer Blick für vielversprechende Situationen und – nicht zuletzt – machbare Szenen geschult wird.

One of the attractions of painting outdoors is the challenge of capturing the spirit of a place - changing light, weather and transient conditions demand particular painting skills if they are to be interpreted effectively. Leading painter David Curtis works on location, in all weathers, observing and capturing the subtle effects of light and mood. Oil paint is as good for painting on site as it is for large-scale painting in the studio; it is remarkably responsive; can be applied in many different ways; and it allows time to assess and modify work in progress. In this fascinating book, David Curtis shows how he achieves such expressive and original results using drawings, paintings and stage-by-stage examples. He gives detailed explanations of his two main working methods - for plein-air paintings and for studio compositions - as well as plenty of helpful guidance and advice on choosing materials, exploring techniques, selecting ideas, composition, colour and tone and associated topics. Drawing skills and interpreting the qualities of light are other key issues that he deals with, while his wonderfully evocative landscapes, coastal scenes, interiors and figure compositions provide much inspiration.

You never forget your first love... Meg and RJ were passionately in love. But that was six years and a broken engagement ago. Meg has only one day in Siem Reap, Cambodia, before she must leave for her sister’s wedding in Bali. She fulfills her dream of taking a photograph of the sun rising behind Angkor Wat, one of the oldest temples in the world. But her joy is short-lived when she turns around to see RJ standing behind her. RJ threw himself into work after Meg ended their relationship. He’s built a successful business, but it’s a hollow victory. He’s come to Siem Reap to win back the woman he’s never stopped loving. But first he has to convince her to spend the day with him. Meg is as physically attracted to RJ as she ever was. Maybe the secret to finally getting over him is a one day only, no strings attached fling. Can RJ win Meg back, or will she love him and leave him?

Capturing the Beat Moment

Cultural Politics and the Poetics of Presence

Author: Erik Mortenson

Publisher: SIU Press

Category: Literary Criticism

Page: 240

View: 8699

CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title Examining “the moment” as one of the primary motifs of Beat writing, Erik Mortenson offers the first book to investigate immediacy and its presence and importance in Beat writing. Capturing the Beat Moment: Cultural Politics and the Poetics of Presence places an expanded canon of Beat writers in an early postmodern context that highlights their importance in American poetics and provides an account of Beat practices that reveal how gender and race affect Beat politics of the moment. Mortenson argues that Beat writers focused on action, desire, and spontaneity to establish an authentic connection to the world around them and believed that “living in the moment” was the only way in which they might establish the kind of life that led to good writing. With this in mind, he explores the possibility that, far from being the antithesis of their times, the Beats actually were a product of them. Mortenson outlines the effects of gender and race on Beat writing in the postwar years, as well as the Beats’ attempts to break free of the constrictive notions of time and space prevalent during the 1950s. Mortenson discusses such topics as the importance of personal visionary experiences; the embodiment of sexuality and the moment of ecstasy in Beat writing; how the Beats used photographs to evoke the past; and the ways that Beat culture was designed to offer alternatives to existing political and social structures. Throughout the volume, Mortenson moves beyond the Kerouac-Ginsberg-Burroughs triumvirate commonly associated with Beat literature, discussing women—such as Diane di Prima, Janine Pommy Vega, and Joyce Johnson—and African American writers, including Bob Kaufman and Amiri Baraka. With the inclusion of these authors comes a richer understanding of the Beat writers’ value and influence in American literary history. !--?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /--
