Photographer of the Day: Denis Malciu

The image “1” by Denis Malciu displays a perfect choice of composing in black and white, simplifying what could have otherwise been a very busy photo.  As the crowd stands in rapt attention to the dancer’s performance, they frame the dancers instead of competing with them. Imagine if instead this photo was presented in color.  The dancers could have easily gotten lost against that sea of people and the variety of textures and colors they are wearing.  Instead the photographer works purely with light and contrast.  Though small in the frame, the dancers take center stage in the image, drawing your attention directly to them, captivating you as they did the crowd.  

Photographer of the Day: in the streets of vienna

Simplicity and symmetry are the first two things that grab one’s attention in the image “lost in white”. The moment of the women in mid stride is perfectly framed by the columns, her black outfit in stark contrast to the white building she walks past. One of the smallest details that adds life to the image is the raised foot and slight bit of motion blur. This creates the sense of movement in the image, bringing her and it to life, a beautiful example of a decisive moment captured.

Photographer of the Day: Pierre Pichot

One of the most powerful aspects of photography is its ability elicit emotions in us.  But, our emotions can also change how we perceive an image. The first time I saw the Pierre Pichot’s photo “Ghost_19” I thought, “Cool, that has a great dark mood, it’s kinda creepy”. The next time, “It seems very melancholy, I wonder who that is and what they are thinking”.  The next time, “It feels like there is a sense of foreboding, like something bad is about to happen”. Each time I saw something different, because I was feeling something different before I looked at the image.  The photographer has created a scene where it conveys a dark mood, but they have left enough to our imaginations for us to dream up a story. It is a powerful image, because it engages us, drawing on our emotions to complete the scene.
