This photographer is called Mauren Brodbeck, I think she is a very versatile photographer because although her photographs all use the same kind of style they are all different and unique in there own way. I like how she takes a photograph like an ordinary photographer then manipulates them and brings them to life, adding objects and shapes to create beautifully balanced a colourful photographs.
I love how you can tell that she has planed her photographs very well, knowing what she wants to add in the post production and composing her photographs amazingly which allows her to add whatever she needs to without having to scale them or resize them.
I love them the colours of the added aspects blend into the photograph making it appear that they are naturally there but as you look closer you can see what has been done so well. I also like the shapes that have been used how they are very smooth and curvy making it blend in and merge so much more well to if they were sharp and ragged they would not look as appealing.
I am researching a photographer called Idris Kahn, I have chosen to ressearch his work because i love how his work is so unique and abstract. I like the way that after all the photographs have been merged together it seems like the photograph has movement.
At a first glance at the photograph you would not think that is is made up of a lot of different photograph, to me is looks like the camera has been set on a slow shutter speed and has not been completely still, however i think its abstract because you can see lots of different aspects within the photograph which makes you question how it was developed and made, I think that Idris has a hery unique way of thinking and with usuing such simple tools he can and has created beautiful photographs.
The photographs are very ambiguous because they make you have a second look at what they are, although you can see what they are it makes you question what the other aspects in the photograph are.
Copyright is a legal process enacted by most governments allowing the creator of original work exclusive rights. Copyright also gives the copyright holder credit for what they have produced and may benefit them financially.
Who automatically owns Copyright?
In most cases the author who originally created the work usually owns the copyright. However in some cases such as photography, if the photographer is commissioned by an employer the employer is the first owner of the copyright. In some situations two or more people can be joint authors/owners of copyright.
In the case of a sound recording the author and first owner of copyright is the record producer; in the case of a broadcast, the broadcaster; and in the case of a published edition, the publisher.
How long does Copyright last?
Photography – Photographs are protected for 70 years after the death of the photographer. However if they are subject to Crown copyright then it applies for a maximum of 125 years, if subject to Parliamentary copyright it applies for 50 years from the taking of the photograph.
Sound recording, broadcasts, cable programmes and computer generated works – Copyright lasts for 50 years from the end of the year they were made, released or first broadcast. There will usually be more than one copyright associated with a work such as a song. If you are the composer of the music you will be the author of the musical work and will have copyright in that music. The lyrics of the song are protected separately by copyright as a literary work and will usually be owned by the person who wrote them.
Literary, Dramatic or Artistic Works Copyright lasts for 70 years after the year of a known author’s death. For unknown authors it expires 70 years from the end of the calendar year in which the work was first made available to the public. If a work is produced by two or more authors then the copyright lasts for 70 years after the death of the last of the authors to die.
The project was on showing us how to achieve negative scanning, first of all we had to choose the film that we wanted to scan and insert it into the negative scanner, then on the computer open the application called Hewlett-Packard which is the scanner then choose these settings to get perfect results.
When everything was prepared I clicked the ‘scan’ button and chose where i wanted the files to be exported to, it then started to scan the images, I had to set the settings to they came out in black and white, they had a very strong red tint in the preview but as you can see on the right hand side they came out in black and white.
When the images had finished scanning I imported them into Photoshop and started to clean them up, I used to patching tool to remove the marks and smudges that were created on the negatives. These are the before and afters from using the patch tool.
As you can see from the before and afters the patch tool really helped me remove the white marks and and other aspects that i did not want to appear in the photograph. I think that it makes brings out the clarity and just makes the photograph more appealing to the audience and engages the viewer more than to the before images with the marks etc. I also think that it makes the picture look more professional and well prepared.
Once you have clicked Add Open Files it will show which images you have to produce a panoramic. On the left hand side you can then pick what kind of panoramic you wish to produce.
This task is about panoramic, as its summer i have the idea of getting one of the beach including the Brighton Pier and the West Pier. I want to have them included because although they are both attractions of the city, it would create balance within the photograph.
Locations – My first idea is to shoot on the beach on a sunny day and capture the whole beach including attractions.
My second idea is to capture a panoramic of the city center and to include all the buildings and the highstreet
