Project 3 "Emulation"

We all have photographers that inspire us. For many Ansel Addams comes to mind on the landscape side, Walker Evans, Cartier-Bressen, Dorthea Lange...the list is endless and all based on your experience.

The challenge is to emulate but not copy the subject as shot by a well-known photographer.

For me I have always been inspired by Robert Capa's Dday photo of the machine gunner. the blur, over exposed but wonderful frame capturing the reality of the fear in those brave souls who stormed the beach on that day. It also showed me you do not need to have the perfect technicals to have a trememndously shot.

While I am not quite as brave as mister Capa in storming beaches under machine fire...in fact I stay as far away from that kind of thing as I can, I applied some of the same techniques on this shot of a pass in flyball with 2 extremely fast dogs (it took 5 tries to get this shot) I wanted to convey the energy and speed of these two dogs. Panning of course would be impossible
ISO 12800 f/5.6 85mm 1/400s



Converted using red high contrast filter and further adjustments in LR.

Who inspired you and what will you create to emulate what you see in their work.

Project will be open through the month of August so we have lots of time to be inspired.

Re: Project 3 "Emulation"

I know we're not allowed to post other people's work generally speaking, but I think this would be an interesting project if we post "the original" and then our "emulation." (And it should go without saying that we would give proper credit to the original.)

Re: Project 3 "Emulation"

If we get permission to share the link to the photos I'll edit this later and add it. Right now though, if you Google, "Lester Kuhn Rodeo Glen Campbell" it's the first shot under the "Images" tab. Since we're talking about emulating our favorite photographers, I'll mention that it was that photo of my uncle's that I had in mind when I set out to get a similar photo at the Renaissance Festival. I came closest with this one:



Part of what I love about my uncle's that isn't in mine is the great big clod of dirt being kicked up and frozen with a fast shutter speed. In both of ours though there's the intensity and obvious love for what they do.

Re: Project 3 "Emulation"

Let's try this again...(I apologize folks, but I tried the HTML code...edited it to take the direct link...and couldn't re-edit it..but here's the photo I tried to post earlier. Had to wait until I got home from work to figure out what was wrong and fix it.)

I don't think posting a link to the original with credit is out of order for this especially if the inspirational photo is not well known
