Photographer Richard Burbridge, Italian artist Maurizio Anzeri and stylist Robbie Spencer created these string art portraits that combine black and white photography and intricate string work to make the images vibrant, 3D pieces. I am really digging this photo embroidery trend.
Michael Penn - Philadelphia 471 In this photo the aperture was low to create a depth of field. It has a bokah effect where the background is blury, creating a sharp, focused effect on the phone. The shutter speed I imagine was on a low setting, capturing the movement in the background therefore inhancing the stillness and mystery of the abandoned phone.
Documentary photography. Documentary photography is another application of photography. It is commonly used to document historic or important events such as War photography. Here is an example by Stephen Shames. This photograph is documenting the dramatic life style of a homeless child. (Documentary photos of the life in the Bronx.)
I really like this image. I like how the face is distorted through the glass and i feel like i can use this in my own photography and develop it further by putting drops of food colouring in water and putting that in front of someone's face.
