The First Photography Event of LO Art Center Witnesses ‘The Artist’s Lens’

Orion Art Center’s very first show about photography explored talents of people who were fond of photography.

Photographers, professionals and non-professionals were seen editing their photos with skills and dexterity. There were many school children who took lots of photos using their cell phones as well.

The event exhibited the famous ‘The Artist’s Lens’ which was actually the competition amongst the works of eighteen people. All the photographs were either in film or digital format including monochromic or color prints.

Alana Hart, the board member of the famous Art Center, seemed very happy with the response. She said the excitement and the passion that people showed for submitting their photographs made her very happy. People actually loved the show, and they were so much passionate that some of them submitted multiple photographs. From school children to aged people, everyone seemed to have a great time. “And that’s the interesting thing, that it’s such a diverse topic,” Hart said. “It’s really beautiful to see all of the ages come together.” Continue reading →

Reuters bans RAW photo submission

News and photography agency Reuters has recently issued a statement triggering an outright ban on photographs captured and handed in RAW format.

Freelance contributors have instead being asked to only submit images that were processed and stored as JPEG inside the camera.
As per Reuters, there are 2 reasons for this action – one, there’s the matter of alacrity: RAW photos required to be processed by the photographer and that takes a lot of time – and when someone is reporting on a breaking story, one does not get much time; secondly, Reuters wants its snaps to closely reflect reality (journalistic), and it is thoughtful that some RAW snaps are being processed to a point where they do not stay real.
Speaking to PetaPixel, a Reuters spokesperson said that as photojournalists working for the world’s largest international multimedia news provider, Reuters Pictures photographers work in line with their Photographer’s Handbook as well as the Thomson Reuters Trust Principles. As eyewitness accounts of events covered by dedicated and responsible journalists, Reuters Pictures must reflect reality. While they aim for photography of the highest aesthetic quality, their goal is not to artistically interpret the news.

Instagram new photo collage application

Even though ‘collaging’ photo has been quite popular on Instagram for sometime now, if you wanted to blend multiple photos into a single square frame, then you had to depend on to a 3rd party application such as Diptic or Pic Collage to do it.

One negative aspect of these 3rd party platforms is that they often had a limited number of styles to break the frame and you had to apply a border to break your snapshots. Today Instagram started a photography collage application of their own named Layout that is presently available just for iOS.

When opened, the very first thing the application asks you to do is to select the snaps that you would prefer to add in your collage – a great departure from the 3rd party applications that asks you to select your grid first. Users will be able to select up to nine snapshots and when you select – the app will give you options as how to arrange the snaps. It also eliminates the borders that offer a clearer look.
