The creation of a White and Black photograph by Olivier Du Tré

A few weeks ago, we featured Olivier Du Tré in our photographers of week section in this post.
Olivier’s work had some amazing black and white photography. I felt intrigued by his technique and asked him if he can share his know-how with ADIDAP Readers.

Olivier kindly agreed and wrote this tutorial that i’m proudly sharing with you. For further details, questions or feedback you can get in touch with Olivier on Twitter and Google+ , you can view all his work on his website as well.

I leave you to dive in the tutorial.

Photographer of the week: Girolamo Cracchiolo

Our photographer of the week is Girolamo Cracchiolo, a French photographer living in a city called “Chambéry”.
Girolamo does not consider himself a professional photographer, but a keen photographer.
In Girolamo’s own words :

“A photo, in my opinon will never perfectly represent reality, because reality is constantly moving and so the picture becomes a snapshot in time.

Reality has an odour and sounds, aspects that can never be captured in the static silence of a photograph.

This is why I do not worry about making my photographs realistic. In fact I focus on conveying emotion through my photography. If I can get the viewer to sense the emotions I feel when looking at a beautiful sunset or admiring the architecture of a majestic church, then I have successfully achieved my goal. “

I leave you to enjoy 10 of Girolamo’s selected work. Don’t forget to drop by his website for the full collection and connect via Facebook and Google+
