Our #ThursdayTheme last week was all about the action shots. Check them out!
#FridayFoto is this action shot from Stefano Calderan which was chosen for pure impact.
Here’s what Julie had to say about Stefano’s’s image:
“When I asked Stefano to talk us through his lighting for this he showed us the ‘before’ shot which was taken at the beach in bright sun. This is actually a blend of three different images! If you’d like to have a look – check out Stefano’s page.
There are some photography snobs around who turn their nose up at those who create their finished piece like this using photoshop. They don’t understand why a photographer wouldn’t just try to create their vision ‘in camera’. I say they simply don’t understand the definition of ‘creativity’. Imagine we all had the same methods and visions? Who’s to say that epic photography skills are more worthy than epic photoshop skills? **steps off soapbox**
I love this image. It’s a fabulous creation. The action, the colours, the expression, the story. Whether you stop to drink in its fabulousness OR pick holes in the photoshop skills (you’ll struggle) – you still stopped, right? That’s what it’s all about.
Thank you Stefano Calderan for sharing this with us all!”
