JERRY SCHATSBERG – MAN OF THE HOLLYWOOD REVIVAL

American photographer and filmmaker Gerald “Jerry” Schatzberg is known as the author of the famous Bob Dylan photo from the cover of the album Blonde on Blonde, as well as the owner of the Cannes Golden Palm Branch for the movie “Scarecrow” with Al Pacino.

However, his forty-year career is more than a list of major achievements, especially since it will take a lot of time to list them.

Jerry Schatzberg – one of the main characters of the Hollywood cinema “Renaissance” of the 70s of the twentieth century. Together with like-minded colleagues and colleagues, he returned to the cinema the importance of introspective storytelling. The emotions of his heroes are restrained, but only for later to be released as brightly as possible. At the same time, Schatzberg’s creative method is not like the “palette” used by contemporaries – Italian-Americans Scorsese, Cimino, de Palma. Continue reading

What is a diaphragm?

Aperture is easy. In a nutshell, the diaphragm is a device in the lens that measures the amount of light.

For a better understanding of the operation of such a device, I will give an example from life. When people look at the sun, they squint their eyes, that is, they reduce the gap through which light passes. If people had not squinted, the sun would have burned the retina of their eyes with their strong light. At night, you need to do the opposite – open your eyes wider to capture more light, while the pupils also expand. Eyes with large pupils have many animals that need to see well at night.

Often the aperture is also called ‘aperture’ or ‘aperture’ or ‘relative aperture’ or ‘number F‘. These concepts are strongly interconnected and for many photographers are synonymous. But among them there are small differences described below. Continue reading

What is exposure

Shutter speed is the time that the camera captures the image. When photographing, light is read using the camera’s matrix or using a film. When we do not take a picture, the film or matrix is ​​closed by the shutter. During shooting, the shutter opens and the film or matrix receives an image from the lens. The amount of time until the shutter is open and there is an exposure.

No, the article is not about alcohol, the article is about the photographic concept of aging. Exposure is easy. In phones and digital cameras (soap dishes) there is no mechanical shutter as such. There, the shutter is the on / off matrix. But the principle of operation is fully preserved with the only difference, instead of raising the mirror and the shutter curtains, the soap dish matrix is ​​simply updated. Now fashionable mirrorless cameras, for example Sony ILCE-7 do not have a mirror, but they have a real mechanical shutter, which gives that very nice click of the shutter.
