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.

AMAZING FISHEYE LENS WORLD

Fisheye lenses have a very short focal length, which gives them an extremely wide viewing angle. This means that the image is becoming wider than realistically possible. The edges of the image are distorted, making the photo spherical. Everything that is nearby becomes very large in the frame, and everything at a distance becomes extremely small.

Such lenses have a focal length of less than 12 mm. The smallest focal length for them is 7.5 mm. They are available for both SLR and mirrorless cameras. In addition, there is also a selection of special fisheye for smartphones.

Often distortion can be annoying. But this is not necessary at all – with proper use, a fish eye can be visually pleasing and even preferable to a conventional wide-angle lens. Try using distorted lines and curves to bring the viewer’s eye to the right place in the image. Continue reading

These include solar poles. Landscape photographer Toshiki Nakanishi shared some tips for shooting them using examples taken in the Hokkaido region of Bi-Furano. (Toshiki Nakanishi, Digital Camera Magazine.)
