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.

ALL SHADOWS OF THE RAINBOW, OR HOW THE COLOR AFFECTS THE PHOTO

In the technical aspect, color can be complex, but in the artistic aspect, this is one of the most important parts of the image, affecting the emotions of the viewer, unlike any other element of the photo.

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
