I now present part two of my Best Photography on the Web series. It takes me a little while between these posts because I find them slowly over time as opposed to searching for them constantly. Before we get started with this issue here is the standard disclaimer:
BE WARNED! Photographers take pictures of places, things and people. Sometimes naked people.
If you are sensitive to nude men, naked women or wet fruit please move on to another article.
Dr. Jiang’s stunning photos of China are enough to make me want to visit just to see these places in person; and his mastery of light, reflections and composition are simply impressive.
Scott has a beautiful photography Web site. I rarely make commentary on site design specifically, but I’d say that this is one of the best examples of what browsing an online gallery should be like. (The only problem is his site is not search engine friendly so you probably wouldn’t have found it without reading about it here.)
On top of that, Scott’s photography captured my attention and would not let go. He has a wide range of photos including nature, people and abstract – all of which he has obviously mastered.
In addition to being a professional photographer Carel is better know for his acting career which includes the roles of Lurch on the Addams Family and Mr. Homn in Star Trek The Next Generation.
When it comes to photography though, his specialty comes in the form of 3D or Spherical Panoramas. This technique involves stitching a series of photographs together to create an interactive image that viewers can move around within and explore.
He’s put his skills to good use because some of the images on his Web site are stunning!
Heck, even his own self portrait (this one right here) kicks ass! You have to have some mad skills to pull that one off.
Kris and I are talking about the possibility of getting together for a shoot somewhere, though I think I dropped the ball what with all of my travel lately. (Sorry Kris!) Hopefully one day we’ll manage to hook up and find out what he can do to make me look like a star!
His range is quite broad, from macro photography to landscape to people, but each of his photos are technically excellent and aesthetically interesting.
Also, make sure and visit his Flickr gallery.
Martin has a very specific niche. He takes high speed photos of water droplets doing amazing things, and has even provided some tutorials on his personal blog about how he accomplishes these photos.
The basic gist is that Martin uses high speed flash photography along with excellent timing and thousands of photographs to capture and share these captivating images.
Well, thats it for this installment. After I’ve gathered up several more I’ll be back with Part 3!
