What Photographers Can Learn From the Old Masters

October 3, 201764 min
Photography and painting have much in common. Both the painter and photographer are concerned about composition, lighting, color, and story. Photography is a relatively recent invention compared to painting. When the first photograph was taken in 1826 by Joseph Niepce, the practice of the painter already had a history developed over many centuries. Truly, the craft and art of photography owes much to the legacy of the old masters.   Mentioned in this episode: What Landscape Painting Can Teach Photographers–by Geoff Wittig http://theonlinephotographer.typepad.com/the_online_photographer/2010/12/landscape-painting.html The Psychology of the "Decisive Moment"–by John Suler http://truecenterpublishing.com/photopsy/decisive_moment.htm   This episode is sponsored by: CrumplePop - Premiere Pro and Final Cut Pro X Plugins: http://crumplepop.com StoryBlocks.com - Uncage Your Creativity.
