EDWARD WESTON SEEING PHOTOGRAPHICALLY PDF

September 18, at pm This reading began with information about Edward Weston. It explains that he favored simplicity in photographs and did not approve of editing his images, and preferred the pre-visualization of an image. They were deemed unconventional and excluded from museums and so they started their own exhibitions. Although creative expressionism can create limitations, I believe that it is still a useful tool in expressing oneself as the reading states.

I had never before thought about the ways in which the growth of photography has affected the art of painting. As Weston states, "Photography has or will eventually, negate much painting—for which the painter should be deeply grateful; relieving him, as it were, from certain public demands: representation, objective seeing.

As Weston discusses the technical aspects of photography and how some believe that "a straight photograph was purely the product of a machine and therefore not art," I love how he compared this belief to musicians. I thought this was a great comparison but it also made me think. Now a days, a lot of music is edited with the technology available. In such cases, is the music considered art? The same concept can also be applied to photography because every image can be edited with programs such as photoshop.

Before taking this course, I had never really thought about how intricate and detailed the process of taking a picture is. I simply used to take pictures for fun, without thought as to the "nature of the recording process and the nature of the image.

The same goes for the subject matter and the composition of the photograph in addition to the lighting, camera angles, focus, etc. I think I can actually appreciate it more now that I have a greater understanding of the elements of photography and the abilities it takes to take a great picture.

Recensão critica da obra de Edward Weston : Seeing Photographically (I)

Washington, D. Photo by La Tanya S. It is learning to see photographically — that is, learning to see his subject matter in terms of the capacities of his tools and processes, so that he can instantaneously translate the elements and values in a scene before him into the photograph he wants to make. But I only came to grasp its meaning this year as I was taking a digital photography class. Weston urged photographers to carefully frame their subjects.

But I have started with art as subject matter, though I have been asked to write my viewpoint on "Pictorial Photography. I would say, "Let the pedants decide that! Photography following this line can only be a poor imitation of already bad art. Nor can the painter begin to equal the photographer in his particular field. William Blake wrote: "Man is led to believe a lie, when he sees with, not through the eye. But in a photograph this way of seeing is legitimate, logical. Instead, the physical quality of things can be rendered with utmost exactness: stone is hard, bark is rough, flesh is alive, or they can be made harder, rougher, or more alive if desired.
