Everybody is now able to pimp his own images on photoshop and to sprinkle instagram effects here and then. But nothing compares to a good eye for framing and a unique photo process (two Ebony field cameras, working with plates instead of film) : it can bring a well known sport event totally elsewhere. Spiky pastel mountains and bright partisan colors blend pretty well… By Mark Leary.
The Col du Tourmalet is the most notoriously tough of all the stages of the Tour de France, taking riders up to nearly 7,000 feet above sea level in some of the steepest and most severe elevations in competitive road cycling. For this reason alone it is legendary among cycling enthusiasts and remains one of the most traversed stages of the Tour – steeped in the kind of history that provokes reverence from even the most casual cycle fan.
Enough of the bike geekery though, more relevant to us is the striking beauty of the scenery in the surrounding area and Mark Leary’s exceptional ability to capture it alongside the fervour of the crowds. A life-long Tour fan, Mark’s been looking for an excuse to photograph it for years. No big deal, loads of people have – but Mark differs from his peers in his choice of hardware, two Ebony field cameras that function using plates instead of film.

Tout le monde est maintenant en mesure de “pimper” ses propres images sur photoshop et/ou de les saupoudrer d’effets Instagram. Mais rien ne se compare à un bon oeil pour le cadrage et un processus de photo unique bien maitrisé (ici deux caméras Ebony, utilisant des plaques plutôt qu’un film). Mélange fluide de montagnes pointues pastels et de teintes partisanes vives. Par Mark Leary.

As with many campaigns this season, Fendi’s spring 2011 campaign follows in the footsteps of fall 2010 with Anja Rubik in a picturesque setting akin to a work of art. Photographed by Karl Lagerfeld, the Fendi woman isn’t afraid of bold colors or dramatic shapes for the spring as shown by these uniquely stunning images.
Found at Fashion Gone Rogue.

Il y a quelque chose de magique avec les photographies de Sander Meisner. Peut-être que c’est le mélange de flash, de longue exposition, de lumières de nuit, de couleurs inattendues … J’adore.
