Get Insprired


Beginning Place

JP Terlizzi (USA)

http://www.jpterlizziphotography.com/

I don’t know most you simply I am always looking for inspiration.  Granted it somewhat difficult to discover in these trying days.  So, I look everywhere and so I go out using all the proper social distancing I try to find something new.

A few weeks ago I received a Press Release for the winners of a  competition by
All About Photography
and the topic Shapes.  I took a scrap of time to look at the entries and though to myself that this is a good idea and that maybe yous’d relish seeing the winning images.  First as an inspiration equally well as a take chances to leave and try to shoot some
Shapes
yourself.


Second Place

Wendel Wirth (USA) Wood III from the series “This is the Place”

These winning images were chosen from twenty-5 photographers (from 11 dissimilar countries) for their different approach to the idea of Shapes. Their work is diverse: documentary, architecture, nudes, yet life, abstractions… and utilise different techniques & perspectives simply each one showcases a unique point of view.

Songyuan Ge (China) oma2 from the series Meaningless
I intend to use my artworks to relax people's pressure. This series of photos are taken in San Francisco. The subject in these pictures are the details of architecture. Modern buildings have grown tremendously with the growth of population, and people's pressure comes from the pressure of life, so I think modern architecture has an inseparable relationship with people's pressure. Therefore, I want to remind people the most beautiful thing is around us.

Modern buildings have grown tremendously with the growth of population, and people’s pressure comes from the pressure level of life, and then I think mod architecture has an inseparable relationship with people’s force per unit area. Therefore, I want to remind people the virtually beautiful affair is around us.
Nicola Ducati (Italy) Steel Life: the privateers crew
Far east. Steel foundries. Life here has a circular flow, in the morning the workers get up early, there are those who prepare meals for the others in turn. The shifts begin and the men are all busy demolishing old shipwrecks coming from all over the world, the metal is cut, worked, melted and again transformed. Only the metal here changes life, not these men, they are always here, every day. Every day until the evening, until the siren sounds the arrival of sunset. https://nicoladucati.myportfolio.com/

Steel Life: the privateers crew
Far east. Steel foundries. Life here has a circular period, in the morning the workers go up early, there are those who gear up meals for the others in turn. The shifts begin and the men are all busy demolishing sometime shipwrecks coming from all over the world, the metal is cut, worked, melted and again transformed. But the metal here changes life, not these men, they are ever here, every twenty-four hours. Every twenty-four hours until the evening, until the siren sounds the inflow of dusk.

Axel Breutigam (Canada)
City Center Las Vegas, NV, USA Part of the ongoing series "Urban Geometry" Buildings and structures are fascinating to me, in particular, modern and contemporary designs. Exploring a building from all possible angles of view and finding the parts of the structure which lead to another layer of abstraction is what I am seeking visually. To do so it is often necessary to give space and put things into a reductive perspective. https://www.axelbreutigam.com/

Frank Lynch (Switzerland) Wall of Light, Osaka
This wall of light is in Osaka, Japan. It is the facade of a giant pachinko parlour. I discovered it late one night as I was looking for the Groovy Bar in the Nishinari Ward of Osaka. I spent 4 cold nights waiting patiently for passing pedestrians to walk into the photographs. After every session I rewarded myself by making my way on to the Groovy Bar for a feed of funk, blues and beer . . . http://lynch.ch/

Karine Coll (France) Diagonale perdue from the series Body geometry
A series in black and white, ethereal, in which the body becomes abstraction, a fragmented, transformed mass, depicted only by way of a play of lines, curves, folds, shadows. Here the elusive and delicate body takes on a whole new dimension, leading the eye into a geometry of the flesh. A series in square format to force the simplicity of the look and widen the field of vision in an ideal geometry. https://www.karinecoll.com/

Diagonale perdue from the series Torso geometry
A series in blackness and white, ethereal, in which the body becomes brainchild, a fragmented, transformed mass, depicted but past fashion of a play of lines, curves, folds, shadows. Here the elusive and delicate torso takes on a whole new dimension, leading the eye into a geometry of the flesh. A series in square format to strength the simplicity of the look and widen the field of vision in an ideal geometry.
