Camera formats

Brief

On the following web pages, I highlight some of the devices I have used in the recent past to capture images from a very old Medium Format Bencini camera that was my farthers to an old smartphone.

I have covered my use of some of the different formats within my blogs post which can be accessed via the above menu bar. However, I have never covered smartphone or drone photograp0hy so Bellow are a couple of people who have experimented with those formats. 

David LaChapelle

David LaChapelle aged 54 from North Carolina is a Fine art photographer and film director. His images have adorned the covers of many magazines, including Vanity Fair, The New York Times, The Face, GQ, Vogue Paris, and Vogue Italia.  

In 2014 David decided to use his smartphone (brand unknown) camera to capture images around Sydney Australia to help launch a new web-based project called MySecretOz. Below is a small selection of images from that shoot. 

Johnny Miller

“Unequal Scenes.” It is the brainchild of American Photographer Johnny Miller, who now lives in Cape Town. 22 years ago Aparthide ended in South Africa but using new drone technology Miller is showing the world the grim reality of how the old ways are still lingering.  Taking his inspire one up to heights of several hundred meters up, Miller has captured images of the stark contrast between South Africa’s “haves” and “have-nots.”

Below are a few of his amazing images.couple
