The Genius of Photography - BBC

posted on 30th of july, 2011

I bought the DVD "The Genius of Photography", a BBC documentary the other day and have started watching it. Very interesting. I have seen another documentary DVD on the LIFE magazine photographers. I think that will be the next to get after watching this one.

I've watched two episodes now. There are six in total and they are giving me a) lots of ideas and b) some good historical knowledge on where certain styles of photography were developed from. By coincidence I found a book of the series in my local bookshop but I think the DVD is good as it really brings the material to life and in some cases shows the test shots of the photographer and then the 'famous' shots; and contrasts them.

About me

I love travelling to new destinations aiming to capture the essence of the people, place and time. I particularly like black and white photography in certain instances as it captures the mood and texture of the place or person. At other times colour is necessary to show the vibrancy, life and energy. Please have a look at my website if you would like to see more images.
