我的母校﹕香港培正中學

By admin, July 2, 2011 21:38

今天重返20年前的母校﹐掀起了大家無數的記憶。

01

在那充滿Art Deco氣息的樓梯上﹐曾經留下了你我的腳印

02
在模糊的記憶時空裡﹐我們的確有過那麼一段曾經在同一屋檐下的難忘經歷。

03

當年那些各奔東西的同學們﹐你們還記得大家嗎﹖

世界上最美好的是什麼﹖

我昨天終于完全感受到了﹐就是那份小朋友的童真﹐真的很Powerful!

背景音樂配以哥哥張國榮的那首“小明星”這就完美了﹗

今天看見一幅法國攝影大師Robert Doisneau在1950年的成名作﹐再次證明永恆的相片是靠攝影師的現場感直接造就出來的。 

就如Classical Music﹐為何莫扎特那麼多的曲子幾百年後還繪炙人口﹐就是因為他擁有與眾不同的靈感﹐所以常說藝術家總得先有些天賦也就是這個道理了。

跟打網球一樣﹐感覺這回事還真的沒法教﹐要親身領會了後技巧才能更上一層樓﹗

Probably The Most Sexy Tennis Girl in History

1977 Athena Tennis Girl

 

Mr Elliott who took the picture in 1976 while he was a photography student, used his then girlfriend Fiona Butler, 18, as a model. She borrowed a white tennis dress, a racket and balls and Martin took a photo of her from behind as she lifted her dress and touched her bare bum.

He sold the image to poster chain Athena and it went on to become one of the most famous images in the world. It was first published it as part of a calendar for the 1977 Silver Jubilee – the same year Virginia Wade achieved the Wimbledon ladies single title.

The picture – called Tennis Girl – went on to sell more than two million copes in Athena shops and continued to sell millions after the firm went bust in the 1990s. Mr Elliott retained the copyright to the image and made a fortune but Fiona was never paid a penny – but did eventually marry a millionaire.

He retired to Cornwall 11 years ago after living in Stourbridge and Portishead. He died peacefully aged 63 at his home in Perranwell Station, near Truro, Cornwall, late last month after a ten year battle with cancer.

His widow Noelle, who met her husband in 1987, said the picture had actually hindered his career because no one would commission him as they feared he would be too expensive.

“Martin sold the image to Athena – who turned it into a poster – but he retained copyright. I am still getting royalties to this day,” she said.

“They are only a few pence now but because it has sold all over the world we have done well out of it.

“Martin always felt he had the good times before the business became overrun with image-conscious people and cut-throat deals.”

She added: “He had a marvellous sense of humour and was a great joker. He always thought he would get better. He loved Cornwall and was very content.”

He studied at the Birmingham School of Photography and he took the image at the uni’s tennis courts in Edgbaston.
Speaking before his death he said: “I can remember it was an afternoon in September at the end of the long hot summer.

“It was over very quickly. I only took one roll of film, which is pretty feeble for a photographer and I just hoped I’d got the shot.”

Mrs Butler, now 50, later married millionaire Ian Walker and the couple live with their children in Stourport, Worcestershire. Speaking in 2007, she said that, despite not being paid, she was proud of her iconic status.

“I can remember the day quite clearly. When the picture got so popular I was quite amused that something taken that afternoon could get so big,” she said.

“It became one of those pictures that everyone knows and everyone’s seen.

“I like the fact that it’s got a bit of an air of mystery about it. I think that’s what helped with its longevity, because people kept wondering if it was anyone famous.”

She added: “I remember going to a party with my husband and people were saying ‘is that the girl in the photograph?’. They looked me up and down and said ‘I don’t think so’. My son’s headmaster once said to me that he used to have it on his wall at university. I’ve got no objections to it whatsoever.

“My children have never been upset about it. It’s really nothing that anyone could be offended by. It’s just a bit of fun. ‘I think it was banned in a couple of countries but really I don’t think there was anything to get upset about.

“It was just a picture of a very sort of ordinary girl and there’s something in that that appeals to people.”

日本加油﹗

終于學會了如何使用Canon 7D + 電腦

By admin, January 31, 2011 13:35

搞了一個晚上,終于學會了如何使用Canon 7D + 電腦。

Canon EOS Ultility的Remote Shooting實在太好用了,攝影功力馬上得到了几何級的爆升,感覺還真Pro!

拍攝環境還是那麼簡簡單單﹐什麼燈都沒有打﹐就靠幾盞室內的白光燈。

這次能照出比較銳利的照片﹐覺得主要還是因為機器配套強勁彌補了環境的不足。之前還誤以為一定要Micro L鏡頭才能拍得出好車模﹐看來我這顆EF-S 17-55mm已經足夠﹐它還真萬能﹐什麼都行﹐無論從廣角風景到微距﹐真值得投資。

 Canon 7D+EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM﹐光圈收小到F22﹐ISO100﹐EV -1左右。

 當然這次有用PS來加強肌肉效果!

如果吸毒會毀一生,那麼玩攝影就會窮三代 (轉文)

By admin, October 28, 2010 10:00

14天前:明天是還在外地讀書的女朋友生日,買了個佳能50D套机【7800RMB】照點相片紀念。新机到手于是先跑到公園試拍,正在公園拍攝荷花的老頭說佳能成像太肉,尼康比較銳利,還現場用事實說話,于是后悔。

13天前:把佳能相机干脆當做禮物送給了女朋友,自己回家路上買了尼康D300s套机16-85mm【14800RMB】,另外還買了台筆記本電腦【5400RMB】,不然照片照出來沒得地方觀賞。

12天前:發現焦距不夠長,于是發現尼康AF-S DX VR 18-200mm F3.5-5.6GIF-ED【5600RMB】可以一鏡走天下,安逸,于是買了它。買來當天就去打鳥了。正巧遇見一些攝影家也在河邊拍白鶴,天呢,別人用的是尼康AF-S 300mm F4DIF-ED鏡頭,一問价格【8000RMB】,再看看別人的照片,如果不買一個怎么能拍出別人那樣的好看的照片呢,再次出血。本來有個尼康AF-S300mm F2.8 IF-ED II的,但是要三万多,買不起。

11天前:前兩天認識几個影友,說今天去拍模特人像,說85/1.4D【7000RMB】很不錯,買一個帶去會有很好的收獲,于是下手買了它。帶去拍攝的時候發現想拍兩張模特全身都比較困難。很懊惱。

10天前:我家妹妹說給她拍點照片做相冊,一想要是50/1.4mm【4000RMB】多好,于是馬不停蹄買了個。莫說,這回是比昨天照得更全面一些。但是總覺得比較肉。

9天前:單位喊我去幫忙拍攝生產車間的全貌,把全部鏡頭掏出來,都沒得一個超廣角,為了在領導面前顯示自己攝影很得行,于是立馬買了個12-24mm/F4G IF-ED【8200RMB】。

8天前:今天加入了攝影協會,攝影群,瀏覽攝影网站[攝影無忌];[太平洋攝影];[大眾攝影];[車壇影協];[新攝影];[蜂鳥网];[中國攝影家];[路客驢舍];[橡樹攝影]等等,發現一個問題,全畫幅相机可以在成像上得到更大优勢。主要的就是我昨天的車間拍攝最為例子。要是尼康D700【13800RMB】配上12-24mm/F4GIF-ED,省去乘那1.5的系數,還有那超高感光,那就是什么都解決了。通過网絡的學習,決定添置D700全畫幅是沒有錯的。于是把D300s套机送給了自家妹妹。

7天前:和攝影家協會的人員來往,听說D700和12-24;24-70;70-200是全世界最絕配的搭檔。都上全畫幅單反了,不上牛頭那怎么行?由于太貴,所以敗了個水貨24-70/2.8【12000RMB】,70-200/2.8【14500RMB】。

6天前:買了不少攝影書,訂了不少報紙刊物【1200RMB】,上班下班都在看,研究軟件處理照片,結識了一些攝影發燒友。

5天前:發燒友們的照片,几乎都是定焦拍攝的,變焦靠走,成像質量上等一流。确實這些天來用了不少錢,手頭緊張,据說定焦也用得比較少,于是就買了兩個副厂的貨,一個是适馬30mm F1.4 EX DC HSM鏡頭【3300RMB】,一個騰龍SP AF 180mm F3.5 Di LD-IF鏡頭【8300RMB】,在圖麗鏡頭里面确實是選不出一個定焦。

4天前:發現适馬鏡頭照片色彩偏綠,銳度和飽和度都比較惱火,騰龍照出來一片灰調,卡白卡白的。這才明白一個道理,為什么發燒友們用的都是原裝定焦頭,真是貴得所值。那現在怎么辦,只有再選原厂鏡頭。再次敗了尼康AF DX Fisheye 10.5mm F2.8G ED鏡頭【5500RMB】,尼康 Ai AF 18mm F2.【8100RMB】,尼康AF-S Micro NIKKOR 60mm F2.8G ED鏡頭【5500RMB】。還有個确實不敢買的尼康PC-E NIKKOR 24mm f/3.5D ED鏡頭,這可是個移軸鏡頭,拍建筑非常好,兩万多塊錢喲。

3天前:差中長焦遠射定焦頭,再次購得尼康Ai AF DC 135mm F2D鏡頭【7200MRB】,外加前几天買的300/F4已經夠了,像尼康AF-S 600mm F4G ED VR鏡頭确實不敢買,市場价九万多。

2天前:听說鏡頭保護不好容易發霉,需要干燥放置,于是買了個電子干燥箱,花了我一個月的工資【4000RMB】。中午听說路客驢舍戶外組織爬山露營以及攝影采風活動,于是帶上了相机器材和露營裝備等物出去了。

昨天:由于前一天參加活動,相机太重,導致脖子扭傷及病倒。去醫院看病和保健按摩花費【250RMB】,出院回家路上順便去了趟攝影器材城,給商家講述自己病的情況,結果喊我買了卡片机佳能G11【4350RMB】。本來分別有2万多元的徠卡M8和六万多的徠卡M9的,可錢包里面怎么也沒得那么多錢。

今天:女朋友放假來到我家,打開她背包一看,除了我送她的佳能套机外包包里面多了17-40/4.0【4800RMB】;50/1.8【700RMB】;70-200/2.8L is USM【13000RMB】外加一些配件和包包【2800RMB】,當場我就傻了,她把這些年的獎學金全部用光了。打電話喊妹妹回來陪未來嫂子耍,妹妹說正在器材城看全畫幅相机,當場耳鳴頭暈。

 

PS:功夫不負有心人,下午一年多沒有聯系的出版社編輯朋友說來家拷點我的照片印到書上去,确實讓我高興了不少,走的時候問他出什么書,他說《錯誤的曝光与构圖》示范實例教科書,當時就想一腳架碾過去。

明天:以我現在每月2000元的支付能力計算,我將需要N年才能來完成還清在朋友那和銀行的借貸款。當然期望快點漲工資,我還有個尼康D3X沒有買【45000元】以及剛剛听別人介紹的瑪米亞DM28中畫幅數碼相机【十一万左右】。

未來:我也要四處宣傳玩單反相机的好。

 

PS:一年后,和女友結婚去了外地工作,家里房屋拆遷,70歲的奶奶在家把所有相机鏡頭以每斤5毛錢賣給了廢鐵收購站。唯獨還剩下一個佳能50/1.8,收廢鐵的說全是塑料,不要!
