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﹗

一切以感覺為上﹗

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!
