Ok…So the key word in the title “The Olympics Site” is the word “Site”. It really isn’t much of anything now, although come summer 2012 presumably it will be bustling with energy and people from around the world. At the moment it is very still and slightly eerie. You can see the stadium in the distance but once you get within 20 meters of the site entrance security guards come out and tell you that there are no photographs allowed, staring at you menacingly until you leave. Incidentally I have very few pictures of it….I guess that I will have to survive with only a memory of a wet day and an angry security guard.
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
Photographer Guy Rhodes was one the many photographers who covered the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics last February, and among the things that he packed for the trip were a Crown Graphic 4x5 camera and 34 sheets of Tri-X 320.
The Olympic Park in Munich hosts ‘Von Hagens’ by Marco Sanges, an eerie yet artistic exploration of plastinator Gunther von Hagens’ work. The photo exhibit will run alongside the plastinator’s 'BODY WORLDS’ display from June 12 to October 5.
