Robert Capa

Robert Capa ‘s real name is Friedmann Endre Ernő .

Capa’s picture has different mood from the other photographers I have seen in the class.

It seems one of the reason  is because he is war photographer.

In war photographerhave to seize the moment and need to show the rest of the world.

It is not for beauty like annie leivovitz’s photography.

He takes picture to communicate with rest of the world for something that is happening on the other side of our world.

It really sends out how war is  rough and violent.

It really shows how the war is meaningless and worst thing in this world.

Annie Leibovitz

Annie Leibovitz is one of my favorite photographer of all time, because she really seize the moment.

I like how she sets up the scene for her photograph and it is not something just came out from nothing.

It has relation to the person who is in the picture. It describes the person in the flames.

also when she takes people’s body you can feel the vain and how musle flows in the picture.

Like when she took photograph of dancers.

More interestingly her picture has strange world in each. However, in her work I feel sets up is too much sometime and gives you artificial image.

[which is actually good?since entertainment industry is artificial and superficial, I guess.]

I felt Rick Smolan was enjoying being photographer.  It seems Leibovitz is opposite kind of photographer.

Annie Leibovitz seemed more intense and not relaxed like Rick Smolan was, for me.
