Surreal Self-Portraits by 22-Year-Old Artist Noell S. Oszvald who Began Photographing and Editing a Year Ago
I was astounded to learn that 22-year-old Hungarian photographer Noell S. Oszvald who lives and works in Budapest picked up a camera only a year ago. The gifted artist has shared only two dozen or so images with the world via Flickr but they already show an accomplished grasp of composition, editing and digital manipulation. Oszvald tells Alice over at My Modern Met that she chooses only to work in black and white because she finds color distracting from her conceptual ideas. She also mentions that she wishes for viewers of her work to find their own meaning and interpretation of each image. “I don’t want to tell people what to see in my images,” explains Oszland to My Modern Met, “this is the reason why I never really write any descriptions other than titles. It shows what I wish to express but everyone is free to figure out what the picture says to them. It’s very interesting to read so many different thoughts about the same piece of work.” See many more of her photographshere. (via my modern met)

Oh my, your photograph looks just like a painting! Has anyone ever said this about your photos? If they did it’s meant as a compliment, but what exactly does it imply? What relationship exists (beyond the obvious) between paintings and photographs and what can photographers learn from a skilled painter? These are the questions I’ve pondered for years. In my images shown here I used various techniques both with the camera and in post-production to blur the line between paintings and photographs. I don’t practice this technique all the time, but I can’t help wonder how the French Impressionist’s or Group of Seven would have interpreted the scene I just captured with a digital camera. A more extensive portfolio of my work is available on my website - www.wildernesswithin.ca.

Peter McNeil is a photographer, but he will confess that skills improvement for him is nurtured through a better understanding of painting styles from French Impressionism, Abstract Expressionism and even The Group of Seven. Find out if the Mona Lisa would have worked as a photograph and learn how to improve your own style through a better appreciation of a painter’s approach to individual expression.
Bio – Peter McNeil is a professional photographer based in York Region in the Greater Toronto Area. On top of practicing as a portrait and wedding photographer his real passion is the courses, workshops and photo excursions he provides throughout Ontario and Eastern Canada.

Frozen lakes, explosive plumes of smoke and sea, and massive robotic gardens… a collection of my favorite photos seen on Flickr the last few weeks. For many more images check out previous Flickr Finds. One of these days I’ll post these bi-monthly on a regular schedule I swear it. Probably.

A professional photographer today told of the moment he feared a nuclear bomb had gone off when the Russian meteorite tore through the sky as he took pictures of an idyllic rural scene.
Marat Akhmetaleyev, 31, had just set up his tripod when the space rock lit up the crisp, morning sky almost where his camera was pointing.
Despite trembling with shock, he instinctively started to snap away.

It’s not everyday you discover what could be your new favorite blog, but lucky for me that day was today. A Netherlands-based visual artist named Marinus has been at the helm of his blog Head Like an Orange since October 2011. He takes short excerpts of wildlife footage and crops, loops and times them to create mesmerizing moments of life. What you see here is just from the last few days, there are literally hundreds of these and they are well worth a few minutes of your day. Go now! (via jessica olin)
