Steven Gerrard celebration photograph gets Kevin Quigley a top photography honor

Kevin Quigley has been honored with the Premier League photograph of the year award for clicking snaps of Steven Gerrard’s well talked about celebration away at Fulham previous English Premier League season. All top flight commissioned photographers were asked to submit their favorite snap of the campaign that were then judged by a panel of experts that has top names like Dave Shopland, Martin Tyler, Alan Sparrow and Andy Dunn.
Kevin got the gong for saving the intense celebrations of Liverpool captain in his camera at Craven Cottage during stoppage time of 3 – 2 victory back in February. The Sportsmail photographer was intelligibly thrilled to have been recognized.
He told that he is highly honored to win this award, this is the first photography award I have won so would like to thank the judges and Barclays for having this competition each year.
Fulham is really a magnificent ground to work at. This place has some old features that make for lovely snaps. His colleague Graham Chadwick won this same award with a tremendous remote camera click a few years back; and it seems like it is a lucky ground for them.
He told that he sat there with his technician Ian, who edited his snaps that evening. Ian had just ran out to be beside him as they were on edition because it was a 7:45pm kick off and it was the 2nd or 3rd minute of injury time when the penalty was awarded. He was sitting in front of the Liverpool fans because he felt Liverpool were going to win the match and of course celebrate in front of their travelling fans who had a nightmare journey to and from the game as the trains were delayed.

Instagram adds new photography tools

Instagram, a photo filter app, owned by Facebook; and now used by over two hundred million users. However, Instagram is not just staying as another photo filter application. On Tuesday, this popular photo sharing app rolled out a series of new updates that bring it in line with the characteristics of a traditional digital camera. App users who update to Instagram 6.0 would find ten brand new tools that would allow them to edit snaps for things such as warmth, saturation, brightness and contrast.
In keeping with the traditional interface of the app, the new tools are very simple: black buttons with white icons. Still, the results are quite powerful, offering the users the type of imaging potentiality that was once reserved for the likes of Adobe’s industry leading Photoshop software.
Till now, a lot of Instagram users have clicked snaps with their smartphones and embellished these pictures with a series of filters. Unlike the old – shoot, apply, share theme, now the experience would be a bit closer to real photography. Now, it has something that needs a bit more time and attention; something that Instagram users are not really accustomed to.
It appears that (with other popular applications like Camera+ and Litely) Instagram’s new updates is way to keep its users in one place. Now, people would not have to go to other apps to get the desired result. The quick edit options would also keep it user friendly.

Hungary introduces new photography law

Starting from today, a brand new law in Hungary makes it illegal to click snaps without receiving permission from everyone in the snap. This civil code makes the job of photojournalists and street photographers more complicated and allowing a whole lot of litigation.

This news was first revealed in a leading UK based newspaper. This new law just expands the present code that stops t he publication of snaps without permission. According to reports, the officials of the justice ministry stated that it is merely codifies existing court practice.

However, Hungarian photographers do not agree with this new rule. They call this new rule as vague and obstructive. The actual trouble lies with that word as civil code do not specify what exactly is considered illegal and what is not.

Speaking to a UK based newspaper, a Hungarian photogrphert told that the rules are not clear to him. There are even reports that judges are even privately stating that they have no idea how to judge cases under this new regulation.

The primary issues with the new law are 2 – fold. Well, 1st the code clears the door for any person on the road to register complaints anytime a journalist clicks a snap with them in it. And 2nd, this code further complicates taking snaps of police. Already, journalists have to blur polices’ faces when they click their snaps. Even this law has been under criticism because it keeps police to keep journalists as well as public from recording their actions.

Old City exhibit

Ara Guler, the Turkish photography master’s exhibit named Old City in Istanbul’s Merkur Gallery with colorful views of the city which have not been showed together before, would stay open till Wednesday.

Istanbul, being the city of his birthplace as well as his dreams, Guler’s exhibit has a wide collection of pictures of the city – starting from wooden bay windowed house to fishing boats to bouldering streets to cobblestones pavements – a whole lot of scenes from this Turkish city could be spotted in this exhibit.

Guler told that if his photography of Istanbul had not existed, those old days, would have been forgotten today. There is nothing left from the Old City. The city’s aesthetic has altered. Civilization is going forward, but people have lost sense of beauty.

Following the fashion of great social documentary tradition, Ara Guler invariably intersects literature and cinema with each other in his snaps. He now has a distinguished spot in the world history of photograph. The Photography Annual Antalogy in the United Kingdom had declared him as one of best 7th photographers of world. In the year 1962, he accepted the title Master of Leica from Germany that was offered just to few photographers. Continue reading →
