a week in photography

Some people say photography gets in the way of appreciating the real world, but I’d argue that photographers see the world more clearly and notice things that mere mortals do not. For example, few people would ever register the tiny details that we present in our feature on close-up photography, unless they were looking with a photographer’s eyes. These stunning pictures are the winners of the inaugural Close-Up Photographer of the Year (CUPOTY), set up and run by AP’s very own Tracy Calder. I hope they inspire you to look for subjects to shoot and enter for next year’s CUPOTY. Also this week we have a retrospective about one of my favourite photographers, fashion legend Norman Parkinson. I hope you love these classic images as much as I do.…

tate modern

This mono interior scene was uploaded to our Twitter page using the hashtag #appicoftheweek. It was taken by photographer Stu Meech. He tells us, ‘I've recently started taking architectural photos to fill lulls in landscaping owing to a lack of decent weather conditions. This was taken on my first trip out at the Tate Modern in London. I've always wanted to photograph this iconic staircase and I opted to work from above to make use of the mix of curved lines from the staircase and straight lines from the walls. I then went for a heavy black & white conversion when I processed it later.' IMAGES MAY BE USED FOR PROMOTION PURPOSES ONLINE AND ON SOCIAL MEDIA © STU MEECH…

big picture

THE WINNER of this year's Black & White Photo Project, as part of International Garden Photographer of the Year (IGPOTY), is Petar Sabol, a professional photographer from Croatia. His image, ‘Night Butterfly', was originally shot in colour. Petar says of his image, ‘I realised that the shapes, textures and backgrounds were much more suited to black & white. After the conversion, the transformation of the image was quite profound.' For his image, Petar receives £500, and it will be published in the new IGPOTY 13 book, as well as feature in the flagship exhibition at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, in February 2020. IGPOTY runs four projects per year, which are smaller standalone competitions that give photographers the chance to explore specific themes and skills. See more at igpoty.com.…
