Fotografía y palabra. Nautilus ( Homenaje a E. Weston). Photography and word. Tribute to Edward Weston. Manipulated by GIMP


Edward Weston descubrió a todas las formas que esconden pequeños elementos de la vida animal y vegetal como las conchas y las verduras.


Nautilus is a black-and-white photograph taken by Edward Weston in 1927 of a single nautilus shell standing on its end against a dark background. It has been called "one of the most famous photographs ever made" and "a benchmark of modernism in the history of photography."
In February, 1927, Weston visited the studio of local Carmel artist Henrietta Shore and noticed several paintings she had made of sea shells. Only one of these paintings is known to still exist (as of January, 2011), and it shows a stark and solitary nautilus on a dark field, not unlike Weston's resulting photographs.He made it clear in his writings that the paintings had a profound effect on him:

GIMP

Es un programa relativamente sencillo de descarga libre, muy apto para entretenerse en la manipulación fotográfica.
Tiene la ventaja, además, que hay unas tutoriales muy buenas de la Universidad de Málaga que facilitan su aprendizaje.
En cualquier caso, es mi opinión personal, la fotografía manipulada es .....una manipulación de la foto, por tanto otra cosa, se puede llamar, como la denomina Joan Fontcuberta "pintar con píxeles"

It is a relatively simple, very suitable for entertainment on the photo manipulation program free download.
It has the additional advantage that there are some very good tutorials at the University of Málaga that facilitate learning.
In any case, it's my personal opinion is ..... manipulated photography photo manipulation, so something else can be called, such as Joan Fontcuberta called "painting with pixels"

"The hour is late, the light is failing, I could not expose another film. So there stands my camera focused, trained like a gun, commanding the shells not to move a hair's breath. And death to anyone who jars out of place what I know shall be a very important negative."
Edward Weston - The Daybooks
