Joe McNally interview

  Nikon in South Africa caught up with internationally acclaimed photographer, Joe McNally, whose career has spanned more than 30 years and included assignments in over 60 countries. Joe is best known for his ability to produce technically and logistically complex assignments with expert use of colour and light. Brett Florens: What advice would you give the young Joe McNally twenty years ago? JM – I don’t know if I would have listened back then, but the best advice that I would have given myself would have been to diversify. I think that is really important advice for any young photographer. Reach out to a wide variety of clients. If you’re a general assignment photographer, try and establish clients who are not just in the editorial realm, but also commercial and corporate players. Stay on top of trends.

Black and white photography with Nikon

For the month of March we have been focusing on the art of black and white photography. We asked a few of our photographers to share their tips and tricks on how to take the perfect black and white shot.   Black and white is a style of photography that lets you simplify your images. It allows you to  focus more on your subject matter and lighting. There are no colour tones to worry about;  it’s a playground for shapes and light/dark tones. To create dramatic black and white images don’t neglect paying attention to your shadows  just as much as your light. The one can’t live without the other! Not to mention there is a certain classic beauty to great black and white photography, something we should all try every now & then. Seagram Pearce Photography           My tip for shooting black and white is to light the shot in a way that gives you nice contrast between your shadows and highlights. Gavin Kleinschmidt
