Seeing the World through Allen Myers

allenGetting out in Wolfville in November I met Allen Myers who was in town for the Devour Film Festival in Wolfville. Allen's film Col Di Rocca was shown, made in Vendemmai Italia. Allen was hanging up his outdoor exhibit which immediately caught my attention! Allen Myers is a unique and talented photographer, film maker, writer and humanitarian. On January 15th, 2006, he made a life changing decision to change something in the world. With a backpack of clothes, a camera and a journal he headed to Turino Italy which was the first of many destinations.

nomadsight_travel_photography_motion_3The artistry and vision of his work takes shape as he weaves himself into the communities in which he discovers. He works with, lives with and feels with the peoples he later captures on film and in stories. Nomadsight is a temporary street art instalment of world photography, it moves from city to city and in the manner grows in its collection. Nomasight.com is a photography travel blog about Allen's global adventures.

Supported by the loving people of the earth, these photographs tell the stories.
~ Allen Myers

Bridging the native Mi'kmaq cultures of Canada and the aboriginal people in Colombia,

Peter's passion and spiritual journey is apparant in his photographic vision; a connection

to this powerful roots of his identity. Peter?s descendants in Newfoundland were the

Beothuck people and thought to be extinct; as a Qalipu Mi?kmaq he finds meaning from the

relationships of the earth and people and this translates into the powerful and stunning

images he will present. Most of us have lived through an experience where we faced some

challenges and hardship. In exploring our questions and reflecting on our relationship with

the world we can embrace meaningful insight. In loss and living, spirituality has provided

necessary meaning to capture the resilience and passion which guide his artistic vision.

Nikonian Northern Exposure #4

Welcome to Nikonian- Northern Exposure, with renowned photographer Peter Spence. Peter finds his inspiration, not by other photographers, but from the old masters of the Renaissance and Impressionist period. These old techniques will inspire your photography to a new level of awareness that you never experienced before. Peter will show how the world famous Henri Cartier Bresson applied his painting skills to create his incredible journey into photography.


From studying the art work of Van Gogh, painting on the left, Peter learned to look for the uncommon pictures that he took on the right above.  If Peter did not study the historical paintings he would have not been inspired in his photography today.  Therefore, this technique (of combining painting and photography which Henri Cartier Bresson  was favous for ) has taken Peter to new levels in improving his photography in different ways of inspiration.

Peter had always been a fan of Wolfe?s, so he was honored that his work stood out enough to garner an invitation by Wolfe to photograph the seminar. However, as Peter says, Everything that can go wrong, went wrong.
He needn?t have been concerned ? Peter is determined, quick on his feet, and doesn't let unforeseen events stand in the way of offering photographic excellence. As a result, Peter was fortunate enough to have a short interview with Wolfe regarding photography.
This show serves to be especially exciting. In addition to answering questions sent in by listeners, Peter uses his Boston experience to show photographers how to take a potentially disastrous event and turn it into a excellent photographic experience for all involved

Nikonians Northern Exposure podcast debut

nik-northen-expo_130.jpgWelcome to Peter Spence, host of our newest podcast series Nikonians Northern Exposure. Peter hails from Canada (which gives us a clue to the origin of the podcast series name).

His first podcast is now available for free download in the MP3 format, running just short of 30 minutes.

P_Spence_175.jpgThe first topic covers techniques for improving your image sharpness.

Peter draws on his experience as a workshop leader and a self-confessed “Photo Dad” now teaching his daughter how to take photos. He finds that the best way to teach is to ask his students what they are missing in their photography. Once he learns what the student is seeking to improve, he quickly goes into the “basics” mode.

He likes to urge his students to “take the next step” by turning off the full-auto program features on their cameras.

Regardless of your experience level, Peter’s relaxed style in describing the basics is sure to help improve your photography. Give it a listen today.

At some point in our life, all of us Professional Photographers need to go back to the basic of Photography, sometime we do become too comfortable in our Photography, so we do stop learning .So we need to become uncomfortable and approach the basic of Photography in a different light. Why we should to using prime lens more for better sharpness and composition, instead of just using a Zoom lens for every type of images. Why every photographer from beginners to professional, should be carrying a point-to -shoot Nikon camera with them all the time. Learn to see by listening with your ears and the important of using a tripod.

The Nikonians On Location #57 - Photograhper's Block

Blocked, bored, uninspired. Martin apologizes for this somewhat depressing podcast about photographer's block and his vague attempts to give advice to others when not even being able to get out of the hole himself.

Click here to download Nikonians On Location Podcast #57 (NPC-OL-2009-03-30; 17:57; MB, MP3 format).

Show Notes: March 30, 2009
But He manages to get a bit of advice over the counter like giving yourself assignments, shooting with shallow depth of field and an tip found on the web: the 100 step challenge. Walk, count steps and every 100, take a picture. You will find this and more tips on Photocritic.org.

Video supplement:
Uncommented pictures from a stale period in Martin's photography life - no speech, wise words or advice - just pictures and music.

The Nikonians On Location #54 - Snow and Models

Talking about two very different subjects: snowy landscapes and model shoots. First a small trip into the winter landscape, some talk about working on the images and then some thoughts on getting hold of models for model shoots.

Click here to download Nikonians On Location Podcast #54 (NPC-OL-2009-02-23; 36:31; 33.5MB, MP3 format).

Show Notes: February 23, 2009
Winter and snow can sometimes be different to shoot, and since we were suddenly attacked by snow and cold weather, I ventured out with my friend Asger to get the first (and hopefully last) shots of snowy landscapes this winter. We also shot some bird photos. But having spent the week getting an appointment with a couple of models for an upcoming shoot, I thought I'd devote some time to that subject too.

The sound file:

  1. A short forest walk
  2. Model thoughts
  3. Working on the images
  4. More model thoughts
  5. Bye

Video supplement:
Some of the winter pictures and some of Asger's bird images, but no models yet.

The Nikonians On Location #53 - Visual Noise

This week I focus on visual noise, which is the kind of clutter that meets the eye when looking in messy garages, on chaotic bulletin boards, at random collections of things.

Show Notes: February 16, 2009
I was introduced to the concept by Erin Fitzsimmons via Chase Jarvis - pictures so chaotic that they are almost beautiful. Chaos on a shelf, a bulletin board, in a garage. It was everywhere once I started looking. Even in my home... well, mostly in my home, unfortunately.

Find Erin Fitzsimmons here and Chase Jarvis here.

This program covers the theory and shooting side of HDR, and the next episode will focus on the software side - combining and post processing bracketed series and HDR-images. Before the next time you might want to get a hold of an HDR-program. Martin will mention Photomatix and Picturenaut, but there are many other programs out there, which can do the job. More on that next time.

  2. Setting up the camera
  3. First shots

On Location gone fishin'

gone_fishin.jpgLiterally... Martin has been out fishing these past few days and must regretfully announce that he has concentrated more on scaly creatures than on Nikonians (with good luck he says). Because of this the podcast On Location is cancelled this week, but will be back in full force next Monday.

Show Notes: August 20, 2008
Alleys can provide some really nice subjects - long rows of trees on both sides of a road. But this row wasn't quite as long as it should have been and the traffic was terrible, so getting the calm to shoot it wasn't easy.

  4. Weather observations
  5. Shooting the alley
  6. Shooting the bridge
  7. Winding down in the rain

The Nikonians On Location #25 - Black Background

Inspired by some pictures in a magazine Martin takes on creating a dark mood in a small makeshift, tabletop studio using black background paper and a couple of flashes. He shoots dry flowers and leaves and plays with different subjects once the light is set up.

Show Notes: July 07, 2008

Video supplement:
In the slideshow Martin shows examples of the setup he used to get the gloomy, dark, renaissance painting-like mood with a dark background that he aimed for.

The Nikonians On Location #22 - Chaotic Collages

This time Martin is sticking a lot of individual images together to form collages. He covers the way of shooting them and how to create controlled chaos in the result.

Click here to download Nikonians On Location Podcast #22 (NPC-OL-2008-06-16; 21:36; 10.1MB, MP3 format).
Video supplement available here (NPC-OLV-2008-06-16; 6:30; flash format).

Show Notes: June 16, 2008
Inspired by Heather Champ of flickr and David Hockney, a British pop artist, we this time venture into a more arty way of taking and working on pictures. By shooting panoramic-like, but without the meticulous control that's used in normal panoramas, we get a dozen or so images that can be arranged into a chaotic collage.

Video supplement:
This week's slideshow shows a few examples of the finished collages and follows the creation of a couple too.

The Nikonians On Location #14

A walk in a spring forrest with a lot of small flowers, budding trees and great weather - and shooting at lowest possible aperture only.

Click here to download Nikonians On Location Podcast #14 (NPC-OL-2008-04-14; 21.17; 9.75MB, MP3 format).
Video supplement available here (NPC-OLV-2008-04-14; 10:39; flash format).

Show Notes: April 14, 2008
Birds are singing and spring finally seems to be here, and that lured me back into nature shooting spring flowers in the sunny forrest. The drill was to shoot wide open - at lowest aperture only, f2.8 and f1.8 plus a few at f4 (10-20mm Sigma and 70-200 with a 1.7 extender). The music for this episode is a guitar duo, Duo Chambure, with Petite Camusete by Adriano Willaert. Published by Magnatune.

The sound file:
00:10 Intro
01:25 Low aperture
02:40 Controlling aperture
05:02 On hands and knees
08:25 Wild forrest
12:30 Wide angle
15:00 Really low
15:40 70-200 and extender
18:10 Goodbye

Video supplement:
A small commented slideshow with examples from the shallow DOF spring forrest shoot covered in the podcast.
