中国的黑与白 • China in Black & White

I’ve stumbled upon some inspirational black and white architectural and portrait photos from an eclectic mix of photographers. I have a huge archive of architectural and landscape photos and I’ve decided to re-edit some selected images that were suitable for this series and publish a series of entirely black and white photos about Chinese landscapes and the urban jungle of Shanghai. This series encompasses landscape photography as well as tapping into the world of photo retouching mastery.

我曾经看到一些由多元化摄影师拍摄的令人鼓舞人心的黑白建筑以及人像照片。我存有很多建筑和风景照片,我决定选定一些照片来重新编辑以适合这一黑白系列主题,并发表了一系列关于中国景观和上海都市的黑白照片。该系列包括风光摄影以及照片的后期制作。

初期 • The Early Days

I have taken pictures since 1995 and studied black and white and color photography at the University of Hildesheim when digital cameras were still non existent. Having spent countless hours in the darkroom to develop the negatives, it was a tedious process and inefficient. With the introduction of professional digital cameras, it has revolutionized the photography industry. With the introduction of new technology, it altered the photography landscape drastically.

从1995年起,我就开始拍照,并在德国希尔德斯海姆大学学习黑白和彩色摄影。当时数码相机并不存在,我花了无数个小时在暗房里冲印底片,这是一个效率低下和繁琐的过程。随着专业的数码相机引进,它彻底改变了摄影行业。随着不断引进新技术,彻底改变了摄影的世界。

照片后期制作 • Photo Retouching

Retouching images replaces the process in the darkroom and photo retouching became an essential part of photography. I’ve spent countless hours in retouching my own work so I know every flaw and detail of my work to improve next time. You can compare the film darkroom to the retouching part of today. Photographing is the designing and creation of ideas of the imagery and retouching is the technical part of the process to sculpture the image. It is wise to master both processes in order to achieve perfection.

照片的后期制作取代了在暗室里冲底片的过程,照片后期制作成为摄影一个重要的组成部分。我为了不断的提高与进步,花了很多时间在后期制作上,所以我知道我照片拍摄的每一个缺陷和细节。您可以在电影暗房比较今天的修饰部分。摄影是发挥想象力和创造力的过程,照片后期制作是使照片更有型的技术支持。掌握这两个过程是明智的,以达到完美的效果。

这个系列 • The Series

My black and white series is a mastery of image composition and retouch. At the beginning I’ve always followed certain standards and I thought they were strict rules as to what’s considered as aesthetic. After working on countless assignments I have begun to noticed that there less and less boundaries, I felt almost I’m confident enough to break the rules and started to apply my own rules of aesthetics. I’m not saying I will start shooting images upside down but having worked on so many assignments I want to seek for new creative ways to shoot yet retaining the very basic ideas of the assignment.

我所拍摄的黑白系列是构图和后期制作的运用。在开始的时候,我始终遵循和美学标准一样的严格标准。在很多工作积累后,我开始注意到界限越来越小,我有足够的信心打破规则,使用我自己的美学规则。我不是说我会开始拍摄颠倒的图像,只是在经历那么多的摄影工作后,我想寻求新的创造性的拍摄方式,却依然能保留非常基本的想法。

This series show China in a monotone black and white with extreme contrast. This contrast will highlight the bright areas and dim the dark areas to its extremes to culminate only on very specific areas. There is no specific interpretation behind my images as I’m not an artist, I reserve the interpretation for the viewer and my goal is to express the aesthetic in my own unique way.

该系列展现了中国单调的黑白搭配极端的对比。这种明暗对比使某些特定区域达到极致。我对我的照片没有具体的释意,因为为我不是一个艺术家,我把诠释的机会留给观众,我的目标只是要表达我自己独特的审美方式。

Contrasty images reduces the gray mid-tones making the image more like a silhouette. The darkness of the sky gives the image a surreal and mystic look. It is like sun eclipse during a bright sunny day, in a world of fantasy, turning the day into the night. Blocking the light of the heaven and retain the light on earth. I have the freedom to sculpture the important things in the picture and darken the areas I view as insignificant.

反差图像减少灰色中间色调使图像更像是一个剪影。天空的黑暗使图像充满超现实主义和神秘的气息。在阳光灿烂的日子里,在一个幻想的世界里,把白天变成夜晚。阻挡天空的光芒,留住地表的光线。我有重塑照片重要细节的自由,让它变暗是微不足道的区域。
