The Art of Photography Show is an established and critical force in the world of contemporary photography. Now in its 8th year, this presentation of world class photography is truly exquisite. The show provides tangible benefits to artists trying to break into the public eye. This well thought out international exhibition provides value to artists at every turn, from first-rate viewing in the judging process to exhibition and publication opportunities, photo industry connections and monetary awards.

Show Highlights:

  • $10,000 in award money will be given to artists in the Art of Photography Show 2012.
  • Over 1,500 people will attend the Opening Reception Gala on Saturday September 29th. Our attendees are a mix of art collectors, high net worth residents, advertising executives, architects & designers, executives of major San Diego corporations and government leaders.
  • A superb 76 page show catalog will be given to everyone at the Opening Reception Gala and is made available for free at each special event during the exhibition.
  • We sell a very large percentage of the work, of which the artists receive most of the revenue.
  • We donate 100% of our portion of the art sales revenue to the San Diego Art Institute.

Our great love of this art form prompts us to ‘pull out all of the stops’ in order to showcase a truly excellent presentation of photography, to provide substantial benefits to the exhibiting artists, and to elevate and promote this art form.

When it comes to getting accurate colors, nothing is better than nailing your white balance settings right on the head. If the white balance is even slightly off,it can produce a highly noticeable bluish or reddish tinge. Sometimes the tinge is desirable. It can enhance the appeal of clouds or night time photography. But if you’re going for accuracy, you’ll want the perfect white balance settings for the situation you’re shooting in. Pay attention because l’m about to show you how to strike the right balance (literally speaking) by using your camera’s manual white balance settings.

Megapixel junkies can find their next fix in Hasselblad’s latest medium-format creation, the H4D-200MS. The camera boasts an amazing 200-Mpixel resolution, and was announced at Photokina last year. To put that in perspective, most professional DSLRS hover in the 20-Mpixel range. Hasselblad’s newest camera is about 10 times greater than that.

 

Medium-format, for those who don’t know, refers to a format of film photography larger than the standard 24mm by 36mm, known as 35mm, but smaller than the 4- by 5-inch format, known as large format. Digitally, the sensor is larger than a 35mm sensor; it could have dimensions of 33.1 by 44.2mm.

Hasselblad dominates the medium-format category, and it has been a popular option for decades since World War II. There are several models currently available in the H4D line: 31, 40, 50, 60, and now the 200. The H4D-200MS, specifically, comes as the third entry in a small line of multishot(MS) cameras: H3DII-39MS and H4D-50.
