Kahn & Selesnick

Last week I went to this year’s SPE (Society of Photographic Education) National Conference in Baltimore as a student volunteer. The conference is about collaborative exchange, and I really enjoy the ending lecture by Nicholas Kahn and Richard Selesnick.

Together they create panorama projects including diverse sources like nature, architecture, literature, history, and even outer space. Go to their website to see their fabulous photos. http://www.kahnselesnick.com/

Each of their panorama photographs is created by combing a lot of photos shot at the same scene. When they show their panorama photos on the screen from left to right,  I felt like each of their panoramas is like a short movie. It is magic.

Photography is always related to other forms of art. To shoot a photo, you do not just record the scene, but also create a scene. Teamwork is a must if you want to create scenes for your photographs. Collaborative photo projects are amazing because the shooting experience with other co-workers will be a good memory for you. Go get your photo projects ideas and find your partners!
