Chan Kwok Hung - Vivid

Sun Nov 4, 2012, 3:23 AM
As you know, I normally don't do (features) Journals.
The exception goes to those photographers that had some historical importance in the photography World, those that influence (d) me, those that I believe can move others like they moved me, humanitarian photographers, and that normally live in the "shadow" of the same old Features and references.

And that is why today I bring you Chan Kwok Hung.
He is is a Hong Kong based, self taught travel photographer. He acquired his first DSLR camera in 2006. With artistic vision and passion he has embarked on his extensive journeys to less developed countries such as Myanmar, Nepal, Eygpt, Cambodia and connected with exotic and indigenous cultures to ignite his enthusiasm for photography.
He proves that proper editing (this is the XXI Century) result in powerful images.
Aspires to use his lens to reveal people's profound humanity, such as smiles, laughter and tears.
I think he can, and you?



















Note: I know, this pixels are too vivid, so here's some black & white art, while you drink your coffee:  forums.charnwoodarts.com/files…
Have a great day. :camera:

I'm not fond of this photographer... I've seen some of his galleries on his site and I must say a lot of shots look so fake or heavily edited, it takes off all the naturalness and simpleness of good photography... given that every picture is a honest representation of reality. And I have a few doubts.

Me too.
But the editing is right there, in the limit.

In the limit... look at "fight to live" and tell me if you honestly think that's a real image, and not manipulated in any way... c'mon! And that's just one of the many I've seen... in the picture with the two kids, you can see a bright sky filled with stars, there's no way you can do that with a normal exposure. I don't like people who play tricks to fool others...

The second one is clearly manipulated, just try bright screen.

So my question is, why featuring him? :)

Well, you had journals with all kind of shots. Now you have one with XXI Century traces: photo@. The importance is seeing the differences... and the things in common.

Sure, but still I wouldn't feature someone like this seeing what he does, may give the wrong message to beginner photographers...
You know I like your journals, I just don't agree with this one :)
