This made me smile I wish the pressmen had been there

wedding photography more technical approach

As to previous post this is a more technical approach to shooting wedding photographs. So the shots with the bride and the car have a very formal quality. The way a photographer might work if they were doing a photoshoot for Hello or OK magazine, filming a celebrity. Of course the bride and groom are the celebrities of their own wedding. Do they want a large amount of staged shots. One can create a fantasy that is not a true representation of who they are and their personalities. I don't know the philosophy of this particular photographer and I am making no judgements either way about his work. Personally I prefer the photojournalist approach the goal being to tell the story of the day and to capture the spirit of all involved. And I felt the photographers in the previous post were doing just this. Its the telling of the story of the wedding that establishes the exciting and interesting memory of the event.

Very interesting wedding photographers

In many ways what we do with Wedding Photography is very similar. Their ideas re capturing the spirit of the event and how during the proceedings they develop a wonderful rapport with guests. We use character to achieve a similar result.

V&A Chinese New Year

Mel and Tim acting as Digital Paparazzi went to the V&A to see the Beijing Opera Monkey Troupe show. As soon as we arrived there was a dragon to see just outside. We met up with the monkey king troupe who were doing 3 shows. One demonstation in the Raphael room and then in the lecture theatre the full show and also the show of the Face changer. The Face Changer is unique even in China and not suprisingly the audience were mesmerised. The full show was the culmination of the event and were a massive success. Make sure you see this troupe before they return to China.

Digital comic Paparazzi group the Pressmen watch Beijing Opera

Ghaffar brings Beijing Opera to London 2

Ghaffar Pourazar has brought over to the Uk The Beijing Opera Monkey Troupe. Today they did a lecture Demonstration for students at the London Metropolitan University. It was a delight to watch as we could see them without makeup. I think these students were lucky to see this as it demonstrated the uniqueness of this art form. What the students could have learnt was the precise movement of Beijing Opera both internal and external. This comes from years of hard and disciplined training. It is a great shame that so few drama departments know that they are in London so many students will fail to see this wonderful Lecture demonstration and thus will fail to learn some of what is lacking in western physical theatre.
Ghaffar went from the Uk to study in China many years ago and is one of the few westerners to ever learn the Monkey King. Given that he speaks fluent English it will be a shame if not more students get to participate in this energising and exciting workshop.

Ghaffar brings Beijing Opera to UK

The Pressmen as Digital Paparazzi are following the Beijing Opera Monkey Troupe as they do a tour of the UK.

Charly in Covent Garden

Charly has been performing aroung the world and in Covent Garden for many years. Originally he was a Circus performer and that shows in the range and level of his performing skills. His balancing of objects or his handstands are phenomenal. London is lucky to have this level of Street Performer. In fact the Covent Garden performers are a great attraction in London which consistently the authorities fail to recognise. They help bring people to Covent Garden and help make it the attraction that it is.

The hoohaa monologues,"A theatre in Florida had to change the title of a charity production of The Vagina Monologues on its marquee, after a woman complained that it was offensive.The new name? They decided on 'The Hoohaa Monologues'.Then, they had to change it back after the play's producers said that the lack of offense was offensive."
I mean you gotta laugh.
