This is an example of the right moment for catching the monk when he tried to avoid from all the tourist. I was invited by the monk to stay with them and learn how they live.

Tomorrow is the Jewish New Year. It is a common custom in most of the religious that New Year is good date for new start. So for me Greatphotoshop is this new beginning! In the last year I was busy developing this site from scratch. The last two-month were hectic due to several pre-launch that didn’t succeed. Today I have decided that no matter what is working or not I’m launching it for the New Year and let it be new start and god one for all. Where it all begun?

My name is Haim Srur and I’m like many of you a photographer. Not a professional one, but still a serious one. Like all of those addicted to photography with all this heavy body and lenses, that read all the photo blogs, joined photography workshops, and, (hopefully) get improved from day to day.

AS many of you, I spend my time in a lots of photography sites. This site is aimed for all the photography community: The hobbyists, the professional the industry leaders, and the art buyers. The platform enables every one to find anything that he/she wants instead of wondering around and spend time in several sites. This site includes all.

Photography in Holly places challenge the photographer in many ways. Although for documentary photographers is very exciting to photograph in such events, still need a good preparation in order to achieve goo results.

The light

Usually most of the holly places are dark places with low light or combination of candles low light with some top windows lights. Top windows light is usually also an photography opportunity. Like in the following Image that was capture in middle of day but in order to cool it I changed the WB, which I will be elaborate in another post.

In cases of low light you trade with the wider aperture in your lens and hence, depth of field.

Israel is an heaven for us the photographers. After every assignment in israel I find my self asking – How, in such a small area, there are so many ceremonies from all types? from all the religious? from different cultures?

Israel is the center for the major religious and major sub stream of these religious. So, for example, in Israel there are more than 3 new years holidays and shooting opportunity accordingly. Every holiday has its own customs, rituals, marches, food types, colors and more.

 Photographing ceremony is like any assignment, photojournalist or wedding photography. ceremony photography comprise several opportunities or others will call it several chapters. As a photographer that plan the shooting you have to learn these chapters.

Alongside the variety of religious, there are subgroups and traditional movement and lots of beliefs and mites. It has been developed along the years around holy places, holy people’ graves, historical monument etc.

The main 3 part of ceremony or rituals are: preparation, climax and anticlimax . When you plan your shooting you have to decide what is the story you want to tell. It will impact where you will position yourself. It will impact the color or hue will you choose to use, Monochromatic or colorful? Emotions – which one will you focus on? ecstatic or meditating?

you are probably asking how this done exactly?

It was publishes first at Nine Volt Photo, and probably this is why their website was collapsed. They calim that they  found a page at retail powerhouse B&H Photo.

b2ap3_thumbnail_nine-volt-Canon-3D-BH-Photo-greatphotoshop.jpg

They share with us the above page, that list with specifications including a 46.1-megapixel CMOS image sensor, dual Digic 5+ processors, a 3.2-inch LCD, and dual CompactFlash memory-card slots. All but the first of those specs are already on the current top-end EOS-1D X. So is it only about the megapixel? and, that the people at Canon were paniced by the Nikon D800?

What a camera!?  - Canon fans be ready - but this it real?
