5 Top Contemporary Photographers and Their Best Tools

Art is about capturing the world as we see it. For centuries, oil paints were the best tools for fine art and it was the commonly adopted medium for the Old Masters.
Today, while traditional media is just as important to art, new tools like digital cameras are coming to the fore. Photographers are now playing with the past and present in their work with the aid of tools, such as cameras, lenses, lighting, and mirrors.

The Photographer Sarah Bowman

I first approached photography as an outlet to encourage others to recognize and appreciate their own beauty. Years passed, as I became more inspired by ethereal and fantastical concepts, and I became interested in more creative interpretations.

The soft and whimsical poise of a fairy; darkness, dejection, feelings of loss and sorrow; I adore finding the allure anywhere on the spectrum. This passion has developed into a desire to offer a glimpse into the intangible, preternatural domain.

I draw much of my inspiration from folklore, mythology, or strong feelings. On occasion, a distinct face, or person, provokes an idea. Artistic films or video games may also arouse an image. more » “The Photographer Sarah Bowman”

Photographer Lillian Liu

History plays a dynamic part in my work. Whether it’s portraiture styles from centuries past, to stories handed down for generations and generations- I always try to nod towards what has already come to pass.

Although many things I do are not historically accurate by a long mile- I always try to keep the spirit of the idea present. Historically inspired silhouettes, with a modern and personal spin, is what I would call some of the pieces.

I coax poses from someplace intimate and person within the model’s movements, but often encourage them to frame it in a manner that echoes paintings or sculptures.

My subject matter also weaves between royalty, to witches, to blushing maidens…old deities, archaic religion…and unearthly creatures from fairytales. more » “Photographer Lillian Liu”
