Participants in the meeting will receive practical advice from Dmitry’s personal experience.
«To get a good photo, you need a confluence of many circumstances, to which the photographer should be prepared and set up to react to them,» says Dmitry Pitenin. I may write my thoughts on this topic in a separate article, I will now give advice on the behavior when shooting - be attentive to detail, do not fuss, and do everything thoughtfully and without unnecessary delay, «the photographer says.
Dmitry Pitenin is a landscape photographer, a member of the Union of Photo Artists of Russia, a finalist and a participant of all-Russian and international competitions and exhibitions, such as «National Geographic. Wild Nature of Russia «,» Golden Turtle «,» Amazing Planet «, one of the organizers of the photo project» The Soul of Russia «. His inspiration derives from the states of nature: «in the gusts of the wind, salty spray, rustling of leaves and scattered light,» in any places with minimal human intervention. In the cities it is inspired by the atmosphere of antiquity, the rough masonry of walls and log cabins, the thin points of spiers of Gothic cathedrals and the lace of stone.
The meeting with Dmitry Pitenin is held within the framework of a series of creative meetings with members of the Russian Photo Club. Meetings, lectures, practical classes will take place in the Gallery of Classical Photography every weekend. The dates and times of the events can be found on the website www.classicgallery.ru in the section «Events».
Photographs were studied independently. Books, tests, mistakes, analysis, imitation and repetition. Constant search for «his». I did not have a childhood with Smena, as well as long hours in the bathroom with a red lantern and a smell of reagents. There was some kind of film soap box for pictures in the family album. And that’s all.
The world began to slowly turn over after buying a digital camera. I always did not like to do anything thoughtlessly, became interested in, delve into. And he was drawn. At first, absolutely any genres were interested, I wanted to try everything, because there are so many interesting things in the world of photography. Gradually, I found «my own»: the inner strings vibrate with a gentle and «murashkovy» timbre when shooting nature.
In other genres, I’m an outsider: I love to watch, but I do not want to take pictures. Nevertheless, sometimes I take pictures of the city landscape, trying to find places without noticeable influence of time - wires, cars, advertising. I love landscape abstractions.
If they ask me what my pictures are about, I will answer: «About beauty in the ordinary. About how often in the bustle and «foam days» we do not notice much and do not attach importance. On the fragility and majesty of nature. « I try to convey simple sensations - the roughness of the stones, the sun’s heat and the freshness of the wind. Simple joys.
