T

he word photography comes from the Greek words for light (φωτός) and drawing (γραφή). In its essence, photography is nothing more than painting with light. Indeed, it is light that determines what comes out of the shot – would it be dramatic and harsh or warm and soft. Bad lighting has destroyed more shots than all other photographic problems combined. Light is, originally, what all photographers have strived to capture since the dawn of time. All authors published in the current issue of Capture Mania are well-versed in not only light and light painting but also composition and posing. It’s evident from their portfolios that they know the golden rules of photography – when to wait for the right moment and when to challenge your own instincts to be able to capture it; how to establish an intimate relationship with your subject or to create a new world; to see beyond the mundane and past the ordinary.

Photographers have many names – storytellers, artists, craftsmen, snappers. These words alone fail to define what photography is – a combination of skills, talent, great light, amazing subject and ideas. Each time you press the shutter button you start writing a new page in the vast book of photography. It is constantly being rewritten by photographers – newbies, enthusiasts and professionals - all over the world. Each view is unique and no two shots are alike, even those taken at the same place by one and the same person. Photography is painting with light and showing YOUR light to the world. Take a look at the work of the amazing artists published in the current issue and get inspired. The world out there awaits to be captured - you just need to pick up the camera.

ALI JAVED Location: Lahore Punjab, Pakistan. y natural interest in wildlife and birds started since my childhood. When I was a child I used to go into the fields with my Uncle. They lived in a farm and the men were often doing their work in farming. A lot of insects used to come to the crops and I would observe the Egrets while they came and ate the insects. I started taking such an interest in them that I would specially go out to watch them and then later on I would ask their local names. Even when I was watching the television, whenever I saw some beautiful birds on National Geographic, I would ask my father whether such birds were also found in Pakistan. My passion for photography started when I got admission in Punjab University and got my very first DSLR camera. I started doing minor work like wedding shoots, Commercial and fashion photography but I was not satisfied

Capture Mania Photography Magazine © capturemania.com

A World of Silence orn in Burgundy, France, in 1973, I started to take pictures at the age of 40, learning by myself. I like minimalism and Japanese poetry, Jazz records and old African statuettes, I travel a lot - and I guess that’s all about it. In my work, I try to filter the silence from the noise and extract stillness from motion, building a mental space beyond physical geography and out of time. The following pictures were taken in various places during the last two years : Brittany, France, Madeira Island, Scotland. They are part of a project untitled “A world of Silence” which will be the object of a solo exhibition in a Paris gallery in 2017.

BISTRA STOIMENOVA Location: Sofia, Bulgaria t all started in 2009 when I got my first digital camera as a present. From that moment on I started seeing the world through the lens (mostly). It took years to self-teach myself (because it took time for me to realize that photography was not just a hobby, but a way of life) with books and a lot of crap pictures. I’ve heard most of the insulting comments people can come up with during these years - from being a stupid wench/bimbo who’d better keep of the camera equipment to being unoriginal and so on and so forth. That motivated me to prove all those people wrong. Come to think of it, if they hadn’t been that harsh at the beginning, I wouldn’t be a photographer at all right now. If you didn’t give up in the beginning - you probably wonder ‘Who are you?’ OK, I am a

female born in 1992 native to and living in Bulgaria. Apart from being a photographer, I have a degree in English Philology (that means - English and American studies or in plain language - English and American language culture and a hell a lot more of things you don’t care about) and I’m currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Translation AND another Bachelor’s degree in Cultural Studies. My main areas of photographic interest are – travel, landscape, nature, macro and food photography but that doesn’t end the list. I can shoot anything – if given the opportunity. Photography has been a passion for me for the past 7 years and the more I shoot, the more I want to keep on doing it. I just love showing the world as I see it through the lens to others. That is my way of creating something, well, sort of.

In the short four years I’ve been engaged in photography I’ve delved into several disciplines, such as landscape, portrait sessions and some architecture, although in my last phase I’ve been devoted mainly to night photography and light painting in landscapes and scenes: finding tranquility in the special and capricious colors of the night skies, the glowing of stars and the grandeur of watching and photographing the Milky Way amidst the darkest of nights. I usually set my scenes in old houses, abandoned stations, vehicles and all kinds of neglect. In these places, night photography achieves to take us to some other time, bringing those

HANS-PETER DEUTSCH Location: Wiesbaden, Germany or more than 30 years (with long stretched interruptions) I am trying to MAKE images, as opposed to just ‘taking shots’. Ansel Adams spoke straight from my heart when he said exactly that in his famous quote. Things have evolved quite substantially since then. What we could do in the darkroom those days seems like very limited fumbling in the dark (quite literally!) compared to what is now possible in scope as well as in precision. So here is how I think of MAKING pictures: When I go out with my camera I am not making pictures, I am only collecting data. That is just the first (and shortest) step of a long process(ing) involving advanced information technology to finally arrive at something you might call an image. Going along these lines I have arrived at some images which I found worthy to show here. All images here are landscapes, all from the cold arctics which is my favorite area for photogra-

phy. But I do have another photographic passion which is Urbex. Urbex is short for Urban Exploration. It is the act of going to and exploring lost and forgotten places that are not visited and often even inaccessible to the general public. Such places might include abandoned factories, hospitals, schools, offices and other derelict buildings, unused nuclear bunkers, old military buildings, disused rail yards etc. While my landscapes show how it might have looked BEFORE we humans came, my Urbex images show places AFTER we have left again. Look at them on my website www.hpd-fotografy. com and by a simple before-after comparison you can judge for yourself how good the human species is for our planet.

Passionate about landscape photography in general, from my earliest years, and especially of all kinds of photography that allows you to visualize and introduce dynamic and static elements in a single photograph, giving it a special character and strength. Over the years what happened as a mere hobby of adolescence has become a true way of seeing the world and trying to understand it, despite how difficult it is. Photography is today the best tool I have to share with you how I interpret what I see, how I feel and sometimes how I suffer. I am satisfied with my work, thanks to him, I have gradually been able to progress and fulfill goals that I could not imagine, such as publications in several well-known magazines such as “Conde Nast Traveler”, as well as being able to have my own Web and make express trips. For this new beginning year I have several projects

JAVIER DEL CERRO Location: Toledo (Spain). My name is Javier del Cerro, a 21 years old landscape photographer. I am from Toledo (Spain), a little imperial city that inspired me some months ago to start photographing. I am studying architecture in Madrid, but when I have free time I leave home trying to find new places, sunsets and sunrises. I’ve spent many hours in those months reading, watching and analyzing pictures of great photographers like Ted Gore, Marc Adamus, Javier de la Torre and Jesús M. García. In my pictures I want to reflect what I feel at the moment when I click the shutter: lights, shadows, colors, atmosphere… Magic moments that transport you to the heaven. Too many times there are no words to explain a moment, that’s why photography exists.

Thanks to light painting I take advantage of my creativity and I’m able to show my vision of different things in a very unusual way. People usually ask me if I use photoshop in my images because of the controlled movement of lights where I literally paint the scene. The answer is always the same, no, I don’t because everything you see is created in real time in one long exposure. www.le2.es Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/le2photo 500px: https://500px.com/le2_photo Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/mario_lechuga_aka_marlez Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/lechumario

Q1: How did you get into photography? When I left the military I decided to follow my love for photography, that I had put on ice since leaving high school back in 1992. I purchased an Canon Rebel XTi and really got back into the love of capturing moments. This was way before Instagram or Snapseed, so it wasn’t long before I was curious about how the magazines created those beautiful images. Understanding Photoshop and lighting were objectives that were quick to follow. Q2: What attracts you to travel and adventure?

SIBERIA FLYING © Michael Kay capture mania.com

Throughout my military career I travelled, not to holiday destinations, but places where you saw people and locations at their most desperate. The looks in young children’s eyes, the ruins of villages and towns obliterated by conflict or natural disaster. Sadly I didn’t have a camera with me for many of my travels. An iPhone or GoPro to capture the intense and unforgettable moments I experienced would have been quite something. Now, I am lucky to be paid to travel to incredible locations for work, whether it be as a Foreign Correspondent, or hosting shows. My passion is to tell stories from all around the globe, about the wonderful and resilient people we have inhabiting it.

ble moments I experienced Q3: Give us some insight into your world as an adventure photographer?

I feel like there is a renaissance occurring in a good image. With the advent of video and the myriad of platforms such as Instagram where you apply a filter, the market has become saturated. But occasionally you come across an inspirational image - that cannot be created by a filter or a platform, but through the eyes and creative genius the person that took it. Q4: How did you turn this passion into a career?

A WINDOW INTO SIBERIA © Michael Kay capture mania.com

I quickly outgrew my Rebel XTi and decided to spend much of my retirement money on an EOS 1DMk4 along with a 50MM 1.2 Prime Lens. I would then hang outside fashion shows during New York Fashion week with the gang of street-style photographers. I’m six foot five inches tall so I could get a shot that other couldn’t - I was also British, so a lot of the big Fashion Editors looked at me when I called their name. I snapped a shot of the Fashion Director for Vogue Mexico and tweeted it at her. Sarah replied and said ‘I wish this guy follow me around all fashion week’. So I replied: ‘be careful what you wish for’. Sarah invited for coffee and the next week I was on a Vogue set filming and taking photos behind the scenes.

The Middle East and Africa - stories about the plight, resilience and resourcefulness of people. Although I did meet a hermit in Nicaragua (see photo) who had decided to give up everything and lived in the mountains dedicating his life to sculpting the side of a rock face. I ended up giving him my boots.

Q7: What are your biggest challenges? Most of the time it is access and threat. Q8: What’s your biggest reward? My biggest reward is always a smile. Q9: How do you choose what’s next? The stories are usually selected by the editor with creative inputs and pitches from myself. Q10: Few words about capture mani magazine?

S

oumyendra Saha is a freelance photographer from Kolkata and an erstwhile software engineer. After an erratic 12-year career crunching C code for companies making network equipment,he was toying with the idea of quitting and finally left his job in early 2014. Following that move,and with lots of time to spare, he decided to roam the streets to discover the city instead of the mountains,an alternative he tried on a couple of occassions before as far as photography is concerned,and started taking photos, again.

CAPTURE MANIA PHOTOGRAPHY MAGAZINE | January / February 2017

This is a collection of street photographs from Kolkata over a periodof one year taken by Soumyendra Saha. Initially he started a project one year back to shoot in the streets of Kolkata to discover what makes his city click and his environment, to discover why he was there at all and to make sense of it all in his newly adopted city. He moved to Kolkata from the suburbs about 2 years before the project. Soumyendra wanted to practice contemporary street photography,at the same timestaying true to the classic decisive moment of Henri Cartier-Bresson. While consciously steering clear of the somewhat cliched documentary-cum-travel street photography,that many call Indian Street Photography he wanted to infuse some humor/intrigue/suspense and portray an otherise ,generally-accepted, “dying” cityin a different light. This had a double purpose - one ,to show that there were moments everywhere laden with life and potential in a city that wasn’t really dying, and the other was to get better in the art of taking photos itself. He enrolled in a couple of Street Photography courses and started going out daily on the streets, almost.This is the result of that work, post which, he says, his discovery of Kolkata and putting the city in perspective is complete.
