THE HATED ONES: RUNNING WITH THE HUNTED BY RYAN FU

There is always been two sides to every story but usually when it comes to Hollywood, the media only shows one side of the story. The Hated Ones by new writer, Ryan Fu, shows the other side of the Hollywood scene. The entertainment industry is worth billions of dollars, which people want protect their valuable image but they can’t control the public, who want to know what they are doing in their daily lives. In comes the wolves of Hollywood, the paparazzi, who are willing to do anything to get that coveted shot that might be worth thousands of dollars. The Hated Ones is a collection of stories and poems from celebrity photojournalist, Ryan Fu, who was been in the industry for the last ten years. It’s a brand new perspective from the other side of the lens showing a different light to the entertainment industry. The story follows Ryan from his rough upbringing in the streets of Los Angeles to his time in the military fighting terrorists, then finally hitting the streets of Hollywood hunting world famous celebrities.

A wise person once said the purpose of life is to experience everything to in order to gain knowledge because knowledge is power.

So buy that ticket, shut up, and enjoy the ride!

The Onion Model of a Layered Image by Mataro Photographs (BLW Contributor)

LayeringOnionModel

Onions make me cry, that is why they are inspiring. While preparing for breakfast, the thought of a scene crossed my mind and I felt it needs to be drawn, before the scent slips out of my mind.
“Layering” by convention is an image with a dominant foreground and informational background. That definition alone is somewhat confusing to most of us. This Onion Model, lets us peel what is inside of a layered image, what is inside of it, how it could be made and how it is seen.

_MG_3070
The secret to a more consumable onion of layers is the core. It must have a SUBJECT MATTER, the very essence of your shot. It should describe in one single sentence what you had just taken and made. If you cannot do it in a single comprehensive sentence, then your onion is stale. People may and will not digest what you are trying to cook. You might get fried by critics who are always in a perfect shooting condition.

_MG_2543
A layered image, which has complexes and geometries is somewhat confusing and may pronounce unwanted elements. It should have a POINT-of- ENTRY , a primary subject that would introduce the viewer to the idea of the image. I should be concise, bright and clear. Spicy and immediately stings.

Artsy Fartsy – Banksy does Gaza (The Power of Art)

gazaaa

Banksy revealed the locations of the pieces in Gaza in Palestine. Inspired by a sculpture of Niobe, a Greek mythological figure, the first piece is entitled “Bomb Damage” and obviously with Banksy, the placement is just on point. Niobe’s children were killed out of spite and then in her mourning she turned into a stone that was constantly weeping.

Two quotes were enclosed with the images of the new stenciled pieces:

Gaza is often described as ‘the world’s largest open air prison’ because no-one is allowed to enter or leave. But that seems a bit unfair to prisons – they don’t have their electricity and drinking water cut off randomly almost everyday.  – Banksy

A local man came up and said ‘Please – what does this mean?’ I explained I wanted to highlight the destruction in Gaza by posting photos on my website – but on the internet people only look at pictures of kittens. — Banksy
