2016 DPReview Readers’ Best Shots: People

The old man and the sea. Old and hard working, most elderly still need to work to make a living. You can look into his eyes and read his story.

Picking your favorite image is never an easy task. Nevertheless, our readers were up to the challenge when we asked them to submit their best shots of 2016. We received a huge number of submissions, and it was no small job picking favorites. We didn’t need the reminder, but it underscored just how talented our readership is. Photos were divided into three categories and we settled on a small selection to feature in each.

For this category, ‘people,’ we looked for photos that tell a story about the human side of this world we inhabit. There were many beautiful and compelling images submitted – be sure to check out all of the submissions here and here.

A huge thanks to everyone that participated and gave us a chance to see your work!

Here is a candid portrait shot I took in May 2016 during the Lag BaOmer celebration in the Mile-End neighborhood of Montreal, where there is a quite large Hasidic Jewish community. The contrast between the lighting of some faces (provided by the bonfire in the middle of the street) and the darkness of others reminds me of the clair-obscur/Chiaroscuro style of some dutch painters like Rembrandt. What do you think?

'Camera Master' Gian Luigi Carminati has been repairing cameras for almost 60 years

by on Dec.30, 2016, under Reviews


A new short video introduces Gian Luigi Carminati, a 76-year-old technician from Milan, Italy, who has been repairing analog cameras for nearly 60 years. While the documentary is only a touch over two minutes long, it introduces viewers to Carminati’s analog camera collection and his thoughts on photography.

Carminati, who considers himself a technician rather than a photographer, dabbles in photography himself, describing a particular fondness for old cameras and black-and-white images. The technician has been able to continue running his repair business despite the rise of digital cameras, stating in the video,’When the digital came, it felt like my job was over.’ The documentary was directed by David Drills.
