Famous Photographer?

  1. For a school assignment, I have to report on a famous photographer, find ten images taken by them, and then replicate one of their images, I've been looking on Google for a while, and I've found some great photographers, but none of them I can recreate. I don't have access to a studio or anywhere that fancy, although there are a few ponds and a field that faces west when the sun sets.
    Would any of you kindly help me find a photographer whose images I could recreate?
    Thank you :D
  2. What a cool assignment! I don't think you have to worry about equipment... you have everything you need to take some great photos. If it was me I would go with Weegee (Arthur Fellig). He was a famous street photographer who had a knack for crime scenes and news photos. You could set up your own "crime scene" outside somewhere, or even just do some regular street photography.

    Have fun with it whatever you decide!
  3. I searched him up on Google, and since they're all in black and white, I technically didn't have to use fake blood in the shot, I would do something similar to that, but I live in the suburbs, and most, if not all, of his pictures are in pretty dense urban areas, I don't have any modes of transportation, so I can't do it for this project, but maybe another time on my own when I get the chance! Thanks Fly :D
  4. How about Ansel Adams, Henri Cartier Blesson or Francis Frith?
