Olivier's CV

My way of teaching depends on your level.
In general, I prefer avoiding too much theory, and rather show you once, and make you work on it on a second computer at the same time.

Interview with Olivier

QUESTION 01 | 04
Quel est ton parcours et d'oĂč te vient la passion de la photo ?
Olivier — Question photographie, je suis completement autodidacte.

La passion est nĂ©e en prenant un mois par an chaque annĂ©e pour aller Ă  l’autre bout du monde en routard.

Trouvant dommage de ne pas avoir de souvenir aprĂšs un deuxiĂšme mois passĂ© Ă  explorer la Chine, il y a bientĂŽt 10 ans, j’ai dĂ©cidĂ© de me mettre Ă  la photo.

J’ai commencĂ© avec un Reflex bas de gamme puis ai Ă©voluĂ© en fonction de mes voyages ainsi que de la demande client.

AprĂšs m’ĂȘtre ennuyĂ© en Ă©cole d’ingĂ©nieur, j’ai fais une Ă©cole d’art sur Paris, puis j’ai continuer mon parcours au Canada.

Je suis dĂ©sormais basĂ© Ă  Paris, mĂȘme si mon travail me fait parfois voyager.
QUESTION 02 | 04
Quels cours donnes-tu pour les professionnels de la photographie ?
Olivier — CotĂ© professionnel, je travaille principalement dans le milieu de la 3D.

CotĂ© photographie, il faut savoir s’adapter Ă  son temps. Le client se fiche de la maniĂšre dont l’image est faite, seul compte le rĂ©sultat !

Bien Ă©videmment si vous voulez ĂȘtre rentable, fini l’argentique, trop chronophage.

Questions format d’image, au moment du photoshoot, fini le .JPEG, il faut savoir travailler en *.RAW.

Cela permet notamment une bien meilleure maĂźtrise du processus de retouche et un gain de temps Ă©norme.
QUESTION 03 | 04
Et pour les apprentis, que proposes-tu ?
Olivier — A chaque sujet ses problĂ©matiques. Avec chaque image viennent des retouches diffĂ©rentes.

Le cotĂ© technique s’apprend en comprenant ce que l’on fait mais aussi et surtout en pratiquant.

Il n’y a pas de rĂ©glage magique, ni dans la photo, ni au niveau des retouches. Tout dĂ©pend toujours du contexte.

PlutĂŽt que de noyer quelqu’un sous des heures de thĂ©orie, je prĂ©fĂ©re faire pratiquer l’élĂšve, de maniĂšre Ă  ĂȘtre sĂ»r qu’une fois chez lui, il puisse sans difficultĂ©s appliquer l’exercice en l’adaptant Ă  ses propres envies.

AprÚs un cours de photo, je peux partir arpenter les rues parisiennes afin de réaliser de la pratique avec mes élÚves.

Le recul, le regard et l’expĂ©rience quant Ă  la gestion de projet viendra avec les annĂ©es.

Ayant chez moi le matĂ©riel de lumiĂšre ainsi qu’un trĂ©pied professionnel, il m’est facile de donner un cours sur les problĂšmatiques pouvant ĂȘtre rencontrĂ©es lors de diffĂ©rents contextes: objets, nourriture, fluides, fumĂ©es, etc.

Gardez Ă  l’esprit qu’au delĂ  des rĂ©glages de l’appareil, la lumiĂšre joue un rĂŽle essentiel!

Qui plus est, avec un solide backgroud dans la retouche, je peux donc anticiper les problĂšmes en amont avec l’élĂšve. Ce n’en sera que plus simple et plus rapide par la suite au niveau du cours et des retouches.

Les cours s’adressent aussi bien aux dĂ©butants qu’aux professionnels.

Aussi bien en amont qu’en aval, à savoir la partie photographie mais aussi la retouche d’image.

Il est vivement recommandĂ© pour ceux qui veulent apprendre la retouche d’avoir une tablette graphique.
QUESTION 04 | 04
Quelles sont les erreurs les plus courantes des débutants en photographie ?
Olivier — Acheter un appareil de type Reflex n’a aucun interĂȘt si vous n’utilisez pas uniquement le mode manuel.

Au niveau des rĂ©glages de l’appareil, il faut alors savoir jongler entre trois rĂ©glages clĂ©s:

- la sensibilité ISO,
- l’ouverture de votre appareil
- et la profondeur de champ.

Concernant l’ISO: moins votre sujet est exposĂ© Ă  la lumiĂšre, plus il vous faudra compenser avec, mais plus vous compensez avec, et plus il y a de « bruit » sur l’image et plus celle-ci est dĂ©gradĂ©e.

L’ouverture est le temps qu’a le capteur d’un boitier pour absorber la lumiùre.
Plus l’ouverture est grande, plus l’image obtenue sera lumineuse mais plus le risque de flou augmente, nottament sans trĂ©pied.

MĂȘme principe concernant votre sujet: plus celui-ci bouge, plus il sera flou (si l’ouverture est trop longue).

La profondeur de champ, dont le réglage ne se fait pas seulement en fonction de votre sujet mais aussi de la focale* utilisée, permet de gérer les éléments entourant votre sujet.

Plus la profondeur de champ est courte, plus les éléments éloignés du sujet seront flous, et vice versa.

A noter qu’une faible profondeur sera beaucoup plus sensible Ă  la lumiĂšre qu’une forte. Plus votre focale est Ă©levĂ©e, plus vous serez contraint d’augmenter l’ouverture et donc de vous servir d’un trĂ©pied.

Vis Ă  vis des objectifs, vous en avez deux types: zooms et focales fixes.
Le zoom permet – comme son nom l’indique – de pouvoir vous adapter plus facilement Ă  votre sujet, par rapport Ă  la distance qui vous sĂ©pare mais sont souvent de moindre qualitĂ©, car ayant davantage d’aberrations chromatiques, de distorsions et de vignettage.

Si vous ĂȘtes dĂ©butant, ne foncez pas sur du haut de gamme grand public, dont le coĂ»t est important. La qualitĂ© du rĂ©sultat dĂ©pend principalement du photographe, non du boĂźtier.

En revanche n’économisez pas sur le trĂ©pied, le bas de gamme grand public (<100e) cassera au bout de 10 utilisations – et non, je n’extrapole pas.

PrivilĂ©giez les marques donc chacune des piĂšces peuvent ĂȘtre commandĂ©es individuellement.

*ExprimĂ©e en millimĂštres, la longueur focale est la distance entre le capteur du boitier et l’optique de l’objectif, influent sur le grossissement d’un sujet.
