The OG summer tents are sought after by painters, photographers, tourists, renters, historians, strollers, bikers,  and others. Our tents are unique.   From a photographer’s point of view, we look for new ways of seeing the tents;  we try to be creative with lighting and composition.  It’s not easy to come up with something different, but that is what we require at this Ocean Grove website where photography is used more than words to describe our town.

When I submitted a “plain vanilla” portrait of the tents for the book “New Jersey 24/7” I was surprised that the image was one of the winners, but then I realized that those of us who live here are a bit jaded, like New Yorkers who take the Empire State Building for granted.

But for you OG photographers, Blogfinger will continue looking for fresh ways of seeing our historic and beautiful tents.

While we are on the subject of still photographers working on images of actors and scenes while a film is being shot,  undoubtedly the most famous of that genre was on the set of The Misfits, a 1961 John Huston film starring Clark Gable, Marilyn Monroe, Montgomery Clift, Eli Wallach and Thelma Ritter.  Huston invited members of the famed photo agency “Magnum” to have freedom on the set to shoot the dynamic scenes behind the scenes. They mostly took photographs of the actors in and out of their film roles.

The famous group included Bruce Davidson, Cartier-Bresson, Eve Arnold, Cornell Capa, Robert Penn and Ernst Haas.  So many of their images became famous, and books have been written about that collaborative photographic project.

Here is a link where you can see some of those photos:    Phaidon link The Misfits.  Phaidon published a book called The Misfits.  This link is about when photographer Eve Arnold met Marilyn Monroe.
