In its beginnings, photography closely resembled other types of fine art. It required a process that was recognized as difficult by anyone who tried it and many photographers found it to be unpredictable. It wasn’t until the photo was taken and the film developed that the person knew what the result would be. Having gained acceptance as a genuine art form, art photography is displayed in galleries with a dedicated following of art photography enthusiasts around the world. Many conventional galleries are acknowledging the popularity of photography by including it in their exhibits of traditional art to give people more of what they are interested in.
The art gallery exhibits photographs deemed to be the best pieces of work during a fairly short, or long time span. As with any traditional art gallery, one that showcases photography will often have exhibits that are based on a specific theme. This could include various subjects such as landscapes, cityscapes, or people, or types of photography such as vintage.
One of the reasons that many people feel that art photography has grown so popular is because of the realistic subjects that it portrays. Unlike the abstracts that are such
What a surprise! The photography possible with this machine is far better than any camera owned previously. It takes shot after shot of incredible photos whose detail can be enlarged and studied. Like the camera before it of course it takes videos as well.
This is a far cry from the first camera that my brother gave me when I was around 8 years of age. It was quite small but the photos I took have survived and are a record of the family history from those early years. Film had to be inserted and then the photos developed through the local chemist. It meant saving my pocket-money to redeem them.
From that time to this photography has been one of my hobbies and the quantity of shots from just about everywhere travelled or experiences enjoyed are filling albums and taking up storage space around the home. That is unnecessary with the new technology. The computer stores anything needing to be kept while some photos are printed immediately either through my printer or the local shop.
The difference in convenience and cost is astronomical and the pleasure of taking photos has increased enormously thanks to
We must always start from the origin of what you want to understand and then try to necessarily start from the archetypes of all things. What is an archetype? Basically, it’s the idea of something. It still has a meaning, not yet, but it has the idea of how to that particular thing. All we know of this universe we live in is recorded in our mind in the form of an idea how to be everything and these primordial ideas we have just called archetypes (a definition that is found abundantly on the Internet and on any dictionary). To explain their meaning and to understand why is there all this talk with photography I can give an example. We can use the food. What are the ideas of edible food, qualitatively good and palatable? To put it directly, we see what are the archetypes regarding food photography.
Well, first of all, I must be very saturated. Any other non-vivid colour would correspond to the exact opposite of what constitutes an idea of palatable food. Then it must have a lot of glitter on the surface, because this means that the food was freshly cooked and then,
Well for one thing – you’ll be able to add three little letters after your name… Stephanie Gagnon, CPP – has a nice ring to it doesn’t it? With the growing number of photographers all over the country it can help to set you apart. Only about 3% of photographers in the USA are certified – that’s a very small number! And that’s not because the test is impossible to pass – it’s because there are so many new photographers with little to no education in the field. To be able to increase that percentage and be one of those who can say that they understand photography and passed their CPP examination and print submission would be a great achievement! It also shows other photographers (especially those who’ve been in the industry for a long while) that you value this craft and that you are committed to growing and improving.
What does it mean for your clients? Well let’s be honest. Not many of your clients are going to know what CPP means. And because they don’t know what it means – the might not know why to value that. But you can share that you’re certified
Tips for Taking Baby Pictures
First, let’s talk about several ways in which you can take better photos of your baby.
By placing the baby in a cute or interesting pose, you can take a much better shot. Try to capture the baby in a natural and comfortable pose, such has when she’s sleeping or laughing. Also, always make the baby’s face the main point of interest of your composition. The face holds all her character and emotions so it makes your picture much more powerful.
Props are an exciting and creative way to take innovative and unique pictures. By placing the baby in a basket or by dressing it up in a fun costume, you can add freshness and interest to a picture. When it comes to props, you can try to think outside the box and come up with something that is both suitable for the situation and never seen before.
Lighting is everything in photography. The word “photography” itself means “writing with light”. When taking baby pictures, soft light is very pleasing to the eye and
With new technologically advanced cameras making rounds in the market, photography has become as easy as a click of the shutter. However, photographers who are passionate and take this art form seriously need to know the magic of light and shadow. Because, cameras work in the light, it’s always been a challenge to take good photos during the night-time.
Night time offers brilliant photographic moments. The sky, the stars, planets and the nature come together as a delightful photographic moment. However, the poor light conditions make the photographs look grainy and odd colored. With advanced hardware for cameras, it has become quite easy for the photographers to click quality photos even in the dark!
Here are some photography tips to help you shoot in the dark.
- ISO: When shooting in low light or dark conditions, using a higher ISO somewhere around 800 to 6400 is a good idea.
- Use larger lenses: Large aperture lenses work quite well in dark conditions. Large lenses with 35mm f/1.8 or 50mm f/1.8 features can be very effective in low light conditions. However, one has to remember, while using these lenses the ISO level needs to be low. Somewhere
To begin with, the simplest manipulation technique that one could use is shadow making. Shadow making is simply adding or removing a shadow from an object. Although at a glance this may seem an easy task, just adding a shadow to the object in front of you. Don’t be fooled, there is actually a science behind adding and removing shadows and the effect that is created. Without a shadow, there is no visual clue as to the scale and position of the object. The shadow also serves to anchor the object to its surface. Thus creating an impact on how we perceive the image.
By changing the length, direction and depth of the image, we can control how the brain interprets the image. For example adding a short narrow shadow would suggest that is midday, or leaving a space between the object and the shadow to create a levitating effect. Shadows also dictate the lighting in an image. Adding a shadow to facial features also create very important effects. The shadows on a face or an object are important as they give more information about the form and three-dimensional construction. If a face is illuminated by a
