When you think of photography, you often think of the well-known and iconic images of fashion, wildlife, people, commercial and holiday photos. But what other kinds of photography are there?
From the beginning of photography, the point of it was to document events. Today, the point of photography is to create art. It may not be commercial, and it may not necessarily be about people but the point of photography is to tell a story or to capture some sort of emotion, a point that will last forever.
The point of photography may have changed and been streamlined but the artist remains, without ever being branded. The photographer still has to go through many things in order to be appreciated and valued.
Photography can also be about many perspectives. Perspective is one of the most important things to take into consideration when shooting a photograph. If you are in the sea, you have two perspectives. But if you are in a city, it can be four or five perspectives, depending on where you are.
So, how do you shoot from one perspective to another? Some photographers can tell you by their body language, but some do it naturally as you are going about your business.
Photography is basically a natural journey. There is nothing too complicated in the process of capturing an image. A picture is made in just moments when light meets the subject and in a few seconds, it takes form.
There is a lot of subject matter, you can shoot anywhere – sea, land, sky, ground, and air, but still, the main thing is to get your point across and captivate your viewers. Every photographer does this differently.
Remember, the point of photography has to do with capturing the emotions. Try to bring in more points of view and allow them to impact the image. After all, you are a photographer and emotions are what you are looking for.
One of the main elements that must be learned in photography needs to be working under pressure. Even the best photographers work under pressure, it’s their ability to work under pressure that sets them apart from other photographers.
The same goes for photography in any kind of event. Even in the most special event of a birthday, there is always one photo that captures the entire moment. Photography is a skill that you need to work on to become the best.
Photography is not only about shooting; it is also about developing your skills to work at different angles, work under different lighting conditions, and different subjects to give your photos a whole new realm of creativity. It’s one thing to look beautiful in a photograph but quite another to feel comfortable in it and be able to capture that feeling in a very personal way.
