Saturday, March 1, 2014

There are many types of photography. One can choose the mode they want to focus their field on or may be dabble on two areas or three. Listed below are the different kinds to help you understand each area.

1. Wedding and Portrait Photography
This is a popular item because everyone wants to have excellent photographs of their momentous day. It requires a skilled photographer to capture a particular smile, and a certain glance. They normally take more than a hundred various photos in black and white, color and sepia. They would take only the best and present these to the newlyweds.

2. Glamour and Fashion Photography
This photography normally includes models. Glamour photography is well known in men's magazine and advertising since it focuses mainly on the model. Fashion photography focuses on a product or clothes.

3. Advertising Photography
This is shot mainly for the reason to sell a product. It is recommended to have a decent set of professional photographers on hand in cases of design firms or advertising agency.
4. Food Photography
This is used for packaging, advertising and editorial. It is like still life photography; however, it needs expert skill and high-quality equipment to capture the essence of food.

5. Fine Art Photography
This is taken to execute a vision, and the product will be purchased directly by a client. It can be found in exhibits, directory or at a museum.

6. Photojournalism

Personalize Your Art Decor - Photography

In our series of Art and Decorating Articles, we have discussed the value of art as perhaps the least expensive way to create the ambiance you want to achieve for your home or office. We have provided our insights into how to select the pieces that best meet your needs and how to hang your choices in the easiest and most effective way. Now we would like to begin a series of Articles on the Various Genres of Art.

Remember the choice must be yours, reflecting the mood you wish the living space to convey and the personal joy it brings to you every time you view it.

We all have a favorite place we love, that brings us joy. It may be a secluded forest, or a bright sun filled beach, or the peaks of majestic mountains. For each of us, there are special people that bring us joy and peace. Why not use the special places and people to create the joy and peace of your living space.

Today, across the internet, local and national professional photographers offer a wide variety of photographic art. With new reproduction techniques, photographic art is available in all sizes and on different backgrounds including canvas. Local artists are your best bet if you want familiar scenes. Depending on your style, even historic photo art is available such as the famous "kiss" from the cover of Life Magazine at the end of World War II.

While photography is almost 200 years old, the advent of the digital camera has changed the game allowing anyone to create the fantastic images you desire; and allow you to share the pride in your own picture decor.

Getting started on creating your own photographic art is easier than you think. The first step is getting the camera. Don't get hung up on an expensive camera, you don't need it. A great shot is as striking to an ordinary camera as to an expensive camera. With a digital camera you can see immediately what you have captured and have the ability to re-shoot the picture until it is just right. When taking your photo be sure you have enough light to bring out the focus of your picture. Also, don't forget the background if you are photographing a person or object keeping the background simple and light to bring out the subject. In nature scenes, the background of the ocean, trees, or flowers adds depth to make the photo natural and pleasing.

Once you have captured the scene you want (whether your own or from a photo artist), don't forget the frame. The final presentation of the framed photographic art is important to show the work to its best advantage.

Photographic frames come in two basic styles which are metal or wood and are available in almost all colors and styles from plain to ornate. A simple black metal frame allows the artwork to stand on its own and is an especially good choice if you are hanging multiple pictures. A bleached white wood frame is often used for seashore scenes to contrast the blue green color of the water for an added natural look. Wood frames stained in the appropriate color can highlight forests or mountain scenes, again creating a natural feel.

Which ever way you choose to go; purchased photo art or creating your own, you can have pride in creating the unique ambiance for your living space and feel good from the memories that are always there for you.

Is Landscape Photography Really Fine Art?

It happens to me a lot. A potential buyer comes in to my gallery (I have many different artists, in several mediums), and then tells me on how they like painting, or sculpture, or {enter media here} more than photography. They say, "I mean all they do it point the camera and push the shutter. HA!

Photography is an Art
If you doubt me, go try to take great image that will sell to others. I don't understand why I its required for me to argue this point with people, but I find I'm doing it way more than I should. Photography is more than recording the scene as you see it. Anyone can go to swinging bridge in Yosemite Valley and snap a photo of Half Dome. Only the best photographers have the persistence, the understanding, and the expertise to make a photograph from that view that qualifies as a work of art. Don't trust me? Try it.

The principles of Art are critical to a great photograph
These values are not unique to photography, but have been around for Thousands of years. The Romans were using them in their architecture, Da Vinci used them in the Mona Lisa. Renior, Monet, Pollack, they all used them. Every famous work of art has these in common, and photography is no exception. Composition, line, shape, balance, the golden mean; if you don't understand them, and want to make amazing images, go learn them, and then learn how to include them into your imagery. You will see a colossal change in your photographs when you do.

The skill and craftsmanship necessary in Photography is subtler, but just as important
"But it takes so much expertise and aptitude for a artist to refine his skill!" It does, but no less than a photographer's. The photographer begins creating his ultimate print before he ever takes the picture. He studies the color and contrast in the image, and visualizes what his definitive work of art will look like. Photoshop makes the process less difficult than the darkroom, but is it just as important as it was 20 or 30 years ago.

To all the supporters of Fine Art Photography out there, I congratulate you for understanding the genius inherent in a great image. I express gratitude to you for supporting those photographers who take hold of that moment to bring you their version of beauty. Photographers: keep shooting and keep refining your art. Keep on presenting us with beautiful photographs. To everyone else: Go try it yourself. Get past just taking pictures at roadside viewpoints and try to us something different, show us the world in a way that only you see it.

Limited Editions in Films, Music and Photography - Fact Or Fiction?

The exponential growth in digital technologies in the past 20 years has revolutionised the market for the reproduction of art through digital means. This applies to the visual arts in film of photography, as well as in music. Re-mastered versions of old - and no so old - movies, of classic albums and of archetypal images in photography are all now common currency, and the market for such images has been revolutionary.
But with this revolution has come a proliferation of terms to describe the various versions of the source material and for the wannabee collector of fine art reproductions (for example) it becomes increasingly vital to understand the genuine investment opportunity and the marketing-driven hype.
So what are the terms currently in use to define the additional value of a classic or popular image or movie? Terms used in collectible popular culture include concepts such as "special", "deluxe" or "limited edition". These terms are often market-driven, selling the same basic product by marketing improved versions of film DVDs, music and video games. That this can sometimes simply be a matter of adjusting the packaging has an implied danger of demeaning the idea of "limited edition" away from it's root meaning and value.
The term "collector's edition" is also used. This again is a term which can be applied to various media such as books, prints or recorded music and films. But it can also apply to cars or motorcycles for example. A "collector's edition" implies that the number of copies produced is restricted; but the restriction can stop at a very high number indeed, and this needs to be known and understood.
Modern technology has changed the controls available to the concept of a Limited Edition. In early days of printing and print reproduction of images, traditional printmaking techniques could only produce a small number of top quality images before wear-and-tear on the plate (especially in some etching techniques and in drypoint printing) took it's toll. This meant that longer print runs delivered passable but inferior quality images. To limit the print run was a necessity, which modern digital technology does not have to face.
Thus it is important for would-be collectors to research the provenance of any limited edition in the digital age. Naturally, some collectors have a great desire to have all released editions of a personal favourite, or a classic piece. This in itself has its own value of course. However, where the need is to understand the intrinsic, stand-alone value of an individual limited edition item, then the provenance becomes vital in assessing the investment value.
In the case of photographic reproductions, the original artist's print, carefully produced directly from his work, and printed under the artists' supervision are those which attract value over time. The most common way of producing collectable prints in the modern digital era is to scan the original negative (in the case of images from traditional photographic tools), or balancing a digital file from a digital camera, then output the image, usually retouched, on specially-selected media types using archival inks. Thus very fine quality coated papers can be used to make delicate, beautiful prints in defined limited numbers, which can be certified and verified as authentic. In this way, genuine investment opportunities can be realised.
