The Most Amazing Types of Photography

Article by Liza Elizna

We, living on this planet have evolved over the years, keeping in mind the changes that have taken place all over these years. There has to be something that can reveal things from the past. We have seen the world ages ago and how it looked thanks to the wall paintings. It has been recorded the South-East Asian countries have paintings that back to the late 3rd Century BC. Look at the world today, as far as I can see it we have conquered hill tops and reached the deepest abyss of the sea. How do we get all this stuck in our heads? The only way we can remember all this through some amazing photography.

Photography is the name goes is defined as the process or an activity of creating still or moving pictures which is done by using sensitive radiation through a medium such as a photographic film or an electric censor. The word “photograph” was coined together by Sir John Herschel. The two Greek words are “photos” which means light and “graphe’” which means either “representation by means of line” or “drawing”. Amazing photography is no different than photography it’s that just some photographers with their level of experience tend to know much more about the different angles and the lighting for the photographs.

Now every camera crew always has an experienced photographer who understands about the lighting which is required for the shot and then explains to them the best possible angle. When it comes to wild life photography the camera is kept on for 24/7 till they capture that special moment they’re looking for. As one split second can cause them a loss of thousands of dollars, forget the money but the fact that a scene of that sort might not happen for years to come. If you a creature crying and the battery of your camera has given you the answer, then how will you comply? How do you then expect the photographs it to be of the category of amazing photography?

Another task at photography is editing the pictures. All the photographers who end up getting such great photos are generally good at editing or when they sit with an editor in their studio they know what exactly they want. Editing is often a powerful tool and sometimes can be used to the advantage of the photographer. Say for instance if you have a glitch in the photograph on the character itself and you cannot ignore it. Then you can probably use a photo editing software and edit out that part of the photo or perhaps change the contrast. The power of editing is big and it is often used to hide the stretch marks or hair found on any of the models after the shoot. In fact most of the fashion magazines have professional who are masters at the editing software and in turn give the company some amazing photography.

The field of photography is extremely exciting and adventurous, which is why there is a lot of crowd in this field. Everyone wants their pictures to be recognized and appreciated. But everyone cannot become a photographer. A photographer possesses his own unique style and method of taking pictures. Natural talent and skill will help a photographer to achieve success in this field. For some people photography is a mere passion or a hobby practiced in free time. But for many it is a profession which earns them their income. However difficult achieving success is in this film there are many who are being celebrated. There are many fields in photography. It is not a restricted profession. One such field is artistic photography.

We all have taken pictures at some point in our lives. Mostly we take pictures when we are on a vacation or if there is an event like birthdays, weddings and reunions. Taking pictures are a method of capturing moments so that they can be remembered later. Pictures stimulate a lot of emotions. If we look at a picture of a delicious ice cream our mouths would water. If a mother looks at her daughter’s wedding pictures her eyes would water in happiness. Pictures thus play a very important role in our lives. Let us see what artistic photography is all about.

Artistic photography is one of the most popular fields of photography. These pictures are taken in order to fulfill the creative vision of the artist. An artistic photographer would like to show his creativity and imagination in his pictures. Artistic photographers require special skill and talent. A photographer needs to take pictures that convey something to the viewer. The person seeing the pictures must feel something. All photographers try to put in something in their pictures. Either it is a message, a story or anything about their own personal self. This has to be reflected adequately in the picture.

Other than the field of artistic photography there are several other fields in the profession of photography. There are fields like nude photography, commercial photography, food photography, wild life photography, underwater photography, aerial photography, still life photography, glamour photography, nature photography, candid photography, forensic photography, fire photography, secret photography, macro photography, street photography, sports photography, celebrity photography, architectural photography, travel photography, fashion photography, portrait and weeding photography. These are the numerous fields of photography. By this list we can see that this is not a restricted profession.

Anyone who wants to pursue a career can choose any of the above fields and specialize in it. There are several courses available in the field of photography that one can follow and a get a certified degree or diploma. There are various internship opportunities as well that helps an individual start his or her own career. If you want to know more about artistic photography you can log on to one of the several websites available on the internet and see the works of established and qualified photographers and gain more knowledge.

I have always been a huge fan of photography since I was a small child. I enjoy being a professional photographer each day of my life as well.
