ABOUT ART OF PHOTOGRAPHY
Art is an effect of translating ones thoughts and feelings into a media that can be understood by another person. An artist produces a body of work over a lifetime whether this is done through photography, music, painting or other media it is irrelevant and depends only on an artist’s personality and education. Personally I like art to be of quality. Just like in a good book. There should be a sense, a structure and a point.
Look at great painters. Not only did they have a vision but also they knew the techniques and they all had their own style. They didn’t stop developing their skills at the age of 16. Instead they were working hard and continuously learning.
I myself did go through painting and drawing to finally stay with photography, only because I love the final effect made with this technique, and the process of doing it. When I will get old and calm I will possibly get back to the painting.
The final photo depends on correct decisions such as the choice of the moment of the day, the lens, light and shadow, composition, perspective, colours, patterns, textures, balance, drama, settings of photo-camera (white balance, contrast, B&W), and so on.
The art of photography comes from the photographer’s ability to contemplate the visual aspects of the view, his decision of what to include in the frame and where and how big the subject should be in the frame.
