The Art of Photography

Photography as visual language

The art of photography had a dynamic medium and different shapes that lets us engage with world. Photography is one of the most exciting medium to explore the world.

There is four basic way of how our image is

Photographing is like exploring number of different location through your camera ans that is why I say that photography is a dynamic medium ( from landscape to macro) etc. photography has different shapes that we engaged with the world and that is why the photographer looks this world differently.

There are four basic way of how our image is

    Vantage way

 Shooting from different angles like sometime standing, sitting or lying down on the ground to get vantage point to explore your subject. Try to interact with your subject from different angles and distance to distinguish your photos from straight eye level

    Framing

Framing describe what we position in our frame. Framing are the photographic element that can be use to lead the viewers eyes into  the frame focusing them on a particular point. Frames provide a sense of depth and a path for the eyes to explore.

     Optical

The light passes through glass or lens or some device to draw the image.

    Time

Time is operate from two levels one when we choose to expose the image and second how to use shutter speed to determine how long our image is expose.

Photography & light

Light is what makes photographic images. When we change the source of light , it creates different shapes emerge of subject.

Sometime creativity in the scenes is because of light because photography is all about paint with light. So light is like a brain in photography. You need to understand and learn how light interact within the scenes.

For example: the landscape photographers never shoot in mid of the day because the sun is directly overhead provide harsh light. Early morning or evening time is the best time when light travel in straight line provide soft light to photograph.

Vantage point & framing

shooting photographs  from different vantage point (angles). Sometimes standing, sitting or lying down on the ground etc in order to get different frame  of your subject. This simply means the you need to explore your subject from different vantage point.

Framing are the photographic element that can be use to lead the viewers eyes into  the frame focusing them on a particular point. Frames provide a sense of depth and a path for the eyes to explore.

Framing comes in two foam

  • Passive frame

Where the edges of the subject that you are photographing- its not outside the frame of the camera. The subject is fully contain within the frame

  • Active frame

Where the edges of the subject is extends beyond the framing of our image and it has a different relationship to the edges and corners.

Aperture & shutter speed

Aperture controls light, how much light needs to be projected on  camera sensor. More light in through smaller f/ number. Less light greater f/ number.

How much time that light is in contact with sensor is your shutter speed. The time for which the sensor remains exposed to light . shutter speed creates special effects like freezing and blurring the subject

 Everything is trade off

When capturing photographic images, we are trying to get correct expsure value. Exposure and the relationship between our shutter speed and aperture and the idea when we control how the light comes into the sensor. Every thing in photography is trade off.

We have to choose between aperture and shutter speed to determine how much light comes in. getting the balance between the time hits the sensor and the amount of light that comes through the sensor.

Makes ordinary as an extra ordinary

One of the best thing I love about photography is that its translate different ways of seeing and allows us to see the sorts of world that we experience in new and exciting ways. Photography is the best medium to translate an ordinary thing as an extra ordinary. Photographer can do whatever they want to, what they see in front of the lens.

Pixel & details

To explore the relationship between pixels and how that determines the details and information in our photographic images.
