In photography, the technical and the creative go hand in hand. Almost everywhere you go you have been impacted by a photograph. You have either been the person behind the camera, the one posing, or the one staring at an advertisement in a magazine. In this article we will take a look at different types of photography.

Event photography

Event Photography is the art form of capturing photos wherever people gather to share experiences during a wide variety of important occasions, from personal events like weddings or birthday parties to large public gatherings like corporate events, galas, award ceremonies, and music festivals. Typically, the goal for any event shoot is to compile a variety of posed and candid photographs of both people and scenery.

“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”

 Aaron Siskind

Product Photography

If a picture is worth a thousand words, a stunning product picture is worth a thousand website visits. Showcasing your products in your online store with high-quality images can be the winning difference between a conversion and no sale at all.

There’s far more to product photography than showing potential customers what your product looks like. Well-considered photos can put your product in context, helping a customer see how it might fit into their own life.

Portrait Photography

Portrait photography is about capturing the essence, personality, identity and attitude of a person utilizing backgrounds, lighting and posing. The goal is to capture a photo that appears both natural and prepared to allow the subject’s personality to show through. Portrait photographs are also required for countless commercial purposes, such as passports, professional biographies, security passes, and other documentation.

Arhitectural Photography

From the pyramids of Giza to the temples of Ancient Rome, from a suburban home to a soaring modern skyscraper, architecture is one of the most dynamic art forms etched into the fabric of human civilization. In architecture no two structures are alike, and no two angles yield the same image.

When compared to other photography fields, this kind of photography is less dynamic as it demands you to spend a lot of time contemplating a scene or an environment.

Food photography

Food photography is an art and it can be used to breathe new life or give a whole new dimension to the food we eat. It can also be used commercially for advertising, marketing and more. Restaurants make use of food photography for their menus and advertisements. You can also see food photography being used for food packaging etc. A great food photograph can make a viewer hungry, it can convince a customer to order a dish and it can sell a lot of recipe books.

Landscape photography

A great landscape photograph transports the viewer and gives them the sense of being there and seeing something incredible. When we look at a landscape, our eyes travel over it and selectively focus on the elements that we find appealing.

Our field of vision encompasses a great deal of the scene, but our eyes and brains have the ability to ignore all except the most alluring details.

Conclusion

No matter where you go photography plays into your life somehow. We don’t realize how big of an impact photography truly has on us until we see the details of our life hidden in a photograph. When you flip through your photo album and start looking for those details you suddenly realize you are truly blessed. A photograph keeps a moment frozen in time so we have it forever.
