14 + 1 ART PHOTOGRAPHY TO FILL YOU WITH INSPIRATION

If we talk about photography, we talk about art, but instead, not all photography is artistic photography. We talked about it here , but maybe you lacked a little more inspiration. And as we love to navigate by selecting images that we think can help you to get the artist you have inside, I suggest you take a look at this article where, through various techniques, the authors have reached an image that goes beyond the objective visualization of the scene. We see it?

1. SILHOUETTES

The silhouettes are the simplest form of an object (we are only able to appreciate the shape of the contours), but still they have a strong visual impact that we can use in our favor when composing our scenes.

2. MACRO

Entering the world of macro photography has, in itself, a magical component such as the proportion of objects, without forgetting to play with color, textures and light. Remember that an image is composed of many decisions and characteristics that make it be as it is

3. “BAD” TIME

We talked a while ago about the immense artistic possibilities that bad weather has: In bad weather good photos , I told you. And I keep defending it ;-). The atmosphere that rain or fog, among others, are capable of giving us, the feelings that are capable of evoking, in short, the ability they have to move us to shake and inspire certain feelings are, without a doubt, opportunities that you cannot Let escape to enhance your more artistic side.

4. PAINT WITH LIGHT

You know that photography is literally that, painting with light, and the possibilities offered by the domain of light are endless. Learning to play with her, to control the exposure, to model the light, to anticipate the result, etc., will make you the photographer or photographer you have always dreamed of being.

Here are 15 resources to master the light in your photographs (collection of articles)

5. MOVEMENT

The movement is not just that unpleasant fact of some of our images when we are working in low light. The conscious, deliberate, provoked or exploited movement is an artistic resource that can bring us the most artistic images.

Leverage and understand the movement is a great resource in artistic photography

6. HIGH PASSWORD AND LOW PASSWORD

They are completely opposite in terms of technique and results. One is light, purity, joy and white (high key) and the other is mystery, elegance, and black (low key), but both are capable of effectively transporting the viewer to these feelings. You can read how to get both techniques in this article.

 7. SHADOWS

Another creative resource that will help you strengthen your more artistic side. You can play to isolate the shadow and simply suggest instead of showing or use it to add more interest and visual power to the image. Well used, shadows are a great artistic resource.

8. DEPTH OF FIELD

Playing with the depth of field to highlight our protagonist isolating the background, is a tool widely used in photography. Remember that the depth of field is controlled through the aperture of the diaphragm (the more open it is, the smaller area focused on the image).

9. FLARE

They are as capable of destroying an image as giving it a touch of the most beautiful and artistic. I do not know why, I love :-). So do not stop experimenting with those sunset lights that slip through your goal, you will see how more than once and twice, you love what you see.

10. TEXTURE

The texture transports us directly to the touch, it transmits us, therefore, an impression, a reality, that you can take advantage of for your images.

Use the textures of the elements you photograph

11. MINIMALISM

Simplification of the images make them easier to read and, consequently, have more obvious messages for the viewer.

12. REFLEXES

Have you thought about the multiple possibilities that reflexes can offer you?

13. SUGGEST INSTEAD OF SHOWING

It is not always necessary to show the whole to get a good image.

Suggest

14. LEARN TO EDIT

Whether or not you love editing, knowing a little about it is essential to achieve the results you want. It is not necessary that you manipulate your images to make them artistic if you do not want to, but learning to improve the image through small tweaks will help you finish profiling your photography and your initial idea.

 

15. DEEPEN

The main key to getting an artistic photograph is that you do not stay in a first impression. Search more, deepen, strive, change the angle, the perspective, look for a better environment and, above all, replace the shortcomings you may have, with imagination. That is, you may want to photograph a door, you can stand in front and take the photo like that without more, but you can also wait for someone interesting to pass in front, you can leave it ajar to increase the curiosity of the viewer, you can wait for it to have an interesting shadow over…

Go beyond

If you practice enough and gradually you acquire photographic language through the knowledge of light, composition and the different techniques that this art offers us, you will see how, slowly but surely, you advance in your ability to express yourself in a way artistic.
