Or, an image of a little child engrossed in watching a fly landing on his table? To bring forth beauty out of daily and common activities is one motive behind Bokeh Photography.
The other thought that works is the gadget that captures images in a quick flash of a split second; of course, it’s not difficult to picturize Bokeh Photography. Can You Feel the Delight?
Here in this article I have hand-picked more than 40 beautiful examples of Bokeh Photography to showcase and to inspire you to make bokeh photography a passion.
In terms of creativity and artistic vision Ben Heine is currently with few peers. His unique visual creations have been featured in newspapers, magazines and other publications worldwide and over the last few years his works have begun to populate art galleries and museums from Brussels and London to Turkey, Romania and South Korea. Today, you see his work here. It’s a bit late, I know, but I’ve only recently decided to publish innovative ideas from various designers and try to get for them a little more exposure so that they would be encouraged to create even more interesting projects.
Usually a multidisciplinary artist separates his work by its type, but Ben Heine decided to do things differently by combining photography and drawings in a way that is simply called: superb.
In the Pencil vs Camera project he takes photos of various places and then adds a modified section of that photo, drawn in such a way to make the picture more interesting and add a certain fantastic feeling to it, making it joyous by adding a drop of fantasy onto it.
I felt that an addition to the last article about still life photography had to be made and here it is with 25 new photos showcasing this wonderful but demanding art.
The pictures in this article, unlike the ones in the previous one, are mainly focused on still life photos that look like paintings. I know it looks like the photos have been retouched but actually this effect is created with the help of good lighting. Apart from these painting-like pictures, you will also see various photos that fall into the still life category but are quite different then the ones that I’ve been talking about.
Portrait photography features a person or group of people that displays the expression, personality, and mood of the subject. Like other types of portraiture, the focus of the photo is usually the person’s face, although the entire body and the background may be included.
The quality of a portrait photo relies on the photographer’s ability to take advantage of the subject’s pose and the light that is around him. The light, of course, doesn’t have to be natural. So many photographers use artificial light that this has become nowadays a sine que non condition of photography.
However, the photographers are creative apply other small techniques to make sure a portrait photo has the desired outcome and you will see some of these in the pictures below. One example would be colorful elements that are contrasting with the subject.
Tilt–shift photography is the use of camera movements on small and medium format cameras, sometimes specifically referring to the use of tilt for selective focus, often to simulate a miniature scene. Sometimes the term is used when the shallow depth of field is simulated with digital post-processing; the name may derive from the tilt–shift lens normally required when the effect is produced optically.
Tilt–shift encompasses two different types of movements: rotation of the lens plane relative to the image plane, called tilt, and movement of the lens parallel to the image plane, called shift. Tilt is used to control the orientation of the plane of focus, and hence the part of an image that appears sharp; it makes use of the Scheimpflug principle. Shift is used to adjust the position of the subject in the image area without moving the camera back; this is often helpful in avoiding the convergence of parallel lines, as when photographing tall buildings.
