A Brief Guide to Photography
Abstract Photography
Abstract photography is always in a state of constant flux. Abstract photographers keep experimenting with various avenues of art and art forms, including exploring all dimensions of the present, tracing lines and figurines in time and space and incorporating disorientation in art form – giving birth to a whole new approach to photography as opposed to the conventional.

Abstract photographers bring in innovative techniques and give a whole new dimension to photography by transporting and giving shape and form to new creative ideas and symbols. One can sense a certain kind of contemporary sensibility in abstract photography.

The inclination toward moving away from the centre and subverting central motifs and images is quite evident in abstract photography. The spatial aspect is toyed around with forms, positions and planes - digressing from the conventional notions of photography.

Abstract photography is not only about beautification through art alone, photos are meticulously composed and made to look like accidental snapshots at first glance. The focus is often on a trivial subject matter - off-beat and realistic - without pretending to beautify or transcend a photo through art. The viewer is drawn into the intrinsic, orderly space created by the photographer, an artificial world created by the aesthetic.

Abstract photography reveals the world in a very different light, like a vexed hall of mirrors, always in the quest to reach out for a higher order of unity and belief. The photographer uses the power of the aesthetics to generate an illusion for the viewer, and actually succeeds in taking the viewer’s focus away from experiencing the material world as it looks and feels like in real life.

Photo documentaries, surrealist imagery, representational photographic styles, postmodern irony etc. are topics often toyed around by abstract photographers.

Abstract photography is an amalgamation of reflections, visual vernacular contrasts and frames to capture the interior space of an image. It provokes the viewer’s perception into completely re-ordering what is already in order, coercing the viewer to lose all sense of spatial orientation.

Subject matters are also always weirdly scrambled and photos are presented like theatrical demonstrations.

Abstract photography today is a subtle inclination toward metaphysical optimism and a transition from the conventional weighty hindrance of material form. There is an appeal in abstract photography which details a fine balance between the real, space and subjectivity.

Contemporary Photography
Contemporary photography is always in a state of constant flux. Modern photographers keep experimenting with various avenues of art and art forms, including exploring all dimensions of the present, tracing lines and figurines in time and space and incorporating disorientation in art form – giving birth to a whole new approach to photography as opposed to the conventional.

Modern photographers bring in innovative techniques and give a whole new dimension to photography by transporting and giving shape and form to creative ideas and symbols. There is a translucent paradigm shift paving the way for some contemporary sensibility which is integral to modern photography.

Contemporary photography reveals the world in a very different light, like a vexed hall of mirrors, always in the quest to reach out for a higher order of unity and belief. The photographer uses the power of the aesthetics, and not any other aspect like mysticism or institutionalism, to generate an illusion for the viewer, actually succeeding in taking the viewer’s focus away from experiencing the material world as it looks and feels like in real life.

Travel Photography
Travel photography has no geographical limitations. A travel photographer tries to capture landscapes, time and place, peoples and their cultures, without any biased adherence to conventions, and in its raw natural state.

Every place has its unique characteristics and its own particular look. A good travel photographer tries to capture the essence and all the good qualities of a place and brings it to life on film.

It is highly unlikely for anyone to long remember the dew-laden lilies simmering in the backdrop of the first rays of the sun, the thrill of a steep climb down from a waterfall, the awe of gazing into the sunset as the night steadily envelops dusk into darkness, the rare sighting of a musk deer, or the adrenaline of white river rafting.

A good travel photographer must ensure that all these moments are triggered back to life on film, and more importantly, he is able to communicate what he felt while capturing the moment, with his viewers.

Before a travel photographer sets out on a journey and chooses a particular destination to photograph, he should engage in some research, find out interesting information about the place and take note of first impressions before he starts taking photos.

All these elements and methods together combine to sum up what defines good travel photography.
