Different applications of photography

  1. 1. Different Applications of Photography
  2. 2. There are many different types of photography • War Photography • Fashion Photography • Music Photography • Wedding Photography • Product Photography • Architectural Photography • Travel Photography • Fine Art Photography • Documentary Photography To name a few…
  3. 3. What is Fashion Photography? Fashion Photography is the combination of two art forms, Fashion and Photography. The purpose of Fashion Photography is to create a photo that is aesthetically pleasing while promoting something such as a colour, product or style. Fashion Photography is more artistically focused on a subject. For example the clothes or hair, how you make them come to life could easily demonstrate how good the photograph is.
  4. 4. Annie Leibovitz Annie Leibovitz is a Fashion Photographer. She the highest paid photographer in the US, capable of earning 5 million pounds a year. Her rates have been as high as $250,000 a day.
  5. 5. Early Life • She was born in Waterbury, Connecticut, on October 2, 1949,Anna- Lou Leibovitz is the third of six children of Marilyn Edith and Samuel Leibovitz. She is a third-generation American; her father's parents were Romanian Jews. • Her mother was a modern dance instructor of Estonian Jewish heritage. Her father was a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Air Force. The family moved frequently with her father's duty assignments. It was there where she took her first pictures when he was stationed in the Philippines during the Vietnam War.
  6. 6. Career • In 1970 Annie Leibovitz started her professional career as a staff photographer working for the start-up rock music magazine ‘Rolling Stones’. She was being paid $47 a week, this is equivalent to £189 in today’s money. • Within 2 years, 23-year-old Annie was promoted to chief photographer. A title she held for the next 10 years. • In 1975 her position with the magazine afforded her the opportunity to accompany the Rolling Stones band on the 1975 international tour
  7. 7. Rolling Stone’s • While with Rolling Stone, Leibovitz developed her trademark technique, which involved the use of bold primary colors and surprising poses. • The co-founder and publisher of the Rolling Stone’s magazine Jann Wenner has credited her with making many Rolling Stone covers collector's items, most notably an issue that featured a nude John Lennon curled around his fully clothed wife, Yoko Ono. Taken on December 8, 1980, Leibovitz’s photo of the former Beatle was shot just hours before his death.
  8. 8. Where her photos were used Annie Leibovitz’s photos were used on front covers of the Rolling Stones magazine, many high profile advertisements and in the Nation Portait gallery in Washington D.C. Annie Leibovitz is seen as a portrait photographer who can capture an emotion with in a single frame. She said herself “The purpose of my pictures are not to just promote the magazine. My job is to take a photo that sells the magazine”. Annie Leibovitz’s photos made people buy magazines and products all over the world.
  9. 9. Every photographer has their own style of photography, this makes their work recognizable to the trained and sometimes the untrained eye. This is no different for Annie, her pictures are recognizable for their bright colors, intense lighting, and above all, for unique and surprising poses. Annie’s Style
  10. 10. In this picture, the most noticeable thing is the background. This is because its so bright it draws your attention. We can tell that the theme of the photo is Summer. We can see the Subject, Keira Knightley is lying down on different coloured flowers while wearing a bright summer dress. This is why it also makes the Subject seem as if she is blending into the background. Its hard to tell if this photo has been taken with natural light or not. Because there is no reflection of a flash or artificial lighting in Keira’s eyes which is the usual dead giveaway. Also the lighting has a warm temperature to it, this suggests even more so that the sun was the source of light. But at the same time the more I look at the grass and flowers the more I think it looks fake. It’s is a possibility that it is a fake patch of grass that could have easily been taken to a studio where again it is another possibility to make artificial lighting look like light from the sun. Either way it’s a brilliant photo, but the lighting has baffled me.
  11. 11. Its hard to notice Keira’s unusual Pose, which is one of Annie Lebovitz’s many signatures on her photos. The Framing is amazing, the way Keira’s head is centered in frame, but her body exits the frame through the bottom left hand corner. Last but not least Annie manages to break the rule of thirds in this photo and get away with it.
  12. 12. Rule of thirds The theory is that if you place points of interest in the intersections or along the lines that your photo becomes more balanced and will enable a viewer of the image to interact with it more naturally. Studies have shown that when viewing images that people’s eyes usually go to one of the intersection points most naturally rather than the center of the shot – using the rule of thirds works with this natural way of viewing an image rather than working against it.
  13. 13. The composition of the photo is beautiful, the similarities of colour of the sky and the dress help the Background to complement the Subject in the Foreground. Artificial lighting has been used as we can see the Sun in the background and then we can see there is another light source lighting the subject’s hair, face and arm. The texture of the background is softer than the foreground because the depth of field is shallow. This makes the background out of focus and soft, and the Subject in focus and sharp Again we see the Annie’s signature, her subject is holding an unusual pose.
  14. 14. Different Applications Of Photography War photography War photography involves photographing armed conflict and its effects on people and places. The purpose is to document, inform and educate.
  15. 15. • With the invention of photography in the 1830s, the possibility of capturing the events of war to enhance public awareness was first explored. Although ideally photographers would have liked to accurately record the rapid action of combat, the technical insufficiency of early photographic equipment in recording movement made this impossible. Evolution of Photography
  16. 16. In this day and age… This is the Equipment a War Journalist Photographer carries with him while he is working. His name is Zoriah Miller.
  17. 17. Zoriah was born January 27, 1976 is an American photojournalist and war photographer. Although working as a photographer from a young age Miller's career did not take off until late 2005 when a photograph of his showing one result of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami was published by Newsweek. Zoriah Miller
  18. 18. Zoriah is a freelance photographer, he plans his trips and then has meetings with Magazines to ask them what type of photos they are looking for while. He goes to these dangerous war torn areas to take photo’s with no guarantee that he will be getting paid for his photos. How He Gets Work
  19. 19. Zoriah Miller’s photography is very distinctive. Even though he does appreciate colour, we can tell he is attracted to Black and White Photography because very few of his photos are in Colour. The themes of Zoriah’s photo’s are poverty, sadness, and death, but the texture of his photos are never rough. Everything he shoots looks soft and glossy. It’s an interesting style. Also he likes to use natural lighting, but will use artificial lights when he has to. Zoriah’s photos are very expressive, I believe he wants to create an emotional response with the viewers, Zoriah says that he wants to use his equipment to make a change to the world.
  20. 20. To a lot of people this photo might look like two people are playing with sand. In actual fact it’s the African people making a large amount of food to most likely feed their village. This photography is very interesting, it could have been taken with artificial lighting because we can see the reflection of lights on the rim of the metal bowl. But at the same time from the motion blur on the food we can tell that Zoriah was using a slow shutter speed. The only reason for him to be using a slow shutter speed would be let in more light in because it’s dark, which then means he wasn’t using a flash. If he really was using a flash then the only explanation I have for him to be using a slow shutter speed would be for him to achieve that desired motion blur effect to give his photograph have a soft texture. Photo Analysis
  21. 21. This photo is an example of Documentary Photography. The only light source in this photo is the Sun which is coming from behind the subject in the back ground, this in addition with the black and white effect creates a Silhouette on the man. Because this photo is in black and white it creates contrast and distortion for the viewers, it stops us from seeing exactly what he is doing but it still leaves us with the impression that he is going through some sort of hardship. The framing is purposely at an angle, maybe to add some creativity to the photo. Turning the camera 45degrees is something not seen often, its something that is definitely frowned apon in the photography world. Also I feel like could be a religious link to this photo, the Subject has a similar pose as the man we know as Jesus Christ. This photo still has Zoriah Miller’s signature soft look but at the sametime the fierce sky stops the photo looking as soft as some of Millers other work.
  22. 22. War vs Fashion Even though War Journalist photographers are not as popular as Fashion Photographers, we can see this is the case from their salaries. (Annie Leibovitz made up to $250,000 a day for some of her projects. Zoriah Miller wasn’t even guaranteed pay for his photos.) Both forms of photography are important. The two applications of photography are completely different. War Photography is about documenting, informing and educating, where as Fashion Photography is about advertising and selling. Both forms of photography are important, but I believe War photography is a much more important application purely for the fact that its news and its how we find out what happens in other parts of the world. War Photography creates awareness which can save lives. The most Fashion Photography can do is make a lot of money.
