The art of photography
The art of photography.
First of all, I will start with portrait photography. It is photography of a person or group of people that displays the expression, personality, and mood of the subject. A portrait is not a snapshot, but a well composed image in a still motion. The first time this type of photography was taken in 1839 by Robert Cornelius. The picture he produced that day was the first photographic self – portrait. Nowadays these types of portraits aren‘t unique. Many people takes selfies by their mobile phone, but it isn‘t a professional photo. I really enjoy Steve McCurry, David Lazar and Jimmy Nelsson portraits, which are known all over the world. One of my favourite Steve‘s McCurry portraits is ‘‘Afghan Girl‘‘, which was taken in Pakistan in 1984.
