Picture the life

Spring, summer, autumn and winter. Each season in its own special and unique. Few would like to be photographed as the river in sunny warm weather, and about a snowman in severe frosts. Yes, we are talking about our good and loyal friend who accompanies us throughout life and talks about what happened before – photography.


If we go to the forest and nashtovhuyemosya a snake, it is bad. We zhahayemosya, look at it with fear and trying to flee away from this place. Another thing, when we come to the exhibition of works of some professional photographers and see the same snake. This raises another, diametrically opposite situation. We stop at the picture carefully its rozdyvlyayemosya, try to see it that flavor that attracted the attention of the author, share experiences with others. That this is the significance of photography. It makes perfect even in real life pushes us.

From the history of photography

History of the pictures are very interesting. It contains in itself etap emergence and implementation of the dreams of fixation and long-term preservation of images of the surrounding events, people and objects.

The cause of this photo can be considered our observation. The man noticed that the sheet while the sun darkens. And she wanted something new, not only the same draw. Man developed the theory of recording the desired items. Her efforts were not lost. With the camera obscura on tin plate covered with a layer of asphalt in 1826 Nepson managed to take a picture, which recognized the first in history. It was called “The view from the window.”

Since there was black and white photos, of course, having a certain way of improvement. Make such pictures was considered true art, people have had this inspiration, patience and knowledge. For example, the average photographer for the case required mandatory set of accessories. First of all camera and light meter, different lens objects, attachment to them, lenses, film. You should also have been enlarger, fotobak, trays, frames, instrument for hlyantsyuvannya shots, cutter, flashlight with a red light, photographic, reagents (developer, fixer acid, pure water). All this had to save somewhere.The process of making images, usually held at night, as specially equipped rooms in the dark people were mostly not. Note that here we are talking only about black and white images. A color photo appeared later. It involved a greater hassle. The author of the color photographs in 1861 was James Maxwell. It was after this discovery, to the twentieth century, including, a large photo of popularity suffered as such.

But even this achievement is still not enough to complete the ideal fotomaysternosti. Sony has in 1981 made the first digital picture. This meant there was no urgent need to buy film, shot as soon as recorded on the disc.Other companies are also not good use of their time. Thus, almost 10 years the company Kodak has released and your camera. She, of course, was already better than its predecessor.

Availability of digital photography has expanded this process, this device can be mounted in a mobile phone, and then – always to be “at hand”. To take a picture, do not know all the details of the case. In your set mode “automatically”, and smart device will make almost everything myself.

Photography and everyday life

Each photograph has the ability to transmit not only a lot of pleasant emotions and good mood. It reminds us of the different moments of our lives. Looking at it, we can call not only a location, weather, mood, and many other details. Especially if it gets into the hands of “psychic”. This once again proves that photography is endowed with a property to store information during its existence.

From the photographs you can think of many things. Not sure this should be a family albomchyk that we review every year or show guests. Photographs decorate the house. For example, you may well make them into a frame and put on the table. Also common is a tradition to hang their walls. They not only decorate your home, but also emphasize on who’s boss, remind of selected events in your life that you want to remember forever.

New photos – new professions

Picture a man gave a number of new and interesting jobs. First of all photographs, intermediate, and expert in his case. If today it may seem that this profession has deviated in the past, yet some 20-30 years ago it was extremely necessary. Of course, refers to a photo studio. They were in every city, they knew almost all the inhabitants. These were sent to take family photos, baby photos, photos for a passport for Komsomol ticket, graduate school, just to mention.

With the development of the press was necessary not only about something or someone to tell, but show it. This work could be fulfilled only by a professional photographer. Therefore, the staffing of various publications appeared these essential workers. Any modern publication necessarily contains many interesting pictures. This is what first attracted the attention of readers. Professional photographers are even higher in state institutions. They are for reference and periodicals capture moments of life and work of statesmen.

Photography and professional opinion

After a photograph of each year gained more and more spaces. Among the first was to use it, there were scouts. Today it is filled almost all sectors of our lives. This is historical photographs, and art, and photos of scientific discovery, and forensic and home … We can not imagine without any Photography wedding, birthday or anniversary. And of what interest we look yellowed photos of our progenitor, mysterious half-century old views of Kiev? Hard to say what will photograph a hundred years. But we can confidently say that the present images while also constitute a significant historic and aesthetic value.

Today we offer master fotospravoyu many fotoshool. This is where visitors can learn the art of photography.

In an interview a practicing photojournalist Oleksii Furman shared with us his thoughts on photography and his mastery.

Oleksii whether to attend fotoshool to master the art of photography?

– This primarily depends on the person. If it is able to motivate and organize themselves to independent study, it is the best way.

What determines how successful will photograph?

– Photography, like any art, is a double reflection: reality and the inner world of the artist. In my opinion, successful can call this a photo in which you can see the light of the photographer, his experiences. If you’re indifferent to what is photographed, the real, live pictures will not work.

What a way to overcome the man to professionalism in the field of photography?

– Professional photographers is, first, and most importantly, a life experience. The more situations in which people traveled, the wider range of experiences, the more opportunities to design in the last photo. Second, the professional has the experience of photographic, ability to respond quickly and to frame for a second. This is also the experience, but very different, purely specialist.

What you mean the phrase “perfect photo”?

– Renowned photojournalist Ian Hrarup in an interview said this thing: “In order to do photojournalism, need time, Empathy, Closeness and Respect. “For me is perfect and the photo you done with these things.

What can you recommend for beginners?

– I give simple advice: in order to learn photography, should often take pictures. Practice in this case is crucial. This is one way. Other – do not forget that the photographer should have a good artistic taste. To do this more often go to museums, watch high quality movies. Analyze, reflect and try on the basis of existing concepts to develop your own.

Today’s Photo is the objective witness of all the positive and negative that happens to us. Development fotospravy brought to a minimum expenditure of human effort to obtain accurate images. This is what is available to everyone but not everyone will be able to use it properly. Things without any decorations will tell future generations about us. And perhaps, by an image from the archives of our life someone will study this era.
