Photography is a great revolution in human society because it has allowed the human beings to capture memories for future in the form of images. This is the reason photography has become an eminent part of almost everyone and it has upgraded itself every time to provide the best.
From the time of black and white images to the color images, every image has a story to reveal about the subject in it and this is the reason the photographers now research more and more everyday so that a perfect image can be developed that can speak out everything that words cannot explain.
Real Photography that are not mere photos
There was a time when people used to visit the photography studio and the photographer used to ask them to stand or pose in a specific way for a proper image. The same concept is there still in industries like modeling and cinematography where poses and angles are provided great importance in order to get a perfect shot. Also you will notice the photographer dominating your natural looks while you have landed in a studio for an image to be used in your passport or any academic or official documents. There was also a time when photographers were hired for some special functions like marriages and here again they used to suggest for different poses for a proper photograph.
But in contrast to such photography that can be even described as stock photography, Real photography is much more preferred by people now. Stock photography may look good for a modeling shoot or for an official image, but in other cases it seems to mar the natural effects and feelings of the person to be photographed. Real photographs often tend to explain a story behind the photography that looks both natural and beautiful.
Subjects that are perfect for real photography
In general there is no particular subject for real photographs and this is the reason it can be said that the whole universe is the canvas for such photography. Real Photography will not only bring out the story that lies behind the image but also it will enhance the feelings of the subject photographed. Street photography is also a genre of this section where the photographer clicks picture in a busy street of different objects without letting telling them such as a beggar begging for some money, a shopkeeper arguing with his customer over something, a kid nagging her mother to get a toy displayed in the showroom glass, and many others. If you really love street photography then, you must check some interestingly clicked street photos.
Not only for streets but this type of photography can be done in other places also because it mainly tells you a story and can be stated as the perfect way of keeping your old memories alive forever. These days photographers who are hired for various events whether private or official, they will not ask you to pose, but they randomly click images of various subjects around them such as employees busy enjoying themselves over drinks, or a bride getting her final touches of makeup, a kid blowing off the candles on the cake, couples kissing each other for the marriage ritual and many more.
Things to consider in Real Photography
There are a number of things that has to be considered while you are taking a Real Photograph. Though this genre is said to be casual photography genre but still there are some of the eminent points that should be considered for a perfect shot.
- Before settling upon a subject for your photography, it is always advised to look around your surrounding well so that you can get something that is really unusual and has a story in it. Images can be clicked by anyone of anything but an expert if someone who knows and understands the subjects that can create magic.
- Also it is important that your subject is not aware that you are taking the image. If you tell your subject that you are taking his or her picture, they will get alert and the natural emotions and expressions of the face will fade away to be replaced by an artificial expression. This is the reason many of the photographers of Street Photography hide themselves somewhere to click pictures of their subject so that the subject is not distracted by the photographer.

An extraordinary balancing act

So, it can be no doubt said that this genre is the perfect one to fulfill the need of photography in life that is to keep the past memories always alive.
