Conceptual photography is a type of conceptual art – is a photography genre in which the artist makes a photograph of a concept or illustrates an idea.
Usually the conception of the idea precedes the realization of the photography.
Creative photos are invaluable asset for any professional designer.
However when it comes to finding the right photo; one can easily spend hours searching for it. So here I have some imaginative examples of conceptual photography.
Photography is always about capturing the meaning, significance and essence of a moment in time, however, Imagination photography takes this idea to the extreme, by capturing a thought, idea, or message to the viewer and communicating it in a clever and interesting method. The idea is already there in the mind, all the elements required to convey that idea is setup up an then that perfect photograph conveying the concept, big or small, comes alive. Many a times, computers are used to give the picture its final touch, but still many photographers prefer the old style in getting the real life on to the camera. Conceptual photography brings up the creative side of the photographer.
Conceptual photography often involves the use of computer editing to achieve the desired effects. But, many photographers just use what is already available to them in front of the lens. Conceptual photography is an open door to imagination and creativity.
Conceptual photography – as a part of conceptual art – is a photography genre in which the artist makes a photograph of a concept or idea. In this type of photography, you try to convey a concept or message with a photograph.
The most successful conceptual photographers however, are those who are able to create a single message with a powerful photograph using simple and few elements. They ‘put in place’ the things and the beings which are the subject of the final photograph, and the placement of those things and beings ‘construct’ the concept, the idea, and the final outcome. The most successful conceptual photographs are those with very simple, clear backgrounds, where nothing but the subject(s) evokes the feeling or conveys the message. Conceptual photographs, or the photos that include special meaning behind the scene of the real objects in the photo, inspire and fuel the person’s creativity as you develop the ability to see the creative idea behind the photo.
Few photographers are using Photoshop to edit and process – all the magic happens in-camera. In this collection Life’s Prism sourced 70 imaginative and beautiful examples of this wonderful type of photography.
