Photography – Pure Imagination
A5 Pure Imagination is a new concept in photography. Its principle goal is to combine the creative and technological aspects of photography to create an impression of reality that is pure. The pure imagination in photography means that the image produced is not dependent on the technical aspects of the camera or lens used. With a pure imagination, the photographer is free to explore other photographic mediums.
Pure imagination in photography does not mean that the image produced would be unoriginal. It is about the freedom of a photographer to roam around with his or her creativity, and not being limited to the traditional models of photography such as film and photographs. This also goes hand in hand with the use of digital cameras where the photographer is not limited to using film. Digital photography gives photographers the freedom to make a digital photo that has the same texture, color, and amount of detail as a regular photograph.
A photographer may, for instance, make a black and white photograph, and then edit it by adding detail in the background. He or she can also add a small amount of color to it, because this will give emphasis to the picture. The overall effect of this is that the picture has a sense of realism. This is what we call pure imagination in photography.
However, there is more to pure imagination than just giving pictures that have a sense of realism
It also refers to the quality of the picture itself. In other words, it can be said that pure imagination is about making pictures that your viewers will love.
For instance, imagine you are taking a picture of your kids swinging on their swing set. You may think of putting them in front of a fire so that they get a chance to see the flames up close. What about putting them in the woods with a waterfall to give them a closer view of the water? These are all examples of pure imagination in action, and when done well, can end up taking many beautiful photographs.
There is another kind of pure imagination, however, that you don’t often hear about. This is called “dream photography.” This is photography that doesn’t necessarily involve using a flash. Instead, a photographer will take a picture while he or she is sitting very still, sometimes for hours. Then, using some sophisticated equipment, the picture is brought into life through the colors and the lighting.
Now, you might say that there is nothing more beautiful than a picture taken in total darkness
Actually, there are some photographers who take such photographs. They use pure imagination in conjunction with proper lighting to create the perfect photograph. And, yes, there are some photographers who do use lights to help enhance the images of their subjects. But, most photographers feel that pure imagination is the best way to capture images without the use of extra lights. They feel that it is the essence of photography, the reason why the photographs created in this manner are so special.
In conclusion, there are many ways to use pure imagination in photography. A photographer can capture a subject in total darkness, and enhance it by using the appropriate lighting. Or, the same photographer could take a photograph of two identical subjects lying in a field, and change just the aspect of one of them just slightly – this would cause the other subject to stand out. The photographer has just increased the intensity of one aspect of the image – and reduced the intensity of the other – without using any additional equipment.
