Mood Photography – How To Portray an Emotion?
What is the difference between a good photograph and an excellent one? First of all, an excellent photo is the one, which conveys not only the visual image, but the emotional environment as well. Photography becomes art once it crosses the borders of pure technology and gains the emotional coloring. A good photographer is the one, who has mastered all the practical techniques of photographing; but in order to become an art photographer one also needs to master the talent of communicating with the audience through his visual works.
When a picture shows the emotion, it usually refers to mood photography. We have devoted this gallery to this particular kind of photography art. Looking at the pictures below you may think that mood photography is all about such feelings as melancholy, gloom, sadness, and desolation. As you can see, many photographers have chosen scenes with fog to create the emotional atmosphere. Of course, such images do look gloomy, but on the other hand sooner or later fog will disappear and reveal even more intense colors and clearer shapes. Mood photography is unique because it requires audience active participation; such photography stimulates viewers’ emotional response, and that forms a real connection between an artist and a viewer.
