Photography is taking a unique direction lately. While the world of photography used to be about colors, saturation, and presets, different styles are becoming more and more popular. Here are trends that don’t show any signs of slowing down:
1. High Contrast
It seems that contrast is the angle that most photographs are shooting for today. Instead of blended colors, the more simple contrast is what draws the eye.
2. Harsh Light
Light. Lots of light. That seems to be the directive of fashion producers everywhere. The light creates interesting shadows that can bring out the features of certain models.
3. Black and White
In a world where every color is available in digital enhancements with SLR and DSL, you would think that color would be the trend. But leave it to fashion icons to change up the game. Black and white are a throw back to the classic images of the 30’s and 40’s and this duo-tone style is hot right now.
4. Direct Sunlight
If you can get natural light into your photos, do it. There is something about natural sunlight that artificial lights simply can’t capture.
Don’t stick to one or two nationalities if you’re shooting groups. Minorities are being put in more and more photos as time goes on and that’s a good thing.
When it comes to photography, it seems to center around the fashion industry and what the flavor of the moment is. However, as the world goes through cultural shifts, there seem to be calls for a simpler time. People want the vintage and natural style of yesteryear. As technology becomes more advanced it might actually become to make things more natural, in an ironic twist of fate.
