Conceptual Photography: 50 Beautiful Examples
Conceptual photography is an art of getting your ‘concept’ across the mind of the viewer using just the contents of a photograph. It is a genre of photography where a photographer puts various things in the scenery so that his idea or concept becomes clear to perceive. Most of the times, computers are used for blending various objects into a photograph, but many photographers just use what is available to them. Some photographers just make sure that everything they need in the photograph is already available tangibly to them in the scene, while others put the object in-place using PhotoShop or other similar tools. Whatever the technique, conceptual photography is known to be one of the most creative genre of photography. Partly because it is harder as compared to other genres, but mostly because it takes a lot of time and patience to get that perfect conceptual shot.
Conceptual photography makes healthy use of graphical symbols to represent ideas, movements, moods, anything and everything that the photographer might want to include in the message of their photograph. Symbols with strong, well-established connotations are usually used, from racy red lipstick to a bleeding heart, shamrocks and clovers to a green dollar bill.
