Portraiture
  • Depicting people the way you see them

Some History
  • Throughout history people have sought to produce
    images either of themselves or of others. The
    problem is that the skills required to paint or
    draw portraits are in short supply, and therefore
    expensive. Until the eighteenth century,
    therefore, portraits were generally regarded as
    the privilege of the wealthy.
  • In any case, artists are able, through this
    medium, not only to depict what they see, but
    what they believe or prefer to portray. There are
    several instances in which a famous personality
    has been painted on numerous occasions, and have
    such striking differences that it is difficult to
    know what the sitter really looked like!
  • The invention of photography marked a watershed
    as far as portraiture was concerned, and it is
    not difficult to understand why photography, from
    the earliest days, had such an instant appeal
    both in America and in Europe, particularly in
    this area. Portraiture, once only for the
    well-to-do, was now available to all. There was
    a lot of money to be made out of the practice.
    One of the earliest photographers, Richard Beard,
    was said to have earned forty thousand pounds in
    one year (a large sum today - a fortune then!)
  • Today, photographers are pushing the medium of
    photography in many ways, but especially in
    portraiture. The need/want of portraits for
    occasions is still widely practiced, but the
    photographers are getting more creative with
    them. Portraits are also being used in conceptual
    work and outside of the studio.

Landscapes
  • Photographs of scenery
  • Landscapes, Seascapes, Cityscapes

Some History
  • The history of landscape photography is closely
    tied to the history of exploration in the
    American West. Photographers since the birth of
    the medium have explored wild lands for art as
    well as science. Much has changed in a century
    and a half, yet surprising similarities remain
    between the first landscape masters and those
    working today.
  • Though 50 years of work preceded him, Ansel Adams
    is the spiritual father of American landscape
    photography. Not only is he perhaps the most
    recognizable name in all of photography, but his
    work transcended art and science to make him an
    icon of popular culture as well.
