ARTS REVIEWER

What are some of the popular subjects that contemporary Filipino digital photographers capture?

1. SELF-EXPRESSION
-it is undeniable that photography has helped people express themselves. Pictures are each
photographer’s language

National Geographic photo contest winner George Tapan’s “ Into The Green Zones”, for example,
expresses feelings and manipulates reality to create subjective mood and atmosphere.

2. DOCUMENTATION
-a picture is a proof of the value we give to our lives. It can capture our favorite memory or
document our traditions. It helps us capture special moments that if not documented on time
could be lost forever.

3. COMMUNICATION
-a picture is said to be worth a thousand words. It can speak to, or elicit an emotion, from its
viewers. Like sounds, words, and symbols, we can communicate what we think and feel through
a picture. Today, digital photography’s higher image resolutions help photographers to
communicate the message or meaning in their pictures.

a. Advertising Photography (food)


-If a culinary magazine or restaurant wants food to look delicious and fun to eat, a food
photographer is what it needs.

b. Fashion Photography
-a fashion photographer takes photographs of models aimed at showcasing clothes or other
types of accessories. The typical duties of a fashion photographer can include actually taking
pictures, overseeing a photoshoot, editing and selecting pictures, and then promoting and
marketing the work to a print or broadcasting agency.

c. Travel Photography
-Traveling photography is an exciting way to live life. By traveling, the photographer brings back a
collection of images showing places, people, and cultures he or she could not hope to see
otherwise.

d. Photojournalism
-A photographer, of course, shows us the present moment. But the present is always slipping
into the past, and what exist today may well not exist tomorrow. This basic realization inspires
photographers to use their photography skills to capture images for newspapers, magazines, and
television networks.
