Portraits - like the ones in your grandparents or parents' albums. Classic images that stand the test of time. They're striking, gorgeous and a bit formal. These photos reflect reality, but they're infused with the shooter's artistic license.
Photojournalistic photography captures candid moments or spontaneous pictures of people, décor and action. Also known as documentary style, photojournalistic style is all about those special, in-between moments. The story is told through photos by focusing less on capturing the perfect technical photo but more on capturing the moments that contribute to the 'mood' of the overall mood of the session.
Lifestyle photography is a genre of photography that mainly aims to capture portraits of people in situations, real-life events or milestones in an artistic manner and the art of the everyday. The primary goal is to tell stories about people's lives or to inspire people in different times.
Think of this style as your own magazine photoshoot. This is the most technical of the photography styles. The focus is more on lighting and posing. More like being a Model for a day! The process is completely different from the photojournalistic style or lifestyle sessions because the photographers are more hands-on and the environment is more controlled. If you want your session to look straight out of a magazine, this style is for you.
Fine art photos are images that are created solely for their imaginative or aesthetic quality. It’s the opposite of documentary photography, which seeks to capture life, people, and significant events for memory and historical records.
Most portrait or documentary-style shoots require some creativity and forethought. However, with portraits, creative planning is focused on the customers ideas. I am trying to highlight your personality rather than develop my own ideas and art.
In fine art portraiture, it’s the reverse. The subject is the ART, not the MODEL.
