“You don’t take a photograph, you make it.” -Ansel Adams. In photography there is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality. Trends in photography change so fast, that you need to be constantly in the loop of people’s interests and demands in order to adapt your services to their taste and preference.
Here are the current trends in photography and how you can use them to surpass your competitors.
Natural Elements For Aesthetic Pictures
With a rise in environmental activism, nature is set to have a greater presence in photography in 2020. “Going green” in photography can mean anything from heading outside for environmental photography to featuring natural elements in product photography. This trend instills harmony and tranquillity in scenes while adding soft background elements.
Vibrant Colors To Please The Eye
Strong, bright colors are what we expect to see in the future. We believe this is to grab attention from the thousands of images that are taken and shared daily. The stronger the color, the louder it shouts. And it needs to be attractive if it is supposed to be noticed. This is a little conflicting, as photographers, aim for natural scenes. Luckily, graffiti, wall paintings, and other outdoor designs are also becoming trendy and louder to stand out.
Drones Activity For Unexplored Views
Drones are an addition to the line of photography equipment that has created new opportunities, quite literally, in the visual content space. Still in the nascent stages, camera drones have the power to reach inaccessible places that seemed unexplorable only a few years ago. It has given a new twist to the photography angles and has opened a new horizon to be explored for photography and videography.
Vertical And Portrait Is The Way
Half of digital traffic across all social media channels are viewed via a mobile device, usually a mobile phone. To get the largest real estate on one of the largest platforms, Instagram, you should be posting a portrait ratio of 4:5, this means whipping your camera round to the vertical position to get the optimum framing on your shot. Whatever your style of photography is, just try rotating your camera round by 90 degrees.
360 photography refers to videos and photos that cover a 360-degree spectrum, so they pull you into a scene and allow you to see it from every angle. 360 photography is believed to have become even more popular this year. Initially, it was the favourite technique of product photographers, trying to give the buyers an overall idea about the product advertised. Later, it attracted real estate and landscape photographers, giving them a huge potential of presenting a common scene in an interesting manner. Reflecting the trend in virtual reality, it’s starting to gain momentum.
