Ferst Graphic Design
While a great deal of photography takes place purely for fun, there is a decidedly commercial aspect to photography as well. We have all heard the old phrase that "a picture is worth a thousand words" and nowhere is this saying more true than in the world of marketing and advertising. Companies and their ad agencies spend countless hours and dollars looking for images that sell their products, and the world of commercial advertising is alive and thriving.
Street photography has become very popular recently, and it’s a subject many photographers are experimenting with. Street photography is simply documenting life around you in towns and cities, and illustrating the people and places seen every day. Candid photography in public places has been popular for decades, and many photographers have become famous for this style. Changing social trends and new technology has led to this documentary style being called street photography. Successful street photography is all about capturing the culture and heart of a place. It’s possible to do this without photographing people, and a series of shots of street signs, and local food and transport can illustrate a city.
