Realism and metaphysics Realism
The intention of the photographer is to convey reality, to make it more concentrated, affecting the viewer.
The factor of uniqueness for the main contingent of viewers. For example, photos of remote places of the Earth, tribes, different cultures, etc.
Realism is more characteristic for color photography, because color carries more information and is closer to human vision.
Reality from a different angle. The intention to show often everyday things from a new side, to create an illusion, to give a person / object character, feelings. Display hidden from everyday look.
Characteristic associativity, metaphor.
More in BW, because without color the relationship between objects is more pronounced and it is easier for us to think associatively.
Dialogue and Scene Dialogue
Direct contact with the viewer. The viewer is involved in the dialogue and pay attention to it. What questions may sound in this communication, what story is being told, what can we read in our eyes, do we feel contact, do we empathize? On this depends the depth and interest of photography.
The viewer is indifferent to what is happening and is a ghostly observer. The scene can be characterized by action: it either occurs in the frame, or expressed by the movement of the viewer's gaze in the image. Working with the perspective, you can show with whose eyes the viewer looks, create a sense of overlook or, on the contrary, a winning point for an overview of what is happening (as the best seats in the theater).
Portrait and self portrait Portrait The story of the photographer about the person he is shooting. For the author, it is important to convey the character, emphasize the main features, show the life of the person being portrayed, his experiences, etc.
Creating an image based on your preferences, tastes; broadcast your own thoughts, experiences through the person / object in the frame.
