How you can Take a Picture

A new Picture may be worth a Thousand Words

Photography may be a more effective and reasonably inexpensive alternative to drawing or piece of art, and thought and sensation adopts a painting than a photograph.

Photography is relatively simple in comparison to artwork, which is a much more complex task. With photography, the composition is already completely arranged, but with a painting, the aim is much more open up to interpretation by the artist. The artist has the ability to get much more emotion, understanding, and significance in an event and apply this fiery drive to his paintbrush when creating his own masterpiece.

When dealing with reality, I think a photograph may represent an actual physical recollection of a person or object, but a painting created from scratch adds the fact of perception to the equation. The truth is always open up to a different remark and interpretation.

Artists during the Realism period concentrated on the real world as they saw it, and chose to construct their pieces of work with normal, everyday activities, therefore rendering it all the more real. One painter during this time period was Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot. In his piece titled Ville d’Avray, he chooses to get a woman in a forest-like setting. The text message states Corot worked very quickly so that he or she could capture the “underlying rhythm of nature” to make his landscapes expose the magic moment of truth. In my model, his quick brushstrokes in light and dark beliefs are meant to create movement; you can pretty much see the wind blowing through the rustling woods, gently swaying the female’s long, flowing skirt. Together with his choice of colors, I can feel a slight chill from the breeze because of the haziness and dimly lit sky. In case this was a photograph, the would be less blurred, and I would see a woman, a couple of trees, and more defined colors. We wouldn’t feel anything from the photograph. I would just see objects. Along with this painting, however, I interpret it to cause me to feel a certain way (serene and lethargic), also it provokes me to think about as to why this woman is among the trees on such a blustery day. This piece of art allows me to reveal and speculate whether the artist had similar thoughts while creating such a wonderful composition.

Another thought-provoking artwork created during the Realistic look period is Gustave Courbet’s Burial at Ornans. Courbet was viewed as the leader of Realism in art, and he said: “to paint somewhat of country, one must know it. ” This may be the foundation of realism, because the musicians chose simple, everyday activities (such as Courbet decided on a burial in this particular painting), and made them into complex narratives. In Burial at Ornans, Courbet makes me feel mournful from the dark structure, as it, unfortunately, will remind me of a funeral service I recently attended. Whenever I read that Courbet demanded the subjects in his picture of numerous settings, I can only imagine what they had to think about to achieve such sorrowful dispositions. It truly is especially heart-wrenching when the viewer painstakingly examines each of the comprehensive faces, especially that of the altar boys. One innocent child is looking up towards an elder man, probably questioning “Why? inches This simple action may be symbolic of so many of us looking up towards Heaven and asking God “Why? inch when we lose someone you care about. This painting is a genuine example of realism, and it was probably mostly rejected because people of that time period wanted optimistic pieces of art; not work that made them pessimistically question real life events.

In conclusion, a photo is when the picture is a photograph, a sense of reality is achieved in that the colors, size, and details or the composition are real. There is a lot to be said about a photograph, but there is always something missing. The missing hyperlink is what inspires an artist to create a masterpiece with a paintbrush and a blank canvas. Countless hours are invested debating on the colors, the brushstroke, and the detail to be provided with to each subject. Then, emotion takes over and the artist desperately tries to convey his thoughts and feeling through a simple painting-a mundane task indeed! Finally, after the performer has committed everything to his masterpiece, only one thing is left to be done, and that hopes his work motivates and provokes thoughts to question the perception of reality in the viewers.
