“In photography there is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality.” – Alfred Stieglitz
Alfred Stieglitz was an engineer by profession who made it a point to give photography equal status in the world of art, which would be at par with that of sculptures or painting. To Alfred, Photography expressed as much as or may be even more than paintings. Thus, he took it upon himself to prove the expressive nature of photography.
Alfred Stieglitz was a photographer, who considered himself an artist just like the sculptors’ or painters of that era. In a time when art was about hand sculpted models or brilliant brush strokes on a canvas, photography was deemed as the much neglected child. Photographers and their work were seldom considered a part of the world of art. The vital contributions from Alfred became the stepping stones to making photography an accepted form of art.
Alfred Stieglitz would have been very happy and proud today to see photography as a mainstream profession. The number of people opting for photography as a permanent profession is surprising and intriguing at the same time. Firstly photography is not just about picking up a DSLR camera and capturing shots, it is about capturing the true essence of the moment in its true spirit without adding too much artificial touches. Thus, a fine line demarks the difference between a true talented photographer and a person who just simply takes pictures.
A talented photographer is capable of doing photography of the finest degree wherein each picture would speak volumes about the subject, the emotions and the surrounding. Photography may disguise or reveal the primary reflections of the subject, giving the viewer a wider berth to ponder on.
Lest, the world of contemporary photography engulfs, it would be wise to know about an extremely talented young photographer, Komal Ghazaali. She has an inborn flair for photography which is further enhanced to finesse by international and local workshops.
Komal is a photographer who primarily specializes in nature and product photography; the out of the box thinking comes in handy for creating spectacular photographs. Product photography requires creativity and ingenuity; ideas and concepts which would bring out the best in the subject, a task that is best suited for Komal Ghazaali.
Another extraordinary element added to her portfolio, is the contemporary style of photography for portraits. The contemporary style of photography brings with it a fresh thought to the picture; one that is different and deep. Komal works only by appointments for products and portraits, so potential clients will have to get in touch via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and book reservations.
“You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.” ― Ansel Adams
