5 Amazing “Creative photography”




In everyday terms, “creative photography” is not a new phrase; many photographs are inherently creative, after all. But using this phrase to define a genre of photography is a relatively recent thing, and that’s what I’m talking about here. So what is the genre of “creative photography”? Actually, there isn’t an official definition, and what constitutes creative photography is highly debatable among photographers. I’ve seen very loose definitions where the term is used to describe any photo that captures a scene in a way a person wouldn’t normally see it, such as photographing a plant from its underside, or in the case of macro photography which captures incredible detail our eyes rarely see.

Other photographers take a much stricter view, defining creative photography as images that contain a surreal or impossible element, such as a person floating (levitation photography) or soft, smooth, dream-like water (like in the case of long-exposure photography). “I think that emotional content is an image’s most important element, regardless of the photographic technique. Much of the work I see these days lacks the emotional impact to draw a reaction from viewers, or remain in their hearts.” – Anne Geddes

“It’s about reacting to what you see, hopefully without preconception. You can find pictures anywhere. It’s simply a matter of noticing things and organizing them. You just have to care about what’s around you and have a concern with humanity and the human comedy.” – Elliott Erwitt
