The Picture Underneath… I guess you Shot n’ Rollers out there is damn curious about what the heck is this all about. Literally, this chapter simply means The Picture Underneath your Subjects, or should I say, “the picture behind the picture”.

Consisting of 3 different sections, Chapter 5: The Picture Underneath is all about Art, Abstract and Still Life Photography. The top 3 genre where Shot n’ Roll is most interested.

Creative thinking and Artistic vision. The 2 major keys to unlock the gates of Art. If you have these keys, then you’re insane! Send those keys here coz I definitely need one! Hehehe!

Since this chapter is divided into 3 separate categories, I now bring you to the 1st one. Let’s cut the chit-chat crap and get serious! \m/

What is Art? – Wiki says…
Art is the process or product of deliberately arranging elements in a way to affect the senses or emotions.
It encompasses a diverse range of human activities, creations, and modes of expression, including music, literature, film, photography, sculpture, and paintings.

Definition problems:
Art Photography? Wiki says
There are no universally-accepted definitions of the related terms “art photography,” “artistic photography,” and “fine art photography,” as exemplified by definitions found in reference books, in scholarly articles, and on the Web.

Since there’s no universally-accepted definitions, I’ll just use the two definitions that can be found in reference books.
Art photography“: “photography that is done as a fine art — that is, done to express the artist’s perceptions and emotions and to share them with others.
Fine art photography“: “the production of images to fulfill the creative vision of a photographer. … Synonymous with art photography.

So here it is ladies and gents, I now give you my 8 shots of Art Section (including the 1 above). Check this out! \m/

Abstract Section


According to the web, there is no standard, universally accepted definition of Abstract Photography. However, to put the limits regarding this topic, here’s the 2 statements that we may use to define this section.

* Abstract photos does not represent the subject in a literal way.
* Communicates primarily through form, color, and curves rather than image detail.

In addition, Abstract Photography communicates to the viewer primarily through the viewer’s emotion and interpretation towards the subject. It is important to notice that the definition did not say that the subject matter had to be unrecognizable. It is true that, in some abstract images, the viewer can not tell what has been photographed. However, that is just one type of abstract image.

Still Life Section

Still Life Photography is the depiction of inanimate subject matter, most typically a small grouping of objects. It gives the photographer more leeway in the arrangement of design elements within a composition.

Still life photography is a demanding art, one in which the photographers are expected to be able to form their work with a refined sense of lighting, coupled with compositional skills. The still life photographer makes pictures rather than takes them. Knowing where to look for propping and surfaces also is a required skill.
