Visual studies and art appreciation (5 classes)
In this chapter – we will learn about what visual study means, why it is useful for photographers, how visual study and visual interpretation started from painting and the process used in photography review.

Even photography is stills and is not capable to do movement, but photography always left effective impression in our mind. Photo Voice is an ideological activity of presentation.

History of Photography
Photography has come a long way in its relatively short history. In almost 200 years, the camera developed from a plain box that took blurry photos to the high- tech mini computers found in today's DSLRs and smartphones. The story of photography is fascinating and it's possible to go into great detail. However, let's take a brief look at the highlights and major developments of this scientific art form. There is no question about that Photography Changed the Social Attitude Towards Art. Photography is not just about capturing a person, subject or situation as Susan Sontag stated that “Photography is more than just clicking even It is also about environment of shoot.” Through this chapter, we will see hard – information about historical development in photography.

Studying still life photography is part of curriculum used for the depiction of non-living subjects, typically a small group of objects to learn shapes, textures, reflections and characters of the objects in light and shadows. It is the application of photography to artistic style.
Portrait photography is to photograph a person or group of people to captures the personality of the subject and emotions by using effective lighting, backdrops, and poses. A portrait picture might be artistic, or it might be for special purpose. Frequently, portraits are commissioned for special occasions, such as weddings, passport or school events. Portraits can serve many purposes, from usage on a personal Web site to display.
How to read Photography
Photography critics and art historians have developed their own language for critiquing and talking about photographs. Much of this is based on in-depth theory and can be daunting to even experienced photographers. But in the end, all of these ideas are based on everyday responses we all have to art, or in this case, photography. We like or dislike photos, we interpret the story behind the scene, and we feel certain emotions. All of this goes beyond just the composition.
We will guide you how a camera works and how to make it work for your visually expressive way to use the camera to its best potential to get the best of Photography. The most important aspect is controlling the exposure to convey the moods in the artistically decided exposure.
