Real Moments With Authenticity

The good old ‘posing’ kind of images are slowly fading in its popularity. People are looking for authentic photographs be is a family photo album or wedding or any event as such.

Social Angle

Social documentary photography or concerned photography is the recording of how the world looks like with a strong focus on the social and environmental issues. The aim of this genre is to draw people’s attention on the ongoing issues. Right from the 19th Century this genre has gained popularity. The first to set foot in this genre was Henry Mayhew who published a book with compilation of photographs of London Labour and London Poor. Today, with the wide usage of Social Media and people resorting to blogs, topics like climate change, animal abuse and social issues at all levels are brought to the light of the world. This genre was trending in year 2016 and will continue to do so in year 2017 as well.

Black And White

Never the mainstream preference and restricted for dramatisation in photographs, year 2017 is going to see a lot of monochromes. Popularly referred as ‘Mainstream Monochrome’, this genre will be widely used across by all photographers and we expect even the end users (clients) requesting for monochromes for their use.

Social Media Photographs

The power of Social Media is growing immensely. Photographers would like to get discovered among the ocean of imageries that are available on such platforms. Therefore they resort to photographs or a set of photographs that would get the social media pull. Example: As part of the power of perspective, point of view photographs are trending the most. Showcasing the world one’s perspective is drawing a lot of attention and with virtual reality in place already, this is going to hit another level.
