Since the 1970s artists using photography like Cindy Sherman and latterly Thomas Ruff and Thomas Demand have been described as conceptual. Although their work does not generally resemble the lo-fi aesthetic of 1960s conceptual art they may use certain methods in common such as documenting performance (Sherman), typological or serial imagery (Ruff) or the restaging of events (Demand). In fact the indebtedness to these and other approaches from Conceptual Art is so widespread in contemporary Fine -art Photography that almost any work might be described as conceptual. The term has perhaps been used most specifically in a negative sense to distinguish some contemporary art photography from documentary photography or Photojournalism. This distinction has been made in the coverage of the Deutsche Horse Photography Prize. Conceptual photography is often used interchangeably with Fine-Art Photography, and there has been some dispute about whether there is a difference between the two. However, the central school of thought is that conceptual photography is a type of fine-art photography. Fine art Photography is inclusive of conceptual photography. While all conceptual photography is fine art, not all fine art is conceptual. (Wikipedia)
Cloudy or rain day was perfect for some fine art or conceptual photography, Have you guys ever try it?
the layers of the clouds or even flat white sky does not bad for some session it's depends on your theme and idea how to..
We were shooting at the train station... I know it not good and might be dangerous for model and yourself and the accident stores happened already somewhere... so I don't suggest you to and after those sessions I have done recently I didn't do it again and better to keep it safe and feel comfortable to everyone ( the risk no need ).
The theme was kinda Japanese style of fine art which is mystery but meaningful at the same time, we use candle news paper umbrella and candle for props.
The shoot was starting from 5PM. till twilight time to see color sky background and the lights and candle get stronger.
Somehow I like this last photo of the mystery secret leading lines in the image including stories in the background.
Here is my gear I suggests:
I hope you guys like this session images.
Have a good one and see you tomorrow.
