Brilliant Works of Conceptual Photography : 60 Creative Examples

Concept photos differ from other types of photography simply because they usually carry a specific message or theme. Typically, they are shot in the studio to offer more creativity and solutions to photographers. This does however; increase the planning as it offers ideas for more props, lighting sets, and different lenses. Concept photography is one of the few types that allows for humor, different connotations, politically skewed messages, social awareness issues, and of course sarcasm.

Here are some really beautiful examples of conceptual photography. I hope you will find them inspiring.

All photos are linked and lead to the sources from which they were taken. Please feel free to click on each photo to learn more about the talented photographer behind it.

Bokeh Photography : 35 Sparkling Bokeh Photos

In photography, bokeh is the blur, or the aesthetic quality of the blur, in out-of-focus areas of an image, or "the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light." Differences in lens aberrations and aperture shape cause some lens designs to blur the image in a way that is pleasing to the eye, while others produce blurring that is unpleasant or distracting—"good" and "bad" bokeh, respectively. Bokeh occurs for parts of the scene that lie outside the depth of field. Photographers sometimes deliberately use a shallow focus technique to create images with prominent out-of-focus regions.

Bokeh is often most visible around small background highlights, such as specular reflections and light sources, which is why it is often associated with such areas. However, bokeh is not limited to highlights, as blur occurs in all out-of-focus regions of the image - wiki.

31 Best Creative Photographer Portfolio Websites

A portfolio is a showcase for your talent and experience - whatever your creative or media field.

Creating a portfolio of your work is one of the most important things you can accomplish as a photographer. Unfortunately, relatively few photographers create portfolios because they find the process daunting or think their work is not good enough to be included in a portfolio. Others squirm at the idea they will have to review thousands of photographs taken over many years. Yet others do not know how to select photographs for a portfolio. Finally, there are those who believe that a portfolio cannot be created by themselves, that such an endeavor has to be conducted under the control of a museum or a gallery or needs to take place in the context of a retrospective of the artist’s work.
