Genre Photography


Setiap kita membuka genre/jenis fotografi di internet. Kadangkala kategori fotonya terlalu dipaksakan sebagai genre. Padahal sebenarnya masuk rana teknis maupun cara pengambilan. Kesalahan ini sering dicopy paste sehingga terjadi kesalahan yg dibenarkan. misalnya “candid photography, advertising photography, editorial photography, head shot photography, high dinamis range photography, panning photography. Tentu saja ini bukan genre. Genre photography yang disepakati dan memiliki batasan serta ruang lingkup,  meliputi:


Fashion photography 
Model photography
Aerial photography
Undewater photography
Landscape photography: urban landscape & cityscape
Folk photography
Still life photography: food photo dan product
Toys photography: diecast & action figure
Street photography
Human interest photography
Photo Journalism 
Documentary photography
Maternity photography
Kid photography
Birth photography
Wedding photography
Prewedding photography
Postwedding photography
Fine art photography
Astrophotography
X-ray photography 
Forensik photo
Infra Red photography
Stage photography
Wildlife photography
Pet photography
Abstract photography
Nude photography 
Marco photography
Micro photography
Architecture photography
Travel photography: sub kategori journey & adventure
Miksang photography
Pinhole photography

Sedangkan miksang photography, saya belum menemukan batasan, ruang lingkup, spesifikasi secara definitif tentang miksang. Umumnya miksang masuk dalam rana kontempalatif, pemikiran dengan gagasan/ide berlanjut proses, tapi implementasinya lebih cenderung pada art photo maupun abstrak photography. Miksang menguatkan objek pemotretan “apa adanya”, tidak merubah sifat dasar naturalis dengan konsep art of seeing yang menekankan good eyes. Itu lah kesulitan kita menjadikan sebagai genre.  Kadang yang memotret penuh pemikiran, tapi ketika jadi sebuah karya, orang mempersepsikannya biasa saja.
