The Arts.jpg

The arts represent an outlet of expression. They are usually influenced by culture and in turn help to change culture. As such, the arts are a physical manifestation of the internal creative impulse. Major constituents of the arts include literature, including poetry, novels, short stories, and epics; performing arts such as music, dance, and theatre; culinary arts such as baking, chocolatiering, and winemaking; media arts like photography and cinematography; and visual arts, including drawing, painting, ceramics, and sculpting. Some art forms combine a visual element with performance (e.g. film) and the written word (e.g. comics).[1]

We can also say that art is present in every work. Even a homeowner decorating a house or a chef arranging food on a plate can be considered art. We can see that art is everywhere. Writing, reading, sleeping, even eating apply. Everything comes under art.

Concert photography involves taking photographs of "noisy" events such as rock concerts or political rallies, in which the sound of cameras shooting is not a problem.

Other events such as classical music concerts, dance shows or theatre, are similar in terms of lighting and composition, but the noise of the camera will not be tolerated there. (more...)
