Photography Is Not Just Technical Recording

KSP Season 15 Episode 1, which was held on October 26, 2022, took the title Photography Not Just Technically Recording. This material was presented by Yulius Widi Nugroho, S.Sn., M.Sc., who is one of the lecturers of the Visual Communication Study Program at ISTTS. This season's seminar was held onsite at the ISTTS Campus in the E-402 building.

He explained that, "Those who have cameras are not necessarily photographers". Photography can be divided into three types. The first is a commercial photo that focuses on money. Examples are product photos, coverage or documentation, stock photos, advertisements, and so on. The second is a photojournalist who focuses on reporting the news as it is. "Sometimes bad news is good news," he said. Examples are coverage or news, portraits, essays, and so on and the last is fine art in the form of artistic expression. Examples are experimental, portfolio, exhibition, the existence of a photographer, and so on.

"Cameras for photography are expensive, don't compare them with cellphones," he said. The reason is because the camera has complete features for photographers to tinker with. The auto feature on the camera helps photographers work. people can have the opportunity to improve their ability in photographing objects.

"Photography is a wide world," he said. "Photographers usually compete with each other for cameras, images or works, compete for locations just to socialize," he continued. Being a photographer is not just for taking pictures and having fun, but it is very complex, such as learning photography techniques, photo editing, socializing, and being active on social media. "Photography is one of the art media," said Mr. Yulius. Creating good photos has several skills that must be possessed, such as self-confidence, communication, attitude, writing, marketing, team work, social networks, problem solving, technology updates, and others. Some things that need to be considered by photographers are time, access, budget, targets, social conditions, culture, ethics, and so on.

During the presentation of the material, Mr. Yulius also received questions from the participants. He explained the material with examples or philosophies that were easy to understand and invited the participants to interact during the seminar. He also took the time to show his photographic work, both using a camera and cellphone. He also explained the story behind the shooting that took place along with the tricks he used to photograph an object. Then, the seminar was closed with a question and answer session and continued with filling in attendance via Google Form and a group photo session.
