Photography involves using a camera to create images that are intended to be appreciated primarily for their aesthetic or artistic qualities. Just like traditional visual arts such as painting, sculpture, and drawing, photography is widely recognized as a legitimate form of artistic expression.

In photography as art, the photographer goes beyond capturing a mere representation of reality. Instead, they use the camera as a tool to convey emotions, ideas, stories, and concepts. The artistic elements of photography include composition, lighting, color, contrast, texture, and perspective. Photographers make deliberate choices in framing, focus, and timing to create visually compelling images that evoke feelings or provoke thoughts.

Some photographers focus on capturing the beauty of the natural world, while others explore the complexities of human emotions or societal issues. Throughout the history of art, photography has evolved and integrated with various artistic movements, such as surrealism, modernism, and contemporary art.
