Styles 101: What is Whimsical Photography?
Clients often aren’t aware of the intricacies of photography, especially when it comes to the multitude of styles out there that some professional photographers offer. To help them better understand the types of photography that can be illustrated in their carefully created images, this series of posts provides explanations and examples of every photography style listed in Photographer Central.
Whimsical photography is a style of photography that elicits a dreamy feeling through the use of post-processing effects, colors, and additional sharpening or blurring. This type of photography often uses soft light and mellow tones to convey an almost childlike perspective on the scene in an image. Common additions that are included during the processing include bokeh and solar flares. These elements add a touch of surrealism.
Alternatively, some photographers consider whimsical photography as having to do more with the staging of the photo and the personality of the subjects. For instance, a client whose wedding theme includes superheroes or something reminiscent of their childhood will often incorporate that theme in their photos. In this case, it’s the content of the photo that creates the whimsical quality.
