Photography of people and things may always remain significant, but the new deal is to preserve places and landscape and capture them through Polaroid for posterity. A good amount of effort is going into then-and-now photography, as the war seems to be claiming lives and lands.

A lot of photography has centered around accidentally on purpose candidness – which means that candid was orchestrated. The effort now, though, is about capturing the candid in its raw and candid form. Capture in the raw captures in the natural, capture to preserve!

Food remains the star this coming year! Instead of Instagram-like regular shots, food closeups are a huge thing this year. Take them aesthetically – and with cultural relevance. A plate of Turkish Delight with a delightful souvenir from Turkey placed alongside casually will be a great tribute.

  • Drone photos
