People take photographs to preserve memories of events or places where they've been. But sometimes, we want to shoot something that will stir feelings regardless of memories


People take photographs to preserve memories of events or places where they've been. But sometimes, we want to shoot something that will stir feelings regardless of memories, and shoot a picture that will hang on the wall as if opening a window to another world – a realm we have never visited before... a window to the world of art. 
Photographs may not make you the next Michelangelo, but it is available to everyone. Students at AIS have been practicing this art during their Photography classes. They have learned how to use professional cameras and how to make captivating compositions from everyday materials. They have visited the world of historical photography and learned to replicate techniques used by famous photographers. 

 

photography as art


We may not yet become professionals, but we are on the right track. Some photographers try so hard to achieve absolute perfection that they neglect ordinary successes. And thus, they impoverish both themselves and us. Others, on the contrary, see each of their pictures only in a pink filter, depriving themselves of the luxury of critical evaluation. 
We, at Ashgabat International School, value positive critique and know how to learn from it. After all, perfection is not the final destination... it is the journey to get there that matters.
