Photography as an expression has been one of the most useful perspectives in the world of art. The perspective behind photography has made tremendous changes in our society.

Today, we have the power and the ability to look at photos and have different variations of meaning. We attach meaning to a photograph in order to stay connected with the feeling it gives us. This paper summarizes the framework behind the different styles of photography and how they are all connected. It also explains the meaning behind the style of photography. In this framework, we will explore different views of photography and how they represent a different contribution to photography and how they have made a difference. This paper starts by analyzing differences in creativity and photography, and observations and perspective, which are not seen frequently. Being a photographer also makes you creative, and this will explain the differences and process.
