Realism in art is the idea of representing subject matter truthfully without any artificial elements, exotic or supernatural elements. Shadows in art and in general is a space where light from a light source is blocked by an object. This light source that has been blocked by the object projects a dark two-dimensional shape of the object directly behind where the light source is coming from. Both my works and the works of Ileana Hunter combine Minimalism and Realism to create the theme of Realistic Minimalism. To be able to perfectly explain Realistic Minimalism is simple: for example, drawing a hand by not drawing a hand but by drawing the shadows the hand casts in its contours and the elements around it.
Pictorialism was a photography approach emphasizing the beauty of subject matter as beautifully rendered as any painter 's canvas and as skillfully constructed as any graphic artist 's composition rather than documenting of reality. Photographers explore the expressionistic potential of photography by injected own sensibility into the perception of image. In an effort to establish this new, technical medium as a fine art form, In composing Pictorialist photography by using “painterly” techniques such as soft focus, staged or stylized scenes, or the manipulation of negatives or prints. In the second half of the 19th century Pictorialism was the dominant tendency in photography. Introduction of Alfred Stieglitz Alfred Stieglitz was the impresario of art photography, who leading the movement of Pictoralism, not only introducing model art to America, but also made photography as an art form.
Outdoors locations, unprofessional actors, and natural lighting are applied to achieve a further level of reality. Cinematic realism is based on transparent editing that stimulates the intellectual skills of the spectator never imposing the filmmaker’s ideas. Although cinematic realism was, according to Bazin, fully achieved in neorealism we can still identify several recent films that achieve cinematic realism such as Linklater's "Boyhood" (2015) that has been described a model of cinematic realism.

so that he looks weak and distraught. After analyzing all of these effects, it becomes apparent how important the actions of the camera truly are. This movie would have been completely different if the camera had been looking at the actors from only one position. Camera movement and angles are what captivate the audience to keep their attention throughout the entirety of the whole film. Sometimes a simple camera movement can make all the difference in the
Film takes photography to another level. Film, or the cinema “is objectivity in time.” For the first time with film “the image of things is likewise the image of their duration, change mummified as it were”. Bazin argues "only the impassive lens, stripping its object of all those ways of seeing it, those piled- up preconceptions, that spiritual dust and grime with which my eyes have covered it, are able to present it in all its virginal purity to my attention and consequently to my love. By the power of photography, the natural image of a world that we neither know nor can know, nature at last does more than imitate art: she imitates the
Portraits are made of age, facial expression, and focus. Portraits are composed differently based on age because a photograph of a child is dynamic and filled with vibrancy, while a photograph of an old individual is flat and, mostly, black and white. Nevertheless, that does not mean that each age group is restrained to the previously described composition because facial expressions play an essential role. In my opinion, facial expressions are especially emphasised in a person’s eyes, since they are like the windows or doors to an individual’s soul, and facial geography since they depict a person’s raw naked emotional state. Having said that, eyes are a necessity in all subjects because most human beings look at other’s eyes, when they meet, which I have the tendency to do because I am fascinated and infatuated by eyes.
The basic concept is that the film image bears a transparent relationship to reality. The image of a window is evoked to explain the transparency involved. As spectators, in connecting to the real via photography, we are positioned prior to a window through which we are looked at the things themselves. According to Bazin, film image is to be ‘evaluated not according to what it adds to reality but what it reveals of it.’(63) Phenomenology of filmic representation will be developed in relation to image, sound, narrative, documentary, content and reception. The act of experiencing a film is to be constitutive of the very object of perception.

Realism and Naturalism In the same fashion, revolting against traditions and artistic values did not only concern literature. It spread to the visual arts as well. In this field, American Realism became the new direction for American visual arts at the turn of the 20th century. In fact, many artists after World War I adopted mainly numerous styles of Realism in addition to Naturalism in portraying urban and rural scenes in America. "The Ashcan School [for instance] was a movement within American Realism that came into prominence in New York City .
