Fine Art Flower Photography.
What exactly is Fine Art Photography?
Many people have many different ideas as to what Fine Art Photography should be, and some even believe it is a load of garbage – photography is just photography any one can do it.
Just as there are many different opinions on Photography in general and the use of Photoshop and the way people are processing their images.
Fine Art Photography is hard to define.
Perhaps the term Artistic Expression would help to clarify images that are classified as Fine Art.
There are some people who view the use of tools and photo shop as cheating when it comes to Photography as well.
The Photographer has available his tools of the trade – lenses, filters etc. These tools help him to create a better image than some one who takes snap shots.
The Photographer also avails himself of other digital tools such as Photo shop to enhance his images even further. Very much like the old days in the dark room where every attempt was made to improve or change an image for the better.
There are many Photographers who don’t use these tools and perhaps prefer a more natural looking image, captured in a professional way.
Neither way is right or wrong but simply different.
Photography is a huge minefield of controversy – where people relentlessly judge others work, and criticize those who have had the good fortune of making a lot of money from their work.
Is Photography an art form – Yes it is.
It takes more than technical knowledge to produce a great image.
It takes a good strong artistic sense and forethought along with the right tools, to create that Fine Art Image.
