“A picture is a secret about a secret, the more it tells you the less you know.” ― Diane Arbus
When a pictures becomes more fullfilled with little details, more attention about how the subject is placed… the secret about the secret will always captive you: it may even drives you nuts! Have you ever wondered how real pro photographer could do a such amazing job, how they could do amazing shots and wanted to figure out how it was done? I always wanted to ask myself: What is fine art photography? Is there that much of difference between fashion and portraiture? Let’s see that!
Fine art photography
When I typed on google search: ” Fine art photography “, I found an interesting definition in wikipedia:
Fine art photography is photography created in accordance with the vision of the artist as photographer. Fine art photography stands in contrast to representational photography, such as photojournalism, which provides a documentary visual account of specific subjects and events, literally re-presenting objective reality rather than the subjective intent of the photographer; and commercial photography, the primary focus of which is to advertise products or services.
In other words, fine art is defined as a photography coming from your own ideas and creativity. It is your vision, not the others!!
