The definition of fine art is "a visual art considered to have been created primarily for aesthetic purposes and judged for its beauty and meaningfulness, specifically, painting, sculpture, drawing, watercolor, graphics, and architecture." However, professor and photographer Ariel Wilson provides this definition for fine art photography, “Fine art photography is the intentional use of photography as your artistic medium of choice, used to further your conceptual idea.”
This definition separates fine art photography from those that casually take photos using a camera. Fine art photography is intentional composition that relays a message and creates meaning and emotion through an image.
Take this reflection photography image of aspen trees in Colorado as another example. The meaning of reflection, the idea it portrays for mental reflection and the meaning that can carry. Paired with the visually appealing lines and symmetry, this is a beautiful nature photography image for sale that classifies as fine art.
The creation of fine art photography starts with the composition that uses color, light, foreground, leading lines, and animate or inanimate objects as the subject. The process continues as the image comes to life through editing and can be complemented with framing and placing the image in a space to transform the look and feel.
Finding the perfect image for your space creates a look and feel that is inviting and plays with the emotion and mood desired in the space. Contact Kane directly for help in finding the perfect image for your space!
