Roughly speaking, photography is crafting images with light
Roughly speaking, photography is crafting images with light. The art of arranging the image elements through perspective, camera placement and lens selection and allowing light — both natural and artificial — to direct the viewer’s eye to the important aspects of the subject provides both the challenge as well as the satisfaction derived from crafting a superior photographic image.
At the essence of the image is the statement it makes
At the essence of the image is the statement it makes or the story it tells. The true joy of photography lies in its ability to capture a moment in time, to freeze that moment forever. Whether it is a spectacular sunset on the Grand Tetons, a portrait of your daughter or son on the day of their birth, or a close-up of your wedding rings, when the image is transferred to paper from a negative or slide you have a keepsake that will kindle fond memories deep inside you each time you view it. This is the magic of photography.
Fine Art Images
For years, indeed decades, it was debated whether or not photography was art. Early pioneering photographers probably wondered what the disagreement was all about. They had to use an artistic eye to visualize their image and serious physical and emotional effort to have the camera create the image as they envisioned it. Although the debate lingers, photographers like Ansel Adams and Edward Weston blurred the line between art and photography making it possible for me to consider offering my work as fine art. I attempt to capture a particular moment in time that probably will not occur again or is magnificent in its beauty, its content, or its meaning and deliver it to those who wish to view it.
