HOW TO TAKE GREAT PICTURES

 

 

Great photos- photos better than original image and usually regarded as beautiful by viewers.

Fine Art Photography is a branch of visual art.

During the 20th century, both fine art photography and documentary photography became accepted by the art world and the gallery system.

Value of the photos is due to its rarity and affection by people.

Rarity can be due to capture of a moment which will not happen again or  vanishing object images  (documentary).

Artists  through  their creativity  creat a product. When other people conceive it through the 5 senses and the product can arouse an aesthetic emotion or sentiment, joyful feeling or empathy   from the spirit and the viewer can  understand the underlying meaning of the product which carries the aesthetic emotion and thought of the artist, then the product is an art.

Fine art photos carry story, color, light shadow and composition  which can provoke viewers’ aesthetic emotion &  joy.
