Fine art photography is a highly creative and niche genre.
The works produced are generally displayed as wall art and are entirely in contrast to representational photography, such as photojournalism.
How do we define fine art photography?
Fine art photography combines photography with conceptual ideas. The photographer’s view and perception of the world are expressed through their photography.
Fine art photos follow all or some of the seven art and design principles. These principles are balance, rhythm, pattern, emphasis, contrast, unity, and movement. By applying these to a photo, art photographers create images grounded in the foundations of art theory.
A fine art photograph is never a literal representation of a scene or subject—it needs to reveal that the artist created it with a clear vision behind it.
