Fine Art Photography

Art photography is an activity that can become a steady career for some and many fine art photo galleries are in the habit of selling photo art for a great profit to the artist. Photo art can be a very powerful way to create a message for an audience and getting your art in a photo gallery can be a very big accomplishment for any artist especially if it is one of the many fine art photo galleries strewn across the US. This type of art can also be based on almost anything and allows the artist to convey a message of the world in a different way that can appeal to audiences, here at you'll get an insight to this art. The art of photography is in fact an expression of the artists own style and how the artist sees the environment around them. This contributes to the vast range of different styles that you can view with photography and the range of subjects as well.

When it comes to art photography many may think that this is the same as photojournalism but this is not true. Photo journalism is a totally different thing that involves providing visual accounts of news story and is much more commercial in nature than fine art photography. The main focus of a photojournalist in many instances is to take a picture that is appealing in order to sell a product or service to a consumer but with fine art photography the purpose of the photography is whatever purpose the artist has laid out for it. This type of art is also something that an artist can do in their spare time regardless of if they are getting paid for it or not and it will still be enjoyable to them. A photojournalist's main priority is to get paid for the work they do.

The history of this type of art is widely considered controversial as before the 1950's it was unacceptable to put a photo in a gallery. This was considered vulgar to "real art" and also a bit pretentious but after the mid 1950's this form of art started to become acceptable to many as fine art photography but it was also still frowned upon by many as well. Prints during the times before the 50's were simply put on blockboard and plywood or even given white borders and then put on display boards. In this way all prints were shown to an audience without any glass covering them what so ever. Since these days there has been a very noticeable increase in putting glass to these prints and also enlarging them but in today's times it seems that artists are reverting back to art photography that is shown on boards with no glass obscuring them.
