The age-old debate. Many would say “anybody can use a camera”. In the age cell phone cameras everyone is a photographer right? Perhaps the true question is “can everyone see what an artist sees”?I am the farthest thing from a technician. I could shoot a thousand images in a day and find only one that says something to me, and most times it’s not technically correct. It may be, out of focus, blurred, over exposed.
I know photographers who know their camera’s inside and out. They boast about their images being “tack sharp”. But is that really capturing a special feeling or just getting the exposure and focus right?“ Mercado de flores”, San Miguel De Allende, Mexico, 2014I had a show in Mexico two years ago. I presented the gallery owner with a selection of photographs I was considering for the show. Mercado de flores was rejected. The explanation, "because it's out of focus". If it were a painting, would it have been rejected because it wasn’t photo-realistic? Photography becomes art when the camera becomes a brush and then used to paint what the photographer sees and feels.
Quote from Photographylife.com“The principal and underlying criteria that distinguishes fine art photography from other fields in photography is that fine art photography is not about digitally recording a subject. Fine art photography, is first and foremost about the artist. It is not about capturing what the camera sees; it is about capturing what the artist sees. The camera is used to make an art piece that reveals the vision of the artist and makes a statement of that vision rather than documenting the subject before the lens.”
