Discussion: Is photography Art?

Wednesday, December 26th, 2007

“We hear over and over the question as to whether photography can be considered as its own form of Art. And we see numerous treatises on yes it is and no it isn’t. The main objection seems to be that it is primarily a mechanical process that handles most of the work—that the photographer has nothing further to do with it, other than some manipulation in the printing of the picture, and by most photographers is the labs that printed the pictures.”

The question that remains is whether or not the photographers themselves are true artists. Another theory is that artists must contribute their personal spirit into their creations. Could it be possible that a photographer using a mechanical device, that creates the image, could impose their personal spirit into the finished photograph?

Understanding Black & White

Thursday, December 20th, 2007

I’m trying to understand about B&W and sepia, and when and how to use it.
Being very color orientated, I find it hard to get a handle on it. Sometimes I’ve managed to get it right, but I don’t know what I did. It’s all hit and miss with me.

Here’s one that seemed to work really well for me. I showed it on Flickr and got good comments…

What elements make up a good B&W/sepia photo? How do you know whether it’s best to use greyscale or sepia?

How to Turn a Vacation to a Lifetime Memory

Wednesday, December 19th, 2007

Tip 1: Don’t be short of memory capacity
A portable photo storage & viewer with 20 or more GB is a worthwhile addition. If you take a lot of high-res/RAW pictures even an 8GB card won’t be enough!
