The Natural Beauty in Fine Art Photography
Posted on 02 August 2012
Fine art, when captured in its prime, is stunning and beautiful. Fine art photography becomes a means to house this beauty in as each art piece is captured and locked inside the picture to preserve it for life. The photograph is then placed in galleries or museums so everyone can have a chance to see it. The photograph must bring out the true beauty of the picture in order to create the emotion and intense hold that the art has.
When photographing fine art it takes the right amount of professional studio lighting to create the picture the way the photographer sees it. The lighting may shine more on the left side then than the right, The angle may be a little more toward the right than the left; it doesn’t matter how it should be taken, what matters is how the photographer sees the fine art at its best.
Before taking pictures of fine art professionally, you can practice taking these pictures at home or in your office. Design a few floral arrangements and place a solid color back drop down. Place your professional studio lighting on one side of the floral arrangement and take pictures. You can move the lighting around until you have the perfect angle and then begin snapping your pictures. You can create new arrangements in order to get a different style and eye for fine art.
You can also find fine art to take pictures of in public. Places such as restaurants, hotel lobbies, and other sophisticated buildings will decorate with a style that is unique. Set up your portable lighting, take a few minutes and capture the beauty.
Eventually you can take your studio lighting, back drops, and cameral equipment out and take pictures of fine art every where. You would be amazed at the many places you can capture this type of picture. Fine art is truly in the beholder but who says you are the only one that can see the beauty in something?
