What is Fine Art Photography and Where To Find It For Affordable Prices

Confused about Fine Art Photography?

Lest start by answering a less confusing question. What is photography? Photography is the Art, Science, and Practice of Creating Images by Recording Light.

Your camera is merely a mechanism to record the light around you. The camera is an extension of your eyes, with the ability to record the light into a memory card and a piece of paper, therefore, saving it forever.

One of the best ways to showcase your photos and show them to the world to is by starting a photography blog. What does that mean? A photography blog is a place to share your photos, your feelings, your ideas, and really anything you want.

Think of a blog as a timeline of your photography life. You will be able to look back on it and see how far you have come in your photography.

By starting a blog and posting frequently, you will start to rank well on Google and therefore help you with your photography business. Being at the top of page searches you are guaranteed to be in front of potential customers first.

If you are just a hobbyist, you can keep track of your photo albums and share those with your friends in a nice and organized way. It is also a great way to keep a timeline of your family and your pets.  I have been blogging for 7 years and to me, it is another creative outlet as well as a timeline and it helps me a lot with my photography business.

best photography coffee table books for inspiration

What are the best photography coffee table books for inspiration? Not a question people often ask, however they should.

I have a really nice collection of photography books. I keep some on my coffee table, when people come over they pick them up immediately and next thing you know, we strike up a conversation about photography and inspiration.

ansel adams

Looking at a photo on a screen is one thing, but looking at a photograph on paper is an entirely different story. It draws you into the story, making it a much more personal experience.

I often sit in my office and go through this books, especially when I need a creative boost. I find that it is so easy to sit in front of a computer and scroll through photos, but that gets me a bit frustrated. To sit in a quiet place and opens up a book to check out some amazing photos is an entirely different experience. It gets my creative juices flowing and that makes all the difference.elliott erwitt

By the time I get done going through images in a book, I can Harley wait to get my hands on my camera, hit the streets and start taking some photos. It works every time. These three should get you started with a very nice collection of some incredible photography books. Soon after you look through these, you are going to want to publish your own.  Do you have a photo book collection? What is your favorite photography book to look through?
