Fine Art Photography


I've had several people comment that my photos are more Fine Art Photos than regular photographs. Could someone define for me what is considere Fine Art Photography? Thanks for any clarification. Kathy in NH

  From what I understand of it, Fine Art means that it would look wonderful enlarged, framed and hanging on a wall. Hope this helps.

  Thanks Margie. But that is still confusing, it seems that would apply to regular photography as well. Kathy in NH

  I did a quick search for the definition of fine art. Here is what I found:
Art produced or intended primarily for beauty rather than utility.
Most of what I shoot I wouldn't consider fine art. I tend to see my style being used for stock, thus utility. Much fine art that you see tends to be landscapes, flowers and modern and abstract.
