Appreciating Fine Art Photographs
Fine Art photographs go beyond the normal recording capability of photography to reveal the inner beauty of a scene or object. Beyond a simply ‘nice’ chocolate-box type image, they have a deeper meaning, conveying a mood or atmosphere, stirring the emotions and conjuring up good memories. Look for visually appealing images. Consider the colours, light and shade, tone and texture. Examine the image’s composition, and how it relates to the subject. Does the image tell a simple story? Ultimately, look for images that bring pleasure to look at.
What gives a photograph it’s value?
The key ability of a Fine Art photographer is a ‘seeing eye’, able to notice and capture images of great beauty, where others would simply take a ‘snapshot’. The time invested in each edition often exceeds the time taken to paint in oils or watercolours, and each print should be signed by hand by the artist. An individually produced print such as those made by Richard Cobby has much greater value than one printed as a run of thousands by machine.
Collecting Fine Art photographs
PhotoArt Editions offer an enjoyable, exciting and affordable way to give a stylish focal point to interior design. They are also a worthwhile method of collecting fine art which can be valued, cherished and appreciated for generations to come. Images purchased can appreciate greatly as the photographer gains in reputation, with many photographs that were once inexpensive now worth thousands. Collections may be admired in the future and handed down as family heirlooms. As any expert will tell you, the way to begin collecting fine art is to start with what you love!
