Today I took a few minutes and decided to visit some older images. My original compositions, once shared were met with some mixed reactions. One noted comment was because of the darker edits it was felt that the photo did not represent the church in a positive light. Respectfully, I completely understood the comment and realized that some people are deeply rooted in religion, and they have a passion for the beliefs of the church. In short they love their church and that is respected and admired.
My personal opinion is simply like so much in life, photography is very subjective. Often times i visualize an image before I even frame it, and although one persons view may be different from mine, I always appreciate hearing comments from viewers of my compositions. Feedback is a good thing.
We all have opinions. I can state that I have looked at the works of some pretty famous photographers and on more that one occasion, I have thought to myself, " I just don't get it". Why is this imagery so regarded? Why is this photographer so famous, meanwhile I sit here, have the ability, but my phone does not ring off the hook. This is when I realize, Photographer is subjective. Years ago I stopped worrying about the whys and just did me. I have won several competitions, my work has been published, from time to time I work with clients and more importantly, I still get to enjoy the subtle art of composition. My point of disclosure here simply to state, being able to create is what is satisfying. Some people will love what you do, others will not.
Move forward and simply be who you are.
Back to point here, I did in fact edit some images in the fine art format and added the to the Fine Art Gallery. My intent here is to simply start offering home, office, decor for anyone who has an interest in Fine Art. Remember the phrase, "if you build it, they will come".
Please share your feedback if you made it this far.
St Mary's Roman Catholic Church CFAMy intent here was to capture the beauty of the church and the original edit received some mixed reviews. What I have done here is edited the historical church in a fine art format to simply isolate the beauty of the structure.
Of coarse you cant have a fine art image with out the Black and White version.
St Mary's RC church BWFAMy intent here was to capture the beauty of the church and the original edit received some mixed reviews. What I have done here is edited the historical church in a fine art Black an White format to simply isolate the beauty of the structure.
