Pushing The Limits of Artistic Photography

Here is my latest podcast episode. The topic I cover this time around is one I am hoping to hear feedback on. Today in the digital age of photography the relative ease of processing images that are more fine art but look very real is something attainable by the masses and is done on a larger scale than ever before with more and more serious photographers out there everyday.

As I mention in the podcast this is a topic that can easily be discussed or debated for many hours. The opinions out there will differ as to what we each feel is okay even within the fine art realm. One photographer may believe you need to uphold certain methods and processes in order to communicate the reality of the scene while another photographer might be more concerned about pushing the limits of processing to attain their final photographic interpretation which may involve extensive processing or manipulation.

Photography for art purposes is much different in my eyes than photography for documentary or editorial purposes and with that I enjoy that photographers are constantly looking to change and broaden their horizons in the processing space. Whether I like the work or agree with the methods is not for me to decide. It's art and as long as you enjoy it and it provides you with satisfaction producing the work and seeing the final product, that is what is important. Follow your passion.
