What Makes Nature Photography Stand Out as Fine Art?

Fine art nature photography is often manipulated, from setting up a specific camera angle to adjusting the saturation of color during the editing process. Craft is important, whether the photographer is capturing the everyday setting sun or the extraordinary mountains of Yosemite. There are foundational elements of photography and design to understand, such as the use of texture, colors, shapes and lines, as well as knowing how light is altered depending on the weather and the time of day and year.

Always Carry Your Camera With You!

When you have a camera with you, you view & grasp everything around differently. Since you have your camera with you, you start thinking that you might as well capture it. This then leads you to perceive even everyday objects and scenes as something meaningful.

You don’t look at the streets you walk daily in the same way as you used to. You never see the same critters, flowers, and trees the way you used to look at them previously. Everything starts to appear new which feels quite refreshing and soothing at the same time. It is not the big and fancy location that makes a good picture, it is always you who make a photo of your world you are living in. You should think of interesting stories or messages of the situation you captured.

At times, we tend to get bored. Most often, this happens because our lives often become so monotonous – using the same mode of transport every day, coming across the same kind of plants and trees, but when you start photographing these things, you begin noticing certain intricacies that they have about them which you haven’t observed before.

At times like these, you ask yourself – “Why didn’t I notice this before!?”

It feels like someone has elevated your sense of sight all of a sudden.

To Practice Your Art
