Why Photographic Art?

The beauty of the world is captured and frozen in time by the photograph. A precious moment is suspended forever, never to be exactly replicated. This is particularly true in nature, as light, and the relationship of elements, are constantly in flux. Photographic art goes beyond the idea of simply taking a picture. It is not accidental. There is often an element of serendipity, and an occasional bit of downright luck. For the most part, long thought, careful planning, and a conscious resistance to release the shutter are essential.

The photographic artist must wait patiently. It is the combination of careful observation, reading light, and knowing when NOT to trip the shutter, that leads to excellence.

It is about quality rather than quantity, thinking more about what is wrong with an image than what is right. The accomplished photographic artist will recognize beauty where ever it is. However even the smallest flaw must also be equally noted, and until resolved the artist must wait, reposition, recompose, wait again, and ultimately, if the scene in the viewfinder falls short, walk away.
