    Capturing the Extraordinary

    Fine Art Photography – Versatile and Dynamic Complement to Contemporary Design

    This one hour presentation explores the relevance of photography as a fine art form and its historic claim to acceptance as one of the visual arts through the works of Ansel Adams and other established fine art photographers.

    The lecture will use a power-point presentation format with historic examples of Fine Art Photography both in North America and Europe. Discussion will include aspects of limited editions and numbered prints. Emphasis will be on certificates of authentication, archival papers, inks and mats – all considerations for establishing the value of a print as fine art.

    The lecture will distinguish between a picture and a photograph of artistic merit. It will highlight the difference between a snapshot which captures a moment in time and a photograph that expresses a creative vision. Like painting, emotion and essence are essential to the successful fine art photograph. Aspects of fine art photography will be explored and include message, intent, choice, technique and quality.
    The talk will conclude with consideration for presentation and care of quality works of photographic art. Included will be many examples of themed pieces to complement any number of design considerations.Participants will receive a reference/resource package and a Certificate of Completion for submission to their association for accreditation.
