Archive for 'Fine Art'
If you are new to following me or my fine art circle, this is a project that I started last year with a group of talented photographers. It has changed and grown over the past year, but the premise remains the same. Every month we post our favourite Fine Art photographs from any genre, exploring the idea of Fine Art, how each artist defines it and what it means to them.The original idea can be credited back to Nichole Van and her Elevate Fine Art project.
Winter is going on a little long here……so I’m lightening my mood with flowers this month! Last month I explored Fine Art Portraiture – you can see that post here.
Now please click around the circle and see what Stacie Smith has in store for you this month!
Thanks for looking! As always, I’d love to hear from you – leave me a comment!
I’ve been trying to work on my Fine Art portraiture and channel my inner Amy Grace from A Beautiful Life photo. She inspires me with her words and images, if you get a chance to check her out please do! But be sure to follow around our circle, the talent in this Fine Art circle is incredible.

Hope you enjoyed my take on a Fine Art sunset this month. I’m wishing I was still basking in the glow of these warm sunsets! Please head on over to my friend Nancy, of Nancy Schumacher Photography from Thompson, ND next and click your way through our circle. We have an amazing group of photographers!
Well, this is year two of belonging to an amazingly talented group of ladies who are committed to posting a ‘fine art’ image every month. My initial post with this group is here. I’m cheating a bit this month since I’m on holidays and have limited computer time:) I also used this image as my Project 26 submission this week:)
Now please take the time to continue around the circle – there are some amazing images this month! Next up is Eleanor from Eleanor Haley Photography located in Baltimore.
Once again trying my hand at something totally different for me:) I love how this group challenges me and makes me think of ‘art’ in new and different ways. Today I managed to capture one of ‘our’ birds outside the kitchen window. For years now we have these birds that make their nests in our roll shutter window boxes outside. It’s so awesome – and every spring they have their babies and there is always a hubbub of activity at the window. They been around a lot lately – not sure if they are settling in for winter or preparing to pack up and leave;) Regardless – this is one of the cute creatures that I get to peek at everyday!
Now head on over to my friend, Amy Grace at A Beautiful Life photo in San Diego – her writing is as beautiful as the images she captures.
I missed my blog circles the past couple months…..summer has been nuts over here…..but all in GREAT way! I’ve been lucky enough to do some second shooting this summer with a good friend of mine, Carmen of Freemark photography! I’m using a lens baby image as my “fine art” image this month as I’m still in catch up mode! After checking out this gorgeous couple, click on around the circle to see some AMAZING women and their Fine Art photographs this month!
Now head on over and visit my super talented friend at January Skye Photography.

Thank goodness this challenge is monthly! I’m finding it very difficult and I feel WAY out of my element and comfort zone. This month rather than try and take a picture with fine art intent, I used an old photo from a trip we took to Hawaii two years ago and re-edited it. It was tons of fun and other than a few minutes of swearing at my computer because I couldn’t figure out how to resize my textures……..it was all good!! I actually love this months image – mostly because I LOVE the ocean, and Hawaii, the beach and have great memories of this trip. I find it super interesting to look back on my photos – I know exactly what my ‘intent’ was here in capturing this beach scene – and I fell short (I thought that then and still feel that now) but now I can look at the picture and tell myself how I should have moved to capture my intent.
Don’t forget to click around and check our circle of talent. From here you should click on over to Amy Grace at A beautiful life photo and see her take on fine art photography this month.
You know, I thought it would be a good idea;) I thought it would be a good growing, challenging experience.
I joined a group of photographers to participate in a monthly circle of sharing Fine Art Photography. The original idea can be credited to NicholeV who is TOTALLY worth checking out. Her visions and photographs, truly are works of art.
So, I’ve been feeling burnt out and uninspired that past couple of weeks, and I’ve really struggled with this challenge this month. I grappled with the many different definitions of fine art photography, trying to decide where my art might fit in and what picture might best be defined for within this category. Wikipedia defines it as “photographs that are created in accordance with the creative vision of the photographer as artist”. I was going to put this as my entry for the month as it really was taken with forethought and with a particular vision in mind. But in the end decided on the picture below.
Now please go and check out my friend Lindsey and see what she is ‘igniting’ in Alabama. As always, please leave me your comments:-)
Our theme this week was winter (click here if you want the backstory)…..and at first I was worried I might not have a wintry picture to show as it has been such an atypical winter here. But, fear not, Mother Nature reared her ugly head and presented us with FULL ON WINTER. Now my worry was that it was too cold to photograph anything outside (as I type it’s supposed to be a -45 degree windchill (that’s celsius for my American friends!)) Crazy freakin’ cold! So, while the kids were occupied in the back seat of the car I snuck out to take this picture. It’s so cold right now the birds aren’t even interested in the berries:P
