Fine Art Self-Portraiture

This was my first attempt at fine art self-portraiture. I tried to create tension using a heavy baroque diagonal with a dark and moody atmosphere. The composition was calculated, and there's hidden meaning in a lot of the image, but that doesn't necessarily make it good art. I'm looking for critiques and help getting better.

Some of my latest works

With a limited amount of groups showcasing interiors, I thought it would be great to post some work here in the Fine Art group. Hope that is ok?

Look forward to meeting a few of you, if only through a screen.

Thanks James


Lately I've been focussing on mental health issues in my conceptual work. It's a topic that feels ripe for inspiration, and recently a member of my family has been going through some incredibly rough times due to their mental illness. This image is an exploration of that sinking and drowning feeling that is associated with depression and...

Do These Fit Fine Art?

Hello everyone, I'm kind of new here to Fstoppers. I have included some of my photos that I would consider "fine art" type photos. I would love to get some feedback on these. Would you consider these "fine art" photos?

Promoting a fine art series

Hi everyone, I'm me to this group and fstoppers in general so forgive me if I miss anything.

I've been photographing for many years and have just now come up with a series of images that I feel are worthy of an exhibition. The trouble is I don't really know how I should go about it. Should I be pursuing a local gallery? Should I be...

A distillery viewpoint

I shot a micro distillery today. The manager saw one of my tone mapped engine block shots and asked if I could do the same for his distillery equipment. Here's one of a tower in the distillery:

To the moderator(s) I attempted to upload an image, but the program would not allow it. I'm able to add photos to my gallery, however. Am I...

Diesel in need of help...

First image here. This is a composite of 7 shots merged in Photomatix Pro 5 and given a bit of tone mapping. I like this kind of processing for mechanical stuff. To show you how subjective a judge can be at an exhibition, this shot received third place in the Photographic Division at my very first exhibit. :-)

New to the group and have a question...

I shoot mostly portraits and head shots, but some of my other work, I list as fine art. This could be anything from skies, cityscapes, or just whatever happens to catch my eye at the time. If this has been asked before my apologies and just point me to the right post, but what exactly is a fine art photograph? How do you define it?

Dead Rose Set

Two very different looks, I set out to makes the first image and the second was just an experiment at the time. I've made it a point to focus strictly on minimalism and negative space for the next month so these are more exercises than anything.

First was shot w/ a shallow DOF and edited heavily in PS to go for a painterly sort of affect...

Winter Fog

Foggy winter lake with a bridge. Taken from a distance and cropped and some grain added in post. Shooting thru fog can create a different look.
