Fine Art Friday {Greenwood, SC Photographer}

happy friday everyone!  this year i’m starting a new project, fine art friday, with some of my fellow photographers over at the 4 the love of focus (4tlof) forum.  4tlof is a forum where professional women photographers come together online to discuss business and marketing topics, as well as find inspiration and friendship.  there are some fabulous ladies on this forum and and you’ll see just what i mean by following our blog circle around to view each photo.

so let’s get started here!  first off, what is fine art photography?  well, fine art can be described as photographs that are created to fulfill the creative vision of the artist.  that’s a pretty broad definition so think of it this way…if you could imagine hanging it on your wall, then it could be considered fine art.  not to say you’d want to hang all pieces of fine art on your wall, considering we all have different likes and dislikes when it comes to art.  but i think that helps you to get the idea.

here is my photo for the january edition of fine art friday.  i’m currently in the throws of co-chairing the mid-winter ball for the self regional healthcare foundation and this year’s theme is “a seaside soiree”.  as hard as i may try, i just can’t seem to get all things beachy out of my head.  so i found it only fitting that i photograph this beautiful sea shell that i discovered while diving in turks and caicos last summer.  it wasn’t nearly this beautiful when i saw it on the ocean floor…but after many cleaning treatments, it’s full beauty has been restored.  i hope you enjoy it.  and don’t forget to click on through the blog circle to see what others have envisioned as fine art.  you can start by checking out Evie Curley Greensboro NC Child and Family Photographer.

and if you want to check out another great group of photographers doing fine art friday, start with Southeast Missouri Photographer, Stephanie Greenwell.
