George Wheelhouse | Fine Art Nature Photography – Fine Art Photography Article

George Wheelhouse | Fine Art Nature Photography An email drops into my inbox, from a company that used to run a photography competition, to tell me about the exciting new competition they’re now launching! To be honest, my heart sinks. It just feels cynical at this point. The addition of each new competition slowly degrades the prestige of those already in existence, in a race to the bottom. And lets face it, half the photographers on social media now feature…

Joy of creative work | Paul Politis – Black & White Photography Article

Joy of creative work | Paul Politis “Art is simply a result of expression during right feeling. It’s a result of a grip on the fundamentals of nature, the spirit of life, the constructive force, the secret of growth, a real understanding of the relative importance of things, order, balance. Any material will do. After all, the object is not to make art, but to be in the wonderful state which makes art inevitable. In every human being there is…

To find their way to art, which is their consolation – Black & White Photography Article

To find their way to art, which is their consolation “Paradoxically, photographers must also face the threat that their vision may one day be denied them. Their capacity to find their way to art, which is their consolation – to see things whole – may fail an hour or a month or forever because of fatigue or misjudgment or some shift in spirit that cannot be predicted or understood or even recognized until it has happened past correction. For…

No thing is beautiful | Paul Politis – Black & White Photography Article

No thing is beautiful | Paul Politis “The real study of an art student is more of a development of that sensitive nature and appreciative imagination with which he was so fully endowed when a child, and which, unfortunately in almost all cases, the contact with the grown-ups shames out of him before he has passed into what is understood as real life. Persons and things are whatever we imagine them to be. We have little interest in the material…

George Wheelhouse | Fine Art Nature Photography So here we are in autumn. It’s Lockdown 2.0, and I’m back to photographing leaves. Only this time I started before lockdown. Back in the spring (AKA Lockdown 1.0) I started a project photographing leaf portraits, and having been really pleased with the results I had to add the companion piece for autumn. Like my animal portraits, I’ve shot the seasons in opposing styles, using high-key for spring, and low-key for autumn. This…

Stones to step on or stones to avoid – Black & White Photography Article

Stones to step on or stones to avoid “Every student should put down in some form or other his findings. All any man can hope to do is to add his fragment to the whole. No man can be final, but he can record his progress, and whatever he records is so much done in the thrashing out of the Whole thing. What he leaves is so much for others to use as stones to step on or stones…

Approved taste | Paul Politis – Black & White Photography Article

Approved taste | Paul Politis “One of the great difficulties of an art student is to decide between his own natural impressions and what he thinks should be his impressions. When the majority of students and the majority of so-called arrived artists go out into landscape, saying they intend to look for a “motive”, they too often mean, unconsciously enough, that it is their intention to look until they have found an arrangement in the landscape most like some one…

The impulse for beauty can force its way through every boundary – Black & White Photography Article

The impulse for beauty can force its way through every boundary “Everything that is beautiful is orderly, and there can be no order unless things are in their right relation to each other. Of this right relation throughout the world beauty is born. A musical scale […] is order in sound, sculpture as the Greeks saw it, big, sure, infinite, is order in proportion; painting, in which the artist has the wisdom that ordained the rainbow is order in color;…

An Illusory, Infinite Staircase In Japan By Argentinian Artist Leandro Erlich – Fine Art Photography Article

An Illusory, Infinite Staircase In Japan By Argentinian Artist Leandro Erlich The piece is part of the group exhibition ‘The power of things’.

When I processed why that would be, I realised it was because I could feel autumn creeping in. To most people the end of summer is something they never look forward to. The end of those sunny days & warm evenings, and the loss of greenery to the gardens and natural spaces…

Charlotte Thrane’s Unique Sculptural Works Feature Contrasting Textures And Colors – Fine Art Photography Article

Charlotte Thrane’s Unique Sculptural Works Feature Contrasting Textures And Colors Working with themes of the body and tactile experience, Thrane strives to create large-scale works that elicit a feeling of closeness. Her process involves selecting materials and using physical activities such as folding, stacking, bending, squeezing, stretching, dipping, and tying. “The works therefore function as a form of registration of these bodily actions, as well as the physicality, temporality, and changeability that are basic conditions of our existence,” she explains.…

George Wheelhouse | Fine Art Nature Photography I really enjoy photographing farmyard animals and livestock, which tend to be overlooked by most nature photographers, as they’re not wild. You don’t get the ‘thrill of the chase’ feeling that you get when out looking for some scarce or timid creature, but on the flip side you do get to work with an animal which is used to humans, and that will allow you in closer, for a more intimate and expressive…

George Wheelhouse | Fine Art Nature Photography One of the fantastic things about putting photos out to the world is seeing other people’s interpretations of them. It’s always exciting to hear from artists who have drawn or painted one of my photos. As a former pencil artist in my youth, I am blown away by the skill of some of these people, and I’m very envious of their talent. In truth, I’d be drawing now if I was good enough…
