In this blog post, I will discuss the elements of art photography. It’s a popular genre for artists to explore and there are many different ways that you can approach it. In this post I’ll break down some of the key features that make up an art photo and how each one affects your final product.
The Rule of Thirds
The Rule of Thirds is a very important compositional rule that can also be considered a guideline. It dictates that you divide your image into 9 equal parts, both horizontally and vertically.
Leading lines are a way of drawing the eye to one of your chosen focal points in an image. They can be subtle or striking. Some common examples include leading from the bottom of the frame to a subject that is higher up, or vice versa. Leading lines can be created by trees, staircases, roads, railroad tracks and bodies of water. Busy cityscapes with lots of lines crisscrossing each other can also be very good for this technique.
Symmetry and Patterns
Symmetry and patterns can be found in both nature and art. Symmetry creates a comforting type of balance within an image. It provides a sense of calmness, serenity, or stability.

Diane Arbus was an American photographer famous for her black and white photographs of people on the margins of society. She took many pictures that were very different from what we see in today’s world, but she showed them to be beautiful through photography. One example is a picture she called “Child with Toy Hand Grenade In Central Park,” which shows a child reaching out to touch a toy hand grenade propped up against some rocks near the lake in New York City’s Central Park. Arbus thought it would be interesting if one day someone picked up this object without realizing its potential danger (a hand grenade). Of course, no one ever did pick up the real thing!

Art can be defined in many ways. Some people see fine art photography as a form of art, while others may not. The fine arts division of the Academy defines fine arts as “a category that encompasses creative works from painting and sculpture to music and theater.” This blog post will discuss how fine art photography is an expression of emotions- both the artist’s own and those experienced by viewers.
Fine-art photography is a form of art that combines creativity and beauty. The goal for all the photographers who create this type of work is to express an idea, message or emotion through their photographs. than the personal, emotional experience of fine art photography.
Artists who create fine art photographs often use various photographic techniques to capture not only what is in front of them but also how they feel about what’s before their lens: The artist looks for ways to express emotion through composition and gesture as well as camera angles and lighting.
This can be seen depicted in the photograph by Rokeby Museum photographer Kadir Nelson, titled “The Black Boy.” It captures the intense emotions felt from a young child watching an older man doing manual labor on his family farm. Not all photographers are able to convey these types of strong feelings with such clarity though; this type of skill takes practice and understanding of oneself.
