Photographer As Artist

Laguna Beach: The Artsy Fartsy Of The Art Festival GroundsCan Photography Be called Art? That question has been answered and it's yes.

At minimum the photo should be pleasing to the eye. Good composition is a must. You know, all them things your art instructor told you 50 years ago still apply. The photographs I make have to meet only one criteria and that is "My Approval."

The story goes that a reporter asked the nature photographer Elliot Porter to describe his work. Mr Porter replied: "If I could to that I wouldn't be a photographer." I should add that Mr Porter's son has said that his father had no confidence in his own writing.

For myself I have on occasion got off the beach and walked Laguna Beach in search of interesting compositions.
This is one.
