Some fine art photographers thrive in a studio setting, where they can control all the details of a shoot. Others thrive in natural settings, such as wild landscapes, where they can’t control everything. Then, instead of creating a scene from their imagination, they put their imagination and style into a scene that’s already there.
Fine art nature and landscape photography have become increasingly popular thanks to image editors, which allow photographers to easily alter the appearance of a scene. But you don’t need an image editor to create fine art. There are a handful of other ways to create a striking fine art photo of nature.
For instance, you can find a unique perspective, use in-camera techniques, or develop a series of images around a core idea. Though post-processing allows for more possibilities, it’s not a prerequisite to becoming a fine art photographer!
