Thomctighe "Photography is an art. It forces artists to discard their old routine and forget their old formulas. It has opened our eyes and forced us to see that which previously we have not seen; a great and inexpressible service for Art. It is thanks to photography that Truth has finally come out of her well. She will never go back."

Bokehen The question should have been: "Why Isn't Photography Art"

I get this comment all the time simply because I'm an artist first, photographer second and I tend to blend the two together. When one post my images in a photography type forum, I'm met with resistance and criticism. Yet post these same images in an art forum etc, My images are welcomed as an art form and not just a picture taken with a camera.

pastelartprints Photography is an art because of how it represents, how it communicates and transmits ideas.

I hope that this difference of opinion doesn't effect any future topics on the forum.

@just @Jason

That's the way I imagined it.

If you are going to use terms like 'hyper literal", I hope that you don't engage me further. When you are a truly a natural artist, cameras make it easier to produce art.
