Perth Fine Art Photography
“Fine art” can be simply explained as any art form practiced purely for its beauty. The purpose of fine art is to exist for the viewers enjoyment. Historically fine art mediums included painting, sculpture, architecture, music, and poetry, but now includes photography too. A fine art portrait photograph is intended to be displayed on your walls. To be appreciated. It should not be saved on a USB and never printed. Think of it as “photo décor.”
Are you after just one amazing portrait? A portrait that is timeless and has that “wow” factor? If so a Perth fine art photography session is for you! I tailor these sessions for those wishing for a few hero pieces. Whether that be for yourself, your children or a combination of both.
Classic Fine Art Portraits
I focus on classic, minimalistic posing. My favourite colour palette is muted. Some may call it vintage inspired. My clients appreciate the beauty and subtlety in the composition of their image. The location we’ve selected or the quality backdrops is an important factor in creating this style of imagery. And of course the clothing. Of greater importance is the correct lighting and flattering posing. And let us not forget the artistic editing, which is far more detailed with fine art portraits than any other session.
Double Exposure Fine Art Portraits
These portraits are a favourite of mine. As a photographic technique, double (or multiple) exposures have existed since the camera was first invented. In this style at least two photos seamlessly merge to compose one image. Elements of both images are visible in the composition. I like to layer several images from the same scene on top of each other. Alternatively, the combination of a portrait and a natural scene creates a stunning double exposure.
