An image of any subject matter executed in black and white or varying tones of one colour.
Create your fine art image by keeping it simple. Busy backgrounds can be distracting, set your subject against a simple background, make it stand out. Keeping it simple doesn’t mean keep it boring. Use photographic techniques such as negative space, bright colours, textures and bokeh to make your image stand out.
It's in the title
Taking your inspiration from the title of a verifiable film, book or song create and image that matches your title.
Earth wind fire and water make up the 4 elements of our world. Convey these elements through your photography.
High or Low key
High key photographs have little or no shadows and usually evoke a feel of high energy or happiness. Often multiple light sources are used to create such images. Conversely low key photographs contain lots of deep shadows and in many cases lots of black to define the subject of the image, most commonly shot using a single light source. Use your knowledge of lighting techniques to produce you finest work.
