How to Do Photography of Artistic Quality

2017-03-16

You've seen the work of Robert Mapplethorpe; of Roger Ballen, Annie Leibovitz or Ilse Bing. Envious artistry right there. The flow of beauty is natural, as if effortlessly done. But to have such effortlessness is to actually work hard for it.

Photographer Eric Kim believes that artistic photography is achievable. Like all mediums of art, it takes practice and discipline. One needs a keen eye to pay attention; the strength to look at the world as it is and not just in photographs only to mimic them; developing the visual library of imagination and the freeing of the soul to express one's spirit.

Hear out Kim's few yet important reminders in fine art photography.
