Art in the Sky, by David EvansWork of Art is the theme for Viewpoint Photographic Art Center’s 10th annual juried show, TWELVE. Work of Art brings attention to the entire process of creating a photograph. It comes as no surprise to photographers, but there is a good deal more to making a well-crafted, meaningful photograph than a good camera with the right lens. Such photographs involve the preparation for “being there” as well as choosing the right place, the right time, right framing, right ISO, right shutter speed, and right aperture. Even these speak only to the initial capturing of the image. The interpretations that follow are partners in the making process, the work. The editing decisions of post processing are an enormous part of the work whether at the computer or in the darkroom. Nor is making a final print the end of the work. Now there are decisions about the size, color and style of the mat, plus where to sign and how to title the work. All these things and much more go into making an artful photograph that is an expression of the photographer’s idea. After all of it, the final word or last decision might be to share the photograph with others.
