    Hi all,

    IF this is in the wrong section, please feel free to move it. I want to find out more about fine art photography. Have been massively inspired by Jose Villas :drool: website and want to find out more about the art of fine art. Anyone know of any tutorials, good books or the like that will help me learn more about digital FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY????

    I have searched a bit, but can only find sites of fine art photographers which is great for inspiration, but I am keen to learn the 'how toos'.

    Thanks in advance, Jem x

    The "how too's" are up to you. Develop YOUR style. Do the best you can and hope it flies. Experience is key. It will not happen over night; that is for sure.

    And yes. Jose Villas photos are good. Know that if you were shooting a wedding in ancient Spain during the magic hours your work would turn out as equally dramatic.

    Love & Bass

    Thanks Craig. I have been practicing but still too nervous about being 'shot down' :0) on here to post them.... hopefully I will get over it soon and just put em up there.

    Because I know little about it, except that I LOve the look of it, I am unsure when it would be called 'too photoshopped' as opposed to being a piece of 'fine art' photography???????? Will keep checking out websites, and trying my own spin and see what happens... Was so hoping there might be a book about how tos! :0(
    x thanks xjem x
