I’ve always appreciated narrow vertical or horizontal photographs, whether it was done with a panorama camera, a old banquet camera, stitching together of multiple images or as in this case a tight crop. I’ve never had great success in posting them with many web based platforms distorting them horribly one way or another but this image of a piano keyboard seems to hold up quite nicely and is available at Fine Art America.
Everyone can take a picture of a building, add the movement away from the realm of reality by incorporating the long exposure streaky cloud feel and the now almost universal Joel post-processing nous. But a photograph is not a picture; it is the imbuing of pixels with part of the artists’ soul, telling a story not via one image but via a holistic series with an over-arching vision and statement. We must not lose sight of fine art; by all means learn high end post-processing, but do not forget to leave a part of you in every image you produce.
