Do you love to explore photography exhibits in art museums? Do you ask yourself what makes a photograph or a photographer’s body of work fine art? Do you wonder whether your photographs are fine art? Do you want others to think of your photography as being fine art? If you answer yes to any of these questions, consider joining the “Photography as Fine Art" SIG. We have been exploring these questions and sharing feedback on each other’s images for several years. Our approach and our activities vary from month to month and include critiques of each other’s work (voluntary, no pressure), museum and gallery visits, artist/curator talks, discussions of the work of specific recognized fine art photographers, technical presentations/discussions, group exhibitions and fun exercises.

Through participation in this group, photographers can expect to learn from other photographers; enhance and refine their own personal photographic vision and style; be provided opportunities to share their work through critique, exhibits, and programs for club members; and have fun and form relationships in the process.
