Fine Art Photography by Tim Fontenot

I am Very excited you have chosen this web site in search of your photography needs -  thank you.


Ansel Adams once wrote: "Art implies control of reality, for reality itself possesses no sense of the aesthetic. Photography becomes an art when certain controls are applied."   The art images within these galleries have had "certain controls applied".


An author of Fine Art Photography books wrote,

"Fine art photography is first about the artist, second about the subject, and third about technique. The artist is the most important element in the creation of art. The same artist may, and often does, work with various subjects during his career, using a number of different techniques and possibly a variety of mediums. The goal is to create a work of art; subjects and techniques are both vehicles used in the process of reaching this goal."(1)


"Because art is first about the artist, it is essential that the artist control the work. Only through this control can the artist’s personality, inspiration, passion, and vision become part of the work. Only through this control can the artist share his vision through his work. Ultimately, what the audience wants is to see how a specific artist views the world, and this can only take place if the artist assumes full control of the creation of a work of art." (2)


In order to view the images in these Fine Art galleries, one must experience them in their totality … composition, lighting, the image's “story” - it's effect on your emotions.  These images have been Created – the culmination of base image, enhancements, and my “vision” for each.  It is my sincere hope that you believe they can add value to your personal/business environment.


Thank you for your business, and please encourage your friends to visit this site for their Fine Art image needs.
