Fine Art Photography by Frederick M. Stevens
essence of a photograph is that instant when light, traveling
through a lens, strikes the film or sensor in the camera.
Everything which takes place before that instant is preparation; the
instant itself is inspiration, everything after, is presentation. A
photographer is a person who gets to choose when, where and
such instants occur. The difference in photographers is in
they capture and reveal those instants. Even among the most
prolific photographers, these instants, when put end to end, amount
to only a few minutes of actual exposure per year. Within that
context, I’m just trying to get in a few good hours of photography
before I die.
I work, in photography, with tools and techniques which allow me to capture a unique and personal interpretation of what exists in the real world as light, form, texture, color and mass. I balance the reality of these things (as they have to exist to be photographed) with my vision of them. What results from this process is my personal artistic vision.
