According to Wikipedia, “Fine-art photography is photography created in accordance with the vision of the photographer as artist, using photography as a medium for creative expression. The goal of fine-art photography is to express an idea, a message, or an emotion.”

In my opinion, art and photography are the same thing.  “Photography is photography as a tool just like painting, sculpture or other artistic manifestation that serves an artist in order to express oneself.”  When I am creating a fine art piece from a photographic image, this is a chance for me to add another dimension to an image, for me to give an image a different life.
