Where Does This Belong?
With the advent of two new forums, it looks like my hopes for an "Artistic Look" forum are dashed. So, where do I post images like this?
I have posted similar icm's in the Landscape Forum yet, I think, most there are trying to actually capture detail in their landscapes. I posted a few in the DX Forum since that is the gear I used but it is kind of like a fish out of water. I was hoping for an forum devoted to artistic interpretations since I would not just post images but discuss them as well. Learn from the experiences and efforts of others. It is hard for me to imagine that there are more people taking underwater photographs than participating in the following:
Intentional camera movement
Treatments using software or apps such as Instagram, Photoshop filters, and Color Efex film analogs.
Minimalism with an example being a slow shutter, mono seascape with just a few poles sticking out of the soft water.
Bokeh both as a complement to subject-oriented photography and as more of an end to itself. Lots of gear discussions possible.
Movements such as surrealism, impressionism, abstract expressionism.
Retro styles and effects and even the use of old equipment for the real thing.
Fill in your own items to add to this list. That's about as thorough as I get.
I think such a forum would be pretty lively, but, for now, I will have to use one of the underwater disposable cameras I picked up a year or so ago and head to a nearby pond.
