  • Happy Birthday Photo-based Art Forum!

    On May 31, 2003, this forum was one year old.

    See attachment for a special cake image.

    Thanks to Jeannie, Vikki, Mike and Jak and Lisa for engaging in those photo-art discussions back in 2002, which prompted Doug to add another room onto the house.

    It's been a blast ever since, despite an occasional speed bump. It goes with the territory.

    A HUGE thanks to Phyllis Stewart, who manages the mini-challenges and is so generous with her feedback.

    Likewise a heartfelt thanks to each of you who contributes images, tutorials, "how to's," ideas and questions. Without that, this site is nothing but highly functional software spinning around empty on a hard disk somewhere.

    And of course, "Thanks, Doug," for all you have done and continue to do for so many.

    For the benefit of prospective new members down the line, use this thread to share some of the things you enjoy about the Photo-based Art forum, things you've learned, etc.

    What keeps you coming back?

    It's a privilege being the moderator and engaging so many kind hearted, talented folks.

    I'm looking forward to year II.

    Art Tag

    In addition to all the wonderful aspects of this forum, I really enjoy Art Tag when it rolls around. It's a lot of fun to see how the images change with each user! I've "watched" several matches and even done a couple myself and really do enjoy them a lot.

      When I found this site last summer, I was only interested in retouching and restoration, since that's what I offer (among other things) on my web site ( ...pardon the plug ) Then I discovered Danny's new photo art forum, and really got hooked! I never imagined so much art could be created directly from photos on a computer. I have been an addict ever since, and I thank Danny for introducing me to this wonderful pastime.

      I still love the retouching questions and challenges as well, and look forward to those when I'm in the mood to work a bit harder.

        Danny you write:

        I enjoy the ability to express a creative side of me that has always been there trying to get out.

        Now things I haved learned! That would take a whole page and then some.

        Why do I come back???
        To learn and enjoy the company of a very nice group of talented people.

        To any new person who has come to this site ---- get ready for that creative side to take over!

          On May 30, 2002 Doug Nelson, the owner/webmaster of RetouchPRO, added the Photo-Based Art forum in response to the growing interest of members in image manipulation. Since then it's been a privilege for me to have served as the moderator of this forum.

          Consolidating Photo Art
          by chiquitita
          I notice that when using the "Last 24 hours" which is what I usually look at to see the new posts, that Restoration, Retouching and Manipulation are all grouped under one forum while Photo Art has at least 3 different sections it is posted under (photo art 101, photo based art, and photo art...

          At first this was a post I submitted to the original "PS Graphics - Starting..." thread by Dough Nelson, but it got buried so deep down in the levels I doubt anyone will find it unless very persistant at digging.

          So, for varous reasons I decided to move it to a new thread, but...

          Art in Photography.....Discussion
          by Tareq
          Hey all,

          I would like to ask about: What is art in photography?
          How can you define Photography Fine Art?
          When you can say about a photo that it is art?
          What is the standard or qualification for the photo to be an art?
          Who can tell about any photo that it...
