|A SIMPLE STUDY FROM A SIMPLE ARTIST|
Here is how I break it down for my work. If the image reveals something about the subject that transcends the norm, that it perhaps reveals an essence had not yet been exposed, and it is well crafted, it could be art. If the image is a documentary recording of an event, structure, or that of a naturally occurring scene, it likely is more of a traditional photograph. It could be "artfully" processed, but it is a photograph.
