a. Do YOU feel photography is fine or applied art? Why? How do photographers use formal elements in their pictures? Is it the same as someone who makes paintings and drawings? a. I honestly feel photography is both an applied art and a fine art. Besides the obvious use of photography in the world of advertising, photographs can be used as a powerful tool to propel social change in the world as well. Though photography can be is used in a wide array of practical ways; sometimes a beautiful picture is just meant to be admired as a beautiful picture that asks’ nothing in return. Photographs share a great number of formal elements with their more traditional art counterparts. Light, shape/forms, negative and positive space, texture, line and color saturation. These elements are essential for the photographer to capture their vision. I believe a photographer’s process is similar to that of a traditional artist. They use artistic elements to evoke a tone within their work to express emotion, a message, or even change.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
