Guest Matthew G. Beall Fine Art Photography

Matthew G. Beall is a multi-talented artist/photographer living in Ulm, Germany.  I am fortunate that Matthew G. Beall Vision Driven Fine Art Photographer shares his thoughts about photography here: 
Taking a picture involves very little effort and no creative vision. Let's call these snapshots, which are basically a record of an event or subject. Although it may be a pretty image, it is still a snapshot or, if you'd like,  a recording of what was in front of you. There is nothing wrong with that, but it lacks intent i.e. vision, creativity and workmanship. Making a fine art photograph is completely controlled by the artist. This is intent. The final result is the vision the artist is expressing to the viewer.  It is the "reality" of the artist, not reality itself. It is art.
