The Definitions In Terms Of Production Quality
While the dictionary definition is useful, there’s another way to think about fine art and decorative art. Or more to the point of this article, how to think about fine art photography as wall decor. To be specific, the way to think about it is in terms of production quality. As an example, think paper plates and plastic utensils vs. a good set of tableware. Both serve the same function but in terms of production quality, they are far from the same. The paper plates and plastic utensils are short-term products. On the other hand, the fine tableware, if taken care of, will last a lifetime. And, if the tableware is good enough, maybe we’ll pass it along when we no longer need it.
What is Fine Art Photography?
Rather than get into a discussion of fine art in terms of personal views and just to keep things clear, let’s talk about fine art photography in terms of the production quality. When considering production quality, a fine art photograph is printed in a manner that keeps permanence in mind.

Dress Up Your Walls With High-Quality Work.
Visit the online platforms where I sell pictures to hang on your wall. I sell my work in limited places to ensure quality control. While there are many art selling platforms, most leave the artist out of the loop in terms of quality control. As a result, you won’t find my work available for sale in the most popular places. I’ve made sure that when ya order a print from me, the quality is “fine art” quality.
I’ve decided to up my game when it comes to the experience of buyin’ my prints. What I mean is that I want the person lookin’ to buy a print to have the same experience on my site that they’d have on some of the more popular websites that sell art. This platform provides an exceptional experience for the visitor. Even more, I think that the user experience is as good as, or better than, any of the other online art purchasing places. Among other features, there’s a standard wall preview feature AND a wall preview feature where you can use the camera on your phone, or another device with a camera (tablet, laptop, etc.), to preview the work as it will appear on YOUR WALL.
