Photographic excellence was once the domain of the Masters. Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, Walker Evans, Edward Steichen, and Henri Cartier Bresson are just a few of those outstanding photographers who paved the road to excellence with their great works.
But the art of photography today, in the digital era, has set new standards. The ability to take, manipulate and enhance images has led to a new period of inspiration. New technologies have made it possible to achieve higher levels of artistic accomplishment.
With so many talented people sharing their work, it's increasingly difficult to stand out. On the other hand, art belongs to everyone and the new technologies have made it possible for many to find, develop and share their artistic vision.
A group of growing photographers featuring a bi-monthly ezine showcasing a portfolio of twelve images from one selected photographer. New and beautiful images are added daily under the IMAGES tab of this group -- an inspiring and innovative group worth following.
