DetailsCAPA defines artistic as “an image produced with the intention to portray a creative vision based primarily on an aesthetic and emotional thrust.” The photographer will use subjects, elements and techniques as a vehicle in the process of
conveying their feelings and vision to reveal an original, creative and individual expression.
The following themes may be considered:
Abstract Art: is a method of expressing ideas and emotions with photographed image elements without the intention of creating a traditional or realistic image. Examples of creating Abstract Art – a captured image is distorted or transformed; double exposure; blurred; smoke form captured image; intentional camera movement or composition of captured images, etc.
Altered Reality: is a manipulation of one or more photographed elements to create a fictional scene which conveys a message or tells a story. For example, tiny planet effect images are accepted in this theme. This is stitching together multiple photos of a scene, to create a “tiny planet” effect that gives the viewer a new perspective on your surroundings. High Dynamic Range (HDR) image without additional changes is not considered an Altered Reality image.Creative Image: is one that was specifically created using props and/or bokeh, double exposure effect, high-speed capture, lens balls, LED light stick, light painting, long-exposures, macro, multiple exposures, photo mosaic, photo montage, photo montage, rain, reflection, shadows, steel wool, string of lights, water drop, water splash, water & oil, etc.
