Artistic Image: Photographic Art

My extensive photographic art gallery features high-quality outdoor and nature photography. My images are different than those elsewhere as they are from the eye of the photographer. This means that none of my images were edited to add elements that were never originally there. I believe that the best photo is one that is original with the least amount of post-processing possible. Therefore, when you browse my extensive gallery, you can be sure that my stunning abstract pictures, brilliant black and white photographs, colorful flower images, and the rest of my photographs are the best quality and were never edited to add artificial elements. What then is photograhic art? Photographic art is an artistic composition taken directly from a camera. It could be digital or film, but it is what sets professional photographers apart from everyone else. Browse my photo gallery using the category links above or check out my featured images.

About the Photographer

about photo

Thanks for your interest in Artistic Image! My name is Richard Perry. I have been interested in photography since I received my first Kodak 110 Instamatic camera as a child, Later, I graduated from the New York Institute of Photography. Much of my work comes from the many miles of hiking that I have done in the Northeast, Southeast, Southwest, and the Rocky Mountains. My subject matter includes fine art landscapes, abstracts, closeups, waterfalls, wildlife, birds, black and whites, and others that are shot in a unique, artistic fashion. I believe that photography is in the eye of the photographer and not in fancy, expensive equipment or software. All images appear as they did when I clicked the shutter. That is why every image at will never be photoshopped or altered using software. I hope you enjoy my images as much as I enjoyed creating them.

What is the secret behind the pictures?


By Richard Perry

With so many great unphotoshopped pictures at Artistic Image, you may be wondering what the secret is. The secret to many of my high quality images are the filters that I use. One of the best filter brands that I use and highly recommend is Formatt-Hitech. Why is this? While there are many filter brands out there, they are either extremely expensive, easy to scratch, or leave color casts. Formatt-Hitech's filters are priced reasonably and do not leave color casts with any of their filters, including their inexpensive resin filters. The best part is that most of their filters are glass. While glass filters can shatter if not properly cared for, they are not easy to scratch and do not bend, unlike resin filters. Formatt-Hitech's filters help me to get the shot right in my camera without the need for lengthy and time consuming post-processing. Formatt-Hitech's Firecrest Ultra filters feature a special coating that provides great neutral density using rare earth metals.
