I think I agree with JT, I have difficulty even defining art and really chafe when I hear people talking about 'fine art' as if other art is somehow coarse or less in some way. A lot of what I shoot isn't art at all but I put the same, maybe even more care into shooting it. When I want to put a feeling or expression in an image, that's when I think of it as art.
On the other hand, I think the concept of servile art could well describe how I live. I put feeling into everything I do, I'm unable to do a job 'just good enough to get by'. I have to put my mark on what I do as if to say, this who I am, this is what I care about.
When I'm shooting, or doing anything else for that matter, I'm never thinking about making art... I'm just doing what the spirit moves me to do. Bottom line is, I do everything for the fun of it, even if it isn't fun, I still approach it that way and give the same effort I would if I enjoyed it.
I gotta shoot some more pretty girl shots... need some new stuff to post.
