About this Group

All About LightThe defining aspects of art celebrated in this group is how light tells the story.

Artists have many tools and techniques at their disposal to express themselves in images. subject matter, color, shape, pattern and texture, compositional relationship, all are ways to build the message. One tool that is of paramount value is the use of light. Highlights, shadows, shading, contrast, even the use of light sources themselves, are preeminent tools of expression. Illumination and shading to build and define the three-dimensional forms in art, the chiaroscuro technique, has been a long tradition. The technique is not exclusive to painting or photography but is applicable in a wide range of media and expressions.

Share your works, done in any media, that emphasize the use of light.

► Each image must emphasize the use of illumination or light - that is our theme
► No text overlays - Text captures the attention away from the image
► No framing or excessive vignetting - The image must be able to stand on its own
► Acceptance into All About Light is at the discretion of the gallery curator.

Discussions are very much encouraged. When participating in discussion threads all members must abide by the FAA forum rules
