Mukti revealed,Fine Art Photographyis a little bit difficult to develop in Indonesia. Many new photographers in the name of fine art just want to exploit women. However, most of their mindset is naked women. It doesn't have to be the erotic side of women. We can also give a fine art landscape photos and human interest photos.

As a language, the effectiveness of the delivery of the message must be the main thought of the photographer and must be able to choose the type and style of language that matches the message that is brought and effective for the audience.
