Can an NFT be a photo?

It's up to you to decide. The NFT universe is ideal if you want to produce one-of-a-kind digital art. The value of a work depends on the rarity of the file and the artist's reputation, regardless of the medium. Creating a community that appreciates the artist and knows how to value their work is possibly the most difficult element of the process. At the very least, this is the current state of the NFT market. In the future, I wouldn't be shocked if stock picture agencies began to use this technology in some capacity. However, the real question is: why do NFTs and Photographers work very well?

  • The vast majority of images taken nowadays are either digital or have been scanned and converted to digital form.
  • Because most photography is 2D, or flat, displays can easily recreate it.
  • There is a noticeable improvement in the quality of screens and tools that display images online, allowing you to see a true representation of the work rather than relying on a print in order to appreciate the quality of a picture.
  • The phrase "editions" in photography is analogous to "tokenization" in blockchain art. It might be open or restricted. When it comes to rarity, there are two types: physical and digital. As a result, NFTs provide photographers the freedom to choose the edition of their work they desire, while also letting the buyer know exactly what editions are available. It's possible to track down the source of the information.
  • Photography is a well-known art genre. As of 2020, the globe had 3.5 Billion smartphones, and nearly everyone snaps photos with them.
  • There are a plethora of digital images on social media platforms. As a result, viewing images on screens is nothing new for most people.
