This photo actually had some interesting color in it but upon experimentation in development it seemed more potent an image without the moss 🙂
I was holding a 35lb 16 month old in my left arm and shooting one handed. This striking composition caught my attention as I walked up the stairs.
Out of several photos in the evening this ended up being my favorite. And I almost didn’t shoot it. Goes to show a) having your camera with you and b) taking the shot if your gut says do it are both worth while actions.
Hand held with relatively tight depth of field means the bars in the foreground are a little out of focus. For me this ads depth and complexity to the image. In fact I had looked at this scene earlier and wasn’t that happy with what I saw until I stood back, which then brought those other bars into the shot.
Occlusions or additions? What do you think?
Up close and personal with my macro.
Some day’s you just don’t get to leave the house much. Our little toddler had a rough week being ill so we worked from home and spent allot of time in self imposed quarantine. This forced me to look closer, there is a whole new work out there, hidden in the small.
My home office was a mess of wires, it’s not normally. What a perfect opportunity for exploring their photographic qualities. This was about the seventh attempt at composition, and yes I did move the wires about a little bit. The color was distracting from the shapes so I removed it. Red sofa, blue, grey wires. Green and yellow jacks. This worked much better in B&W.
I’m a big fan of exploring the lines and shapes in the industrial. This is the ceiling above my desk.
Sticking in or out? I like how this image creates a 3D optical illusion.
In this new series I examine photographers themselves. Watch out photographers of the world, I’m out to capture you 🙂
Photography can be a tiring business, as this young woman has discovered.
Envision, prepare, observe, shoot… create. I really enjoyed the process of creating this photo. Some modest darkroom work to convey what I saw in the scene.
This is the view from my office and why I carry my camera with me every day. The foggy morning last week broke to a stunning low sunrise that sent shards of shattered light spilling through the metal and glass work of these hyper modern structures.
