29 Dec Listening to the sea
I picked this shell up at the beach the other day. When I find objects like this, I’m looking for something in them that might make a good photo. It might be a simple line or colour that seems to reflect the landscape or an intricate pattern that I think will make an interesting image. Sometimes though, after I photograph it, I might find this doesn’t translate into anything interesting or exciting, and the images are slightly uninspiring. On the flip side, what will produce an excellent image is not always obvious at first sight and it’s not until I zoom in with my camera that I start to see the shapes, lines, patterns and colours that can make a great photo.
I love the sense of discovery that comes with each new item I bring into the studio and the excitement when something hidden reveals itself.
