Those of us who are photographers have a fairly good understanding of what perception means in the photographic world, we use it in our work daily. it is defined in the dictionary as:
This is kind of a continuation of my last entry, so hope you enjoy!
One of the interesting things about photography is learning to look at the "intimate landscapes". Sometimes when I am out shooting, I can easily get caught up - especially during Spring - at all the beauty that Mother Nature surrounds us and shares with us. It's easy to get overwhelmed by all of the beauty, especially here in the Pacific Northwest where we have wonderful flowers and landscapes.
So, i take a deep breath and see if I can isolate just one aspect or one piece of all this wonder. That's what I did with this flower. There were a ton of them all around, but this one was in part sun and part shadow for just a moment, and I was lucky enough to catch it. Intimate landscapes can be almost anything - flowers, trees, textures, water. I have a personal love for these because they are like capturing a moment in time in small detail.
Touch the world around you, look at all the beauty that we have, and live each moment to the fullest. Namaste.
Spring can be a great and varied theme for photographers, and sometimes it's easy to get caught up in all those colors and textures! Remember, focus, focus, focus - and I don't mean only the camera! Look at the scene that attracts you, then stop and ask what it is that is catching your attention - color, texture, light? Then, work with that element to highlight it keeping it the key part of the image. You will find that you can get some great shots by eliminating extraneous things that take the viewer away from the subject matter. And remember, the most important thing - HAVE FUN!
For those of you who attended my recent exhibit, and are interested in the images on display, I will be selling these separately from the ones you can purchase on the website. The images at the exhibit are higher quality giclees, printed on and framed with archival materials.
