I have seen more than one article recently, on minimalism in Photography. It is an interesting approach to photography and like many genres has its place and includes brilliant pieces of art. If you haven’t tried it, give it a go, it can’t hurt.

I have been fortunate to have seen many of Henry Moore’s sculptures as well as the work of Giacometti, another sculptor. These photographs remind me of their work or put another way the post processing was influenced by their styles.

 

 


Modern Art or Nature?

There is a body of modern art that escapes my ability to make sense of. Moreover when it comes to the kind of randomness Jackson Pollack was famous for, my view is that nature does it better.

These photographs are all about contrast and I used various types of contrast, sharpening and other effects to get what you see here. The results work for me. Like many other areas of photography, the application of contrast is something to be studied and practiced.

I like to think, before I take a photograph, about how it will turn out after I have shot and processed it. That permits me to focus on what I want in the frame and what my camera needs to capture (settings that need to be considered etc.) . This kind of photo makes that easier than when photographing a bird. I find it improves my photography.

From my days working with professional photographers in my teens I realized what made a pro a pro was their ability to describe what the photograph would look like before they took it and guarantee the results.

Envisioning the final result is an important step in my work. Though I will admit that it sometimes does not work quite the way I hoped.

I went to this fair where local craftsmen, antique shops etc. show and sell their goods. Normally these events provide  significant opportunity for great shots. But this year I was hard pressed to see something I had not seen the year before. I took very few shots, of which these two may be the best.
