Sometimes I can envisage a final processed product, that is slightly different from the original captured image. The black and white, which I have worked with, has a certain surreal air to it because the balance between light and dark is accentuated.

There is a certain repetitive pattern in the subject flower though it is surrounded by a chaos of similar flowers in decay with much less distinguishable pattern. Put another way – fractals, patterns and a sort of natural entropy.

Getting that feeling of place and time in landscape photography is a gift. I am not sure if it’s best expressed in black and white or colour but I know a bucolic scene when I see one. I hope to do more landscapes next summer.

There are three things to note here:

  1. It’s great when animals give you a look
  2. Not all farms appreciate photographers
  3. In any group of animals, some will be more attentive than others

This is a view at the entrance to the nature reserve I frequent. In fact I have taken a lot of shots of birds from just this spot. The black and white has a bit of a sketch element to it, an effect I quite like here. Always nice to photograph a place you love.


Modern Perspectives (Two Photographs)

These were taken in the National Gallery of Canada, a magnificent building. The first is done with a dutch tilt. Like the rule of thirds it is one of many standards taught in some photography schools and highly rated in some photography clubs. I believe there is a time and a place for these techniques but they are infrequent. The second photograph tries a textured layered approach to what is a gallery and staircase. Another approach I would use sparingly.


Isolation and F Stops (Three photographs)

Narrow depth of field is a tool we use to isolate subjects (where the subject is in focus and the background is not due to a large aperture). It’s not always the widest aperture or smallest F Stop that works, often in colourful situations you can use opposing colours to isolate your subject.
