and the photographer’s vision.
The goal of abstract art is to communicate the intangible, that which eludes the photograph and normal seeing.
Hmmm, but does it?
I think that photography is often underestimated and I have found it to be an incredibly complex and fluid medium.
I believe that you could line up a dozen photographers in any setting and come away with a dozen distinctly different images and that to me is one of its inherently beautiful traits.
I don’t know what you might see when you look at this image but for me it encapsulates the beauty of one river from its garnet sands to the play of light on the rippling currents.
My style of shooting begins with a focus on the larger picture and from those images I begin to focus down on the elements that to me speak the loudest.
Sure, I could have photographed the river, as a river, but for me it’s more about the feeling. I like to really pare things down until you simply cannot remove another element.
What thoughts go into your images? When do you feel like you’ve captured the image?
