Seeing

Leave a comment

One way of getting the creative juices flowing and being creative is changing how you see things. You can get closer or further away, look with one eye closed, tilt your head, turn the object upside down (or yourself), look during a different time of day, notice what the object reminds you of, notice any scents, texture, angles, weight, temperature of the object.

When I photograph I do all of those ways of seeing taking multiple shots from different angles, heights, spend and light adjustments. The photo below (click to enlarge) I took after walking through the woods and I sat down to rest. I was noticing the way the light was being blocked by the leaves and creating a spot light effect. Later when I got home and was comparing multiple shots of the same image I noticed that when I converted a shot to black and white it was nearly the same as the color shot. Wisps of color.
