A change is as good as a rest, so they say. I am leaving video behind at least for the time being and as I look to get back with my beloved stills camera, I have been trying to work in ways I do not normally.
Out came the 60mm Macro lens and on a perfect morning in England with dew sitting on the foliage I experimented. I have shot macro before but it is not really something that a do much of, neither is the nature shot.
I was lucky also to find a couple of bugs (this now seems to be what my kids now call them), crawling around.
I have also been looking at ways to present images better than just straight edges. A part of me is reluctant as I do feel that in many ways these presentation methods are employed too often to make mediocre images seem better than they are. This also goes for some of the post production so many photographers seem to be using now.
The search was down to looking for ways I could present some of my Afghan work in a book or for an exhibition. So I looked for a few choices and have so far settled on the ‘Photoframe’ software that integrates with my Adobe software so well. I am using it on a trial basis and at this stage I think it’s important to make visual mistakes, so there are a couple of frames that I don’t think work, or I don’t like.
I hope you like the images.
