Thirds: in Three Different Directions.
Crikey – a non infrared post; my first in a while, I’ll admit. It feels a bit strange posting shots taken in colour too, seeing as B&W is my much preferred output but, here goes.
After summer and early autumn, I usually feel a little photographically-directionless for a while which, probably explains my silence over the past seven days – well, that, work and hospital appointments, however – it takes me a while to get into a different rhythm, so to speak. It’s almost as if I spend so much brain energy (over an almost six-month period) on IR shooting that I forget how to shoot anything else for a while. Of course, that’s not actually the case, I just have to adjust. Insosaying, I have been out, doing my best to see a little differently and, no pun intended, these few are just some of the fruits of my labours. Not wonderful, but – it’s a (re)start. From composition and tone, to colour and balance – I feel like I have to start over, whenever I switch format or output. Now, I don’t know if that makes any sense but, it’s my excuse and, I’m sticking to it.
Okay – so, also sticking to one particular rule, that of thirds, here are a few frames composed vertically, diagonally and horizontally – just to make a point. See? I haven’t forgotten everything. Here, I’m shooting with an entirely new camera setup – one not familiar to me, so, more on that another time. (I’m not so happy with frame two but, I like the shot so, it’s here to remind me to pull my socks up!)
Enjoy, and I hope you have a great weekend ahead!
