How’s it going?
You might consider this post a progress report.
Many photographers are attracted to lines and angles and shapes.
Our eyes seek out geometries.
I’m no expert, but I will say that finding the right “geometries” in pictures is one of the major ways you can change a photograph into something “more”.
Changing the placement of a camera by very small distances can have an amazing effect on what your image “does”, and what it looks like. I staggered around like a madman while trying to get triangles in my recent swallowtail-in-the-greenhouse photos.
I’m always looking for good yin and yang.
Here’s some angular and stony yanging and yining.
Sometimes it feels to me as if the spaces and geometries in the world are talking all the time.
They’re talking in a lot of different languages, most of which I don’t understand.
But I’m getting bits here and there.
So I keep listening to my pictures, trying to hear the conversations of their geometries.
I hear more than I used to, but comprehension isn’t always quick.
They say it’s the journey, not the destination.
Plenty of fun is being had.
Along the way.
