When I am out taking photos, I usually have certain images in my head. During this adventure out, I really wanted to create something dramatic in black and white.
Setup the tripod, compose, shoot. Wait for the light and clouds to shift. Wait more. Shoot. Repeat.
It can simultaneously be exhilarating and exciting, as well as stressful. Being that I was using a tripod on gelatinous sand that is usually under 2-3 feet of water, the ground is unstable. Many shots were ruined either by the tripod sinking slowly, or by me shifting my weight and thus shifting a leg of the tripod.
At times, I can see beauty in decay. And with a single overexposed shot, I saw the emptiness in the sky. The light. With another shot, this one underexposed, I saw the details in decay and death. It was with these two photos that I combined and created this shot.
I hope I was able to convey this through my work here. Does this bring out any emotions or thoughts for you? Leave me feedback, I’d love to hear about it.
