Light can transform 'beautiful' to 'sublime'
Light usually captures my attention first
Complimentary natural light is the most forgiving, especially during Autumn and Winter when it is golden and at its softest. Magic happens usually during the hour after sunrise, or before sunset, when light seeps through foliage or when softened by thin white cloud.
Pure & Natural Photography
Whilst I love to create images with an ethereal aesthetic, after-all gardens & flowers are poetic, when it comes to lifelike colours and minimal image distortion, analogue-film film produces natural, true-to-life colours and smooth grain, so I do not enhance, nor alter my photography, and fixed focal length portrait lenses minimise distortion, therefore providing consistency of look throughout my work.
AS NATURAL AS NATURE
The poetry of photography
Notes of light, sounds, aromas, a breeze as it animates, colour, shape & form influence my interpretation and storytelling. Being present and taking my time is what makes capturing inspiring gardens & flowers so gratifying. I savour every moment, just as one does over a fine wine.
