Writing about my photography is something I have done for some time.
It is a way of me making sense of what I have been doing and what I am seeing with my own work. In recent years my personal writing has been just that. I have kept much of it in my journals only sharing snippets on Instagram and other social media.
Late 2019 I wanted to start sharing more and doing so on a more regular basis. My old website was sorely in need of a makeover so by revamping it and launching the blog that is now attached I think it will be a better fit. They are both a work in progress, but I have made significant changes already. I am hoping this blog offers me more control than the one I had years ago on Blogger. My plan is to gradually build a collection of articles and resources to share.
So this first post is just a little introduction with a few images sprinkled throughout.
The cover image titled Georgia’s Rose, is a bit of fun I had creating a soft palette from a deep red rose that my brother in law gave me. I’m a great fan of Georgia O’Keefe’s art and am often motivated to play with an edit and try to develop some of her sensuous lines. I’m not sure this was successful as an homage to the brilliant Georgia O’Keefe but it is an image I really like. In the edit I actually converted it to a high key black and white image and then blended it in Photoshop with the colour and moved the petals around so there were some small eliptical shapes throughout.
