I am always amazed at how long it takes me to think things over and ‘see’ the bleeding obvious! I suppose I should be used to it by now but it still takes me by surprise. So when looking back through some of my favourite images and trying to put adjectives to them that I could then use in future images, why was I so surprised to find – isolation, light, sparseness or minimalism, detail or close up, vastness and ICM?
The hibiscus flower from yesterday’s post ended up being photographed in the small crystal clear shore break in front of my burre. It took me many, many images to get close to what I was trying for but now I’ve studied them more I need to go back and try again 🙂 It might be a few years before I do but I’ve got a better idea of how it will work. Lots of the better shots below to show you what I was trying to get before the hibiscus flower became too damaged. This idea was sparked by a cover image Marie Kova created for the TEDX talks in Fiji this year and one of our group on the Fiji Road Trip – see previous posts.
