Twillingate-Day 16-June 16,2021

The devil, they say, is in the details…

Anyone who has been following me as a photographer will know that I shoot a variety of subjects in a variety of ways. Traditional Newfoundland scenes, some wildlife, portraits, events, astro…

Just a wide range of things because I am a firm believer that in order to improve you MUST do a little of everything and open yourself up to new experiences and challenges.

That being said, I have ALWAYS enjoyed drilling into the detail of a subject, looking for small “ants eye views” of interesting and provoking images. This work produces photos that are almost abstracted, more about texture, light play, shape and form than the larger object. This is the work I am going to really drill into over the coming weeks. Detail detail detail..

Thats not to say there won’t be larger vistas, photos of churches, seascapes, root cellars, boats etc will still be a major part of my day to day, but for each of these larger subjects I will drill in, look for those textures and forms, try to tease the narrative out without giving away the whole plot.

Today I played with that concept a little and revisited the boat in Back Harbour pictured below…

The Boat

As you can see, a beautiful, powerful image but when we step in a little closer there are secrets to tease out…

Isn’t it just incredible to see what you can tease out of a single subject? The interest in texture and form, color and light? I’m excited to get out and find more of these unique vistas and share them with you.

In addition I am playing a little more with video. In much the same way I am looking for smaller areas of interest in the larger scope of things, the same applies to my video work. As evidenced in the last two videos I produced. Both are rough, but the give an indication of the kind of work, the mood and feel, that I would really like to dive into with my video work as well.

Very exciting to be on this journey, I appreciate you all joining along and I do hope you are enjoying the blogs and the work.

Until tomorrow.

Thanks again for joining me on this journey!

Don’t forget, if you love the work, think about purchasing a piece or buying a coffee I have lots of klicks to cover this summer, and your support was never more appreciated.
