Reaching up and away

Reaching up and away

I have trees on the brain lately. They have dominated my photographic subject matter since before Christmas when I first ventured out into the cold night air with a friend and my holga. I’m less interested now in shooting at night and long exposures, but trees continue to hold my fascination. I’m trying to develop it into a series, and possibly a show. I’m unsure of this focus though, and wonder if it’s an interesting enough subject to build a full scale artshow around…

  1. I’d say go for the tree focus. the challenge to you as an artist is to create interesting enough photos of trees that it could be a full scale artshow. I’d say you’re well on your way with some of the photos that you’ve posted lately. If they were blown up, i’m sure they’d be even better. I find trees, espeically ones out here, a challenge to photograph because they are often so big, but it’s hard to get the scale of them to come across in a photo. and just think, as spring comes, the trees are only going to get more and more beautiful… depending on your timing I bet series of tree shots as the seasons pass would make a very interesting show… there’s lots of ideas out there – I’ll look forward to seeing it as the work unfolds.

  2. Thanks Simone. The tree theme is a definate now, and I will continue to shoot new images until I build the right combo of shots for my show. I’m doing heat transfer work with this too. I hope you can make it to the opening. 😉
