How do you actually work out ‘in the field’ when you”’re shooting?
-see something you think would make a great picture, then work the subject with different approaches?
-have a feeling, and try to capture it on film (sensor) from your surroundings?
-see a subject that provokes a feeling, and try to capture that?
Do you think that you can put across a feeling in your images? I’m not talking about meaning here, like making a statement about society and the landscape or something, I just mean an atmosphere. What is it that could contribute to provoking a particular feeling on viewing the image, besides the subject – this goes back to thinking about style I suppose.
If you limit your style using particular elements of the craft like composition, scale, colour/mono, contrast, are you limiting your ability to project a particular feeling onto each image?
It’s like watching a third series of ‘Lost’ – they answer your questions with more questions. It’s just plain evil…
