One of the things I love to do with my camera is take abstract pan photos. I usually do vertical shots but this time I thought I would try doing some horizontal. The early evening light created a nice contrast with the glow of moving vehicles against a dark sky.
With an artistic vision, I am always experimenting trying different techniques as I go along on my photographic adventure. Should I have just one and concentrate on that? I don’t know at this point. I think I see the world through many layers and view certain scenes in different ways. I am trying to find my strengths while also working on my true passion.
I recently saw a video of Sam Abell, “The Life of a Photograph”, where he was describing his photographic technique. Simply put, he finds the scene first and waits for something to happen. I thought that was such an interesting concept. I am now on the lookout for these kinds of backdrops, ones that I might want to return to. Some of his photo’s looked like Hopper paintings to me and I love Hopper. That’s a direction I want to take my photography. As the weather becomes warmer, this will make standing in one place more conducive.
Forgive if I am still waffling… please don’t fault me as I am loving the journey.
