Small Boats on Black Water

Published on March 24th, 2015

Confidence is an amazingly powerful thing. I remember visualising this shot as I walked back and forth to assess that final angle and distance to make it happen. Yet some days the confidence just isn’t there. Today was a little like that. That inner voice was crushing the vision and I had to put the camera away. Some days are diamond and some days are Congo coltan.

Morris Dancers at the Wooden Boat Festival

Published on March 21st, 2015

It’s not my first go at capturing Morris Dancers, but this photograph is along the way to showing you what I love about watching them. Movement. Excitement. History. There’s an encompassing passion in Morris Dancing that speaks to my ancestral Anglo heritage. This photograph is extremely grainy. However, I’ve come to realise this was almost certainly the heat of the day – high 30s Celcius. We spent six hours and that shot roll remained in my pocket all that time and a car ride home. Still, for what it’s worth I’m not unhappy with the photograph. Sharpness can go shag itself. I’m all about what the picture speaks to me as a person.
