Photography as an experiment

January 11, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

One afternoon I noticed a straggling cucumber in my garden despite it being the end of december.  I grabbed my camera with the goal of capturing just a few shots of it, but then, I began to notice some interesting patterns of light and shadow on the nearby fence.  So, what was initially a few grab shots turned into a 20 minute exploratory photo session.  I frequently find myself doing this type of photography.  It is fun because one has complete freedom to explore, discover, and create.  In this particular session, I was using my big DSLR.  But, any camera would do.  In fact, I sometimes use just my iPhone as a "sketchpad" to capture images of concepts or anything that strikes me in the moment.  And, sometimes, if I'm lucky, I can hit on something that resonates with me in a way that leads to a larger photography project.
