I was given an opportunity today to speak at the Light & Shadow Gallery at Leura. The theme was Reflections on Fine Art Photography. More particularly, I was asked to describe how I arrive at the images which are multi layered from the current series Elemental Fantasy.
Len Metcalf, an excellent Blue Mountains photographer, specializing in sepia toned nature images (but also including nudes) gave his insights on his photographic processes. He spoke about his choice of square format for his images and his preference for warm tones. A fine example ihangs the wall behind me. Otherwise he gave his personal experience of how his own psychology plays an important part in his photographic life.
A big thank you goes to Peter White for organising the afternoon and giving us both the chance to share our work.
