Today's post has a surreal look. Photographed quite locally on the South
Downs during a recent family trek this is a silk scarf my daughter was
playing with, dropping it over herself.
Obviously I have a few typical family photo album snaps from this moment,
but seeing how the scarf occasionally formed mountain-like shapes, her
hands and head underneath forming ridges and valleys, I couldn't help
wanting to see if I could catch something a little more artistic. With
that scenic panorama behind I thought there was a chance a cool photo
might come from it.
I liked the textures of the silk against sky with its interesting clouds,
and by composing centrally I'm hoping the scarf becomes more dominant
and stronger and consequently feels even more odd / out of place / not
natural to the scene. I'm hoping that despite it being front and center
it isn't immediately obvious that the 'mountain' is a silk scarf, revealing
its true self only when one gives the image more than just a glance...
a little reward for spending a little time with the photo.
If this image is the first of mine you have seen, or you are generally
new to my work, please know I'm always keen to make new contacts and
push my photography to wider horizons. If you like what you see, say
If you are able to help bring my photography to a larger audience, then
lets talk! I'd be glad to hear from you!
