Take a Seat
When showing off this picture, Tara asked me; “Why did you leave the chair in the picture?” To which I responded; “Because it was there.”
I don’t want to have to alter a photo’s composition to make it better. I think that my style is that of taking a picture of something, exactly the way it is, and trying to bring about it’s best qualities. The other day I jotted down a few notes when I was trying to describe to myself, what I thought makes up an interesting composition. The photos I really like tend to have a few things in common. Having a defined color scheme tends to be near the top of my list. If you’ve seen much HDR, you’ve seen photos that try and span too much at one time. I think that’s why I chose the black and white version of the Woodward Barn photo seen here. Also, I think a photo should have a bit of mystery, and by that I mean that if a photo leaves something to the imagination, something more to think about, it will stick with you.
