Perhaps the steepest learning curve in photography is learning to see as the camera sees.

I’m still in search of the elusive ‘style’, just when I think I have it I ‘discover’ a new idea or perspective and off I go again doubting and wondering. I currently am looking at two books on the soul of photography,  ‘Photographically Speaking, (a deeper look at creating stronger images)  by David duChemin, and Shooting with Soul by Alessandra Cave. Both of them look at how to communicate your vision through your photographs, I am finding this concept fascinating and of course this ties up beautifully with Kim’s BeStill52 class….

 

Here are my random five shots showing I hope that it’s less about style and more about heart……

 

 

My take on one of Kim’s prompts…

Practising focus and depth of field with the Nikon still struggling…

I like this one, using Kim’s preset ‘breeze’ and ‘simple’ texture…Just when I think that I’m not ‘getting’ the soft look Lightroom proves me wrong…..

And I love the deep and rich as well.  I  love the colours and the sharp almost alien look of this cornflower seedpod.

Finally a few weeks ago Taunton had a mini festival and I took a series of photos of the Punch and Judy Man he was a very willing subject..

I think I’m just going to go with the flow and enjoy the process and the creativity….

Have a wonderful July 4th my U.S. friends……
