“View From The Edge” – in retrospect #5

“View From The Edge” – in retrospect #5

To wrap it up – this is the last part of this little series about printing, presentation and exhibition. There is not much more to add to what has been said in the 4 previous posts, so I just packed some remaining images in here. Some are smaller in size, but by clicking on them they will enlarge.

A short description:
It starts with some extreme reflections, shot on calm mornings in full sunlight, preferably when the trees are already lit by the sun, but the water below is not. Next are reflections as well, but printed from the colour negative – another little technique to – you guessed it – alter reality. Next are two panels of reeds, original and reflection, divided and as one, colour and B&W. I especially like the diffused, soft look in the coloured reeds by shooting wide open. Then we have an example of seeing the sky by looking down , called ‘Openings’ – the sky peeking through a lead in spring-ice and in a puddle – a play with reality, yet without any special techniques. Then there are burned trees – from the “Skeletons” series and a close look at the textures created by fire. And lastly, spring-time ice sheets drifting by.  If you are not told, you might think looking at the sky with bands of clouds. Well … you are looking at the sky, but not up there…

Again – please check out the complete series HERE and many related topics under ‘Topics – Prev. Posts’ in the side bar HERE.
