One of the benefits of this type of project is that it stretches my ability to see the things I see every day in a new and different way. As good photography is the strongest composition, anything that helps to make me try to observe more keenly and abstract the essence of my chosen subject matter is good for me.
I like the way the crop and lighting has excluded the ends of the instrament. The shot was deliberately defocussed to emphasis the shape. As a guitar player of very nearly 40 years standing I still find it’s the easiest and most difficult instrument to master. As is photography – anybody can take a picture, less of us can make pictures that gives the viewer a new or different understanding of the subject matter.
