Getting on for nearly a year ago I did a post called “Allowing perception to mature” that was very well received, see it at andybeelfrps.wordpress.com/2013/10/27/allowing-perception-to-mature/
Here is another example of forgetting an interesting picture taken in an art gallery in The Hague last autumn.
The point about leaving pictures for a while (months or years) to mature before they are edited and processed helps you see them for what they really are good, bad or indifferent.
I was working on pictures I took yesterday evening well in to last night and felt by midnight that I could not see the wood for the trees because I was too close to the capture. Perception has not had time to mature. I will come back to them in a few months time and have a much better idea of the good, bad and indifferent amongst the 150 shots.
This post was called “The art of repetition” because of the repeated picture frames receding out of focus. They also repeat the idea of the main motif. Again there is a strong element of negative space in the picture – a repeating theme of mine.
As my photographic career has progressed more and more I take pictures “about” something not “of” the subject matter. I am photographer not a mobile camera operator!
A big hello to all the new followers of my blog this week.
