what catches your eye? 7 Years, 5 Months ago  
Not a photographer as such but we do take a lot of photographs for other artwork purposes- was wondering how and why you choose your subject matter? Are you like us and carry your camera everywhere to catch things on the fly or do you plan your shoots in advance, so you get the perfect light and so on? Do you edit them afterwards ?

Have attached a snap that amused us, of a face in a tree we used to pass walking when we stayed in France

Whenever I see something unique I usually take a picture of it. I also enjoy photographing animals and flowers. Many of my photos are macro works. I use my photos as reference to many of my drawings. That way my cat will sit still!

Here's one of my favorite flower photos:

Although I photograph in all sorts of weather, it has to be the light that attracts me.

I have taken pictures of the same trees over and over but if there is no light play then there is no excitement in the photograph. Having said that fog and mist can give some interesting results.

The subject can be anything for me from a conker to a mighty oak, I am told that I have the eye but I really have no idea what that means.

Blu, I can see that light fascinates you in your paintings, particularly those of the trees. The later ones you've done are showing more and more interesting light.

The thing that interests me most is how nature constructs things. I've become so obsessed that when I look at a flower or anything, all I can think about is what material would be best suited in mimmicing it's construction. For me the things that catch my eye the most are the tiny details of nature. I tend to walk with my head to the ground most of the time whilst others enjoy the views!

I am currently setting myself a photographic project each week, weather permitting! One week I chose negative space as a topic and I found that really interesting too. In the forest I stop and gaze upwards and look at the shapes in the canopy, sometimes I see hearts and faces.

Not to mention clouds that look like France LOL
