Art of the Image #10 – images that evoke emotion. I would love to get your feedback on what emotions these photographs bring out in you and what story I am trying to tell with each photograph. Thank you so much for your feedback and time!
Not one for capturing people and expressions outside of family events so this was challenging for me earlier in this course. Late summer is when I started seeing a bit of change in my approach. The more I felt about a place the better odds I had of capturing the essence of what was there. Of course not every image is like this but it seems to help.
The forgotten play ground. A bit of bitter sweet. Teeter Totters are long gone as are the children that once put them in motion.
The rock vista. How strange, the rock are like the hills trees. The child in me is ready to explore and climb
The gas station. I have sooo many question and I really wanted a soda! I love my “stumble up ons”.
The ICM cello. This was not my first pick. I passed it by. I had a mentor help me get started with ICM. Of course 300ish images later it came down to the defining moment of Why the cello? Yes, yes, yes it is a beautiful curvy instrument with a rich tone. BUT WHY she/mentor wanted to know. I missed my daughters concerts, closing my eyes and feeling the rhythm of the notes. Watching the sway and pull of the bow across the strings. That’s it! That is what I was looking for in those 300 or so images. If not I was informed that one shoot is usually 400 images. I did 3 shoot of 100ish images😳…. With a fresh perspective I went back through my images and thankfully there was this one that felt as if it evoked the concert experience I was missing.
Peaceful summer evening . The land was light up with the warm light, evening critters were out for one last frolic. The deer had passed through, bunnies were about, cows were mooing in the distance, every now and then the breeze would make it’s pass through and ruffle the drying grass.
I hope something elicits an emotion for you even if it is just curiosity.
