"Art is literacy of the heart"
- Elliot Eisner
‘Great photography is so much about the literacy of emotions.’ said Len
Then as Hugh says… ‘Hold that thought”…
It is really worth thinking about it…
Been watching too many Youtube videos of camera reviews… Hugh Brownstone is who I am quoting, from Three Blind Men and an Elephant, who has a lot to say about cameras and not much else.
I wonder if this photograph of Ivy is facebook safe? I won’t find out either… Laughing now…
I so love this sort of lighting. I wonder if it has much to do with my sense of control. I like lighting to be predictable so I can take my time with each shot. To get these you need to be standing in exactly the right spot. The model and you. Lots of fine adjustments.
Am so looking forward to the shoot with Nicole Rayner on Easter Monday.
