New approaches to landscape and nature photography
I’ve recently become the proud owner of a canon 60d. I took my new toy for a spin on a recent holiday to Wells-next-the-Sea, where I changed my mode of transport almost entirely to biking.
I’m an avid cyclist and I usually stumble upon my shots when on two wheels. This way, I’m able to jump off my bike and place myself entirely in the scene. The far reaching Norfolk landscape and mostly uninhabited locations allows me to do this undisturbed.
“Sharpness is a bourgeois concept”
– Henri Cartier Bresson
I’m not the type of photographer who sets up a tripod patiently waiting for something to happen in front of me; I have too much energy to stay still. I trust my eyes to spot and intriguing, beautifully composed scene my camera is there to document it.
When I’m outdoors, I don’t want to capture scale or as far as the eye can see, I like to immerse myself in my environment, whether that’s crouching in a corn field or presenting the landscape from unusual perspectives.
Anyway, let me know what you think in the comments below.
