“Everything you can imagine is real.”
― Pablo Picasso
I have found that exciting changes have been happening with my approach to photography. When I go out to photograph, I am no longer looking for the single image to capture which will be processed and posted when I get home. Instead,
I have been approaching my photography more as a collector of elements that might later be put together to create something else.
As an example, I recently went with dear friends to photograph at Old Car City, located in White, Georgia. Old Car City is a photographer’s paradise.
I did find scenes that intrigued me on their own.
But mostly, I enjoyed gathering images with the intent of making something else.
Here I took a rusty scene from one of the cars to use as a frame for my friend who was photographing nearby.
I spent much of the day simply shooting wonderful textures which I hope to use someday in a finished piece. This was my favorite texture from the day.
My favorite images from the trip are two composite images I created. One of the images I have submitted to the G+Scavenger Hunt. I will not be able to share that one until all of the hunt images have been revealed. It made me excited because I shot all of the pieces for the composite at Old Car City with the thought in mind of what I would do with them.
The composite I am sharing below is something that I thought of as I was looking through my images from Old Car City.
I took the image of the windshield while at Old Car City. The skull, which I had taken somewhere else, came to mind and I felt added a great deal to create a story.
I am thoroughly enjoying the changes that are happening with both my process and my products. It is all quite an adventure.
