WQW #35 September 14: Senses: Set your sights

Set your sights on the light. 
Capture it colourful and bright
Then when you are alone in the dark of the night, 
Free your vision and composite for your delight. 

“Your vision is not limited by what your eye can see, but by what your mind can imagine.”

Ellison Onizuka

This is why I enjoy composite editing.  It is an intriguing challenge to look beyond that which can be immediately seen.  There are editing skills to learn – or not!  This requires practice and patience – lots of patience. 

I like to take a couple of disconnected images and see what my imagination can make of them.

 And the second part of the equation?  IMAGINATION.

And so I did!

Tapping into colour

That was insightful – I can see I need more practice to achieve my vision but it was such fun and yes it did take most of the night!

WQWWC #33 Exploration – The expression of an impression

A picture is the expression of an impression.

If the beautiful were not in us, how would we ever recognize it?”

Ernst Haas

The expression of an impression
Is an obsession
I bring to each photo session 
where I can take possession
of my lifelong passion.

The expression of an impression
Is a compulsion
not a delusion.
It is where I learnt composition 
Through the excitement of exploration 
and a touch of preoccupation.

The expression of an impression
Take a bowl full of enthusiasm 
Flash in a sprinkle of infatuation
Focus with a whole lot of dedication
Layer  in an image of endless fascination
Blend all together in a bucket of creation 

Until it exposes more than my dreams
And becomes a beautiful expression of my own impressions

Every photo I take is a piece of my life that I will never get back,

but that I will be able to see again and again.”
