The Bigger Picture
I want to “see bigger.”
I know where my comfort zone is – seeing and capturing the details. And this search for the interesting in the small, in making the familiar extraordinary, is still a huge part of my photographic journey.
But I also want to take a step back, to seek out grandeur and infinite vistas. To train my eye to see the beauty in the whole pie and not just the slice.
I have a great fondness for my “pie-in-the-sky” series, as evidenced by the image below. But, for me, this is the “easy” shot – that triangle of silver cleaving the sapphire sky. I know how to “do” this shot.
But the image above is different. Stepping back, framing a larger piece of the whole, is uncomfortable. I don’t know what to do with all that “stuff” in my frame. How to arrange it in a pleasing way.
So this is me, widening my perspective, seeking a way to show you more.
And trusting that I have more to give.
