Many say ‘don’t take a photo create a photo’
The camera limitations made me to have to create photos. The use of pictureTalk, what do you want to say with your pictures, creates photos.
The photography becomes a daily venture, a daily learning of picturesque. Your point of view altering every time you look.
The path took me back to the past, my early childhood years there were i learned to ice-skate. The roads were now so small compare to my childhood vision but the trees had grown. Only when you stop, only when you slow down you start to see what once was.
people always smile when my pictures are created as i lay close to the water surface and only the small camera can be there with me. The professional cameras will drop and drown, giving a very frustrated image. How can you place a trypote in the water close enough to the water surface. Than how can you take the moving leaf while standing solid on 3 legs.
So the photos are created with a simple camera which i can hold very still in my hand just above the water surface. The camera can be moved easy flowing with the floating leaf, perfect you would say.
Yep , but, the quality of the photo is such that it can’t be printed more than A3 and even than you see the pixels appear. SO, no photo program like photoshop or others will be able to overcome this by creating pixels, it can’t add on. The idea came to create even further a photo by using software, research shows some spectacle results of double exposure making one photo with several photos. OK That goes well over my head. Photoshop is a very complicated program which takes a long time learning but i have an old desktop publishing program with which i have created many leaflets, business cards, books and posters.
You can create layer over layer not giving the same effect as double exposure, still giving the possibility to create one photo with several photos and even better giving the possibility of collage.
The way to print on A3 without loosing any pixels. After lots of experimenting, the final cut has come. Using several photos i took while laying and standing there were i learned iceskating, perhaps the place where my love for nature started.
