It shouldn’t be this hard…choosing an image for Monochrome Madness. And still, some weeks I find it almost impossible.
This week I put all my money on drama. The original image was taken on a sunny mid-day, very bright, full of sunlight. So, I went the opposite direction. I forgo the details, sharpness, clarity…everything…just to create this dark, Gothic image.
When I look at other images, I see people putting so much effort in improving, making something better, creating a visual spectacle. I am just trying to create…nothing more, nothing less. Half the time I don’t even know where I’m going, I just push the corners of my little box, stretch my imagination…hoping I will lend on my feet. I never see my images as finished, they are all half-way there, suspended in air. All I can hope is I will learn something new.
