THE TAKING PHOTOGRAPHS - MY IMAGE CAPTURE

Renowned photographer Elliott Erwitt (French-born American advertising and documentary photographer) painted a simplistic impression of photography when he said…”photography is pretty simple stuff, you just react to what you see, and take many, many pictures…it is an art of observation… about finding something interesting in an ordinary place and has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”

I would certainly agree with the taking of many, many pictures element. For me, photography and the capturing of images revolves around appropriate answers to innumerable questions that generally begin with the 2 most essential:-

1. Is what I am seeing, or anticipate seeing and experiencing worth recording?

2. How best to record it?

Answers to the first question can occur spontaneously in a split second or over any length of time. If the answer to the second question is to capture it as a still photographic image then the serious questions and decision making really kicks in. My process goes something like this:-

•  what do I need ?  I am fortunate I do not need to pack the main crucial items….my eyes (plus vision enhancement aids)

•  an initial assessment of what I hope to see and capture

• that vital assessment then sets in motion equipment, conditions, accessibility etc. questions and decision making

•  capture of the many images, thankfully in digital formats.

Back at my computer a whole plethora of questions and decision making begins (referred to as work flow) that can be really time consuming but highly enjoyable.

So, for me, the capturing, processing and presentation of photographic images can be a lengthy, enjoyable, varied and very fulfilling undertaking.
