  1. A beautiful still life, modern-style, with that classic, raking light. So many details, all warranting attention, and it’s clear you know that. 🙂

    • Thank you, Lynn. I can’t say I “know” much when I’m taking photographs. It’s all by feel. Or really, by turn-on. Like: Oo! Hoses. Red hoses. Blue glass chards. Make composition. Shoot. Chimp. Adjust exposure. Shoot. Chimp. Adjust exposure. Shoot. Chimp. Adjust exposure. OK. What’s next? Later, seeing the photos in download, I might say, “Well, that worked, didn’t it. Maybe it worked because of such and such.” Or “Well, that didn’t work, did it. Maybe if I had done such and such it would have.” Or just “nope.” To flatter myself I might say that I work intuitively, but in truth it’s probably closer to laziness.

      • All by feel here, too, for sure. And too often I may not even check and redo a photo. But let’s call it an intuitive process. Labeling it laziness sounds suspiciously like a value judgement created by our culture’s emphasis on logic, planning, etc. (not to mention the masculine as opposed to the feminine). OK, I’m off the soapbox now.

        • Oh, yeah; sometimes I don’t check either. And regret it later. Or I’ll redo it a bazillion times and then just quit before getting it right, thinking “that’s enough.” Hard to call that intuition, but it’s not quite laziness, either.
