I like to use my own images as headers for each blog post and in searching for one for my last blog I was reminded of an image that was on the shortlist for inclusion in my Final Major Project for the MA Photography but didn’t make the final sixteen.

Reeds 1 – Alison Price, 2019

This was, in fact one of my favourite images but my tutor was very clear that she did not think it should be included.  Although I did not really get to the bottom of why, I thought maybe it was because it had rather a different feel and tonal range than the rest of my images.  It is one of my multiple exposure images and I feel it gets to the heart of the Loch and also gives a glimpse of the ephemeral hiddenness.  Not only does it show what is on the surface of the water but it also provides a sense of that which lies beneath.  I have to agree with my tutor that it did not necessarily sit easily with the rest of the panel.  However, it did feature in my Exhibition as a large colour image and featured on the poster.

An Crubh Exhibition – Alison Price, October 2019

It is unusual for me to say this, but I do prefer the colour version because I feel it has more depth and the colours give a greater sense of that.
