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.
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.
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.
What do you think?
I’ll agree, the colour version has more appeal for me. I think it’s because the colour gives more contrast and gives something to focus on.
