I decide to use multiple exposure to give depth and luminosity to the images and also to provide a glimpse of life below the surface. I am confident in making the adjustments between the shots and soon begin to lose myself in my art and the images I can see in the water. As I work the skies above get darker which means that I am not able to achieve the fast shutter speed I need to freeze the movement of the reeds in the second shot.
As I retrace my steps, there are many small lambs playing in the burn and I notice that the colours of Blaven in the distance are more spring like – fresh greens and yellows rather than the golden and orange hues of autumn and winter.
I reflect on the images I have taken, and I realise that some are rather cluttered and although the reflections on the water are dynamic and interesting, they do not stand out.
As I move along the edge of the loch the reeds become more sparse and the images, become more effective – as the movements and shapes of the water emerge.
I am pleased with these images and feel that I have captured the depth, luminosity and the natural patterns and shape of Loch Cill Chriosd. Not only that but I feel that I am now becoming more accomplished at multiple exposure work and am excited about the many different combinations of images still to explore and experiment with.
