Light paintings - My hat is back home now
Toying with my little digital Canon – an unlikely thing for such a hard-boiled fan of darkroom tan as myself - I was once more assured that there is no such thing as a dull day, if you only press the shutter. Initial endeavours to take any motivating pictures were rather off-putting and nothing more than postcard-like snaps but then, while on a short trip to Istanbul, it all started to happen. Close examination of some of quite random pictures taken there revealed the devil hid in detail – all those mundane and dull snaps, when blown-up and stripped of disrupting colour, suddenly gave away their secret side – which I call ‘Light caught off-guard’. It is my hope that with practice even more astonishing results can be obtained. Here they are for you to take a look at and evaluate.
