Please keep walking and sending pics. Love your eye for contrast and beauty.
Thanks, Walking is going ok but I’m 30 days behind with editing the photos at the moment!
Your comment intrigues me. I naively thought that the photographer’s skill is first and foremost knowing where to stand and point the camera. But now that you mention it, of course, you must edit. Would love to know how much of what we see is what you saw, and how much of it is edited. It speaks to the whole idea of art in representing something/someone to an audience that will experience it vicariously, through the artist/photographer.
Both are important like the difference between writing and performing music. I try and create an image that conveys what I felt – I don’t believe an objective optical reality in photography exists as photographs, unlike reality have a frame. Sometimes the photographs convey nothing of what I saw even if the moment was memorable, dramatic or physically difficult to get to and are then rejected in the editing cull. It’s this dispassionate separation of an effective image from a memorable moment that’s central to a photographers work.
A good article – I love the photo mosaic of square pics – can I ask how you do it?
Thanks, This layout was done by the magazine designer but when I do mosaics of square pictures I use Abobe Indesign
Fantastic article! Congrats! Looking forward to your next posts. Springtime should be a relief!
Thank you. It certainly is!
I heard your interview on Radio Tees as I drove south to work along the A19, and was amazed by the sunrise coming up over the Cleveland Hills. I am interested to hear what you thought of the coast from the Tees through Redcar onto Whitby, along the Cleveland Way, and looking forward to seeing your photographs. Keep on walking an amazing challenge and feat. Good luck and enjoy this beautiful island
Hi Stephen, it was an amazing and short-lived sunrise that morning if I remember correctly. I enjoyed South Gare with the Steelworks and Fishing huts and thought the Cleveland Way was fanatstic. You can see what I got up to on that section on twitter https://twitter.com/QuintinLake
