Kokoro - Wandering Through a Photographic Life

Backstage Kokoro

A "behind-the-scenes" look at selected images in my Kokoro project —
Content, photographic notes, EXIF data, creative process, miscellaneous commentary, and original digital captures. And now with additional audio comments about selected images!

From Kokoro #088 - Waiting for the Fire

I tend to think of photography as something that shows detail, not just shapes. But in this image, I visualized the body-like shapes even before I pressed the shutter. There is a point of focus, but there is basically nothing in focus. I can't think of another photograph I've made like this. Maybe for that reason alone, I like the way this one turned out.
