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 #097 - Life in Space

I rarely pre-plan photographs. Instead, I like to insert myself into a scenario that I think is likely to produce interesting images. Once there, I then let go and just see what happens.

I had seen these trees a few days before and was fascinated by the way they seem to reach almost as a guesture. I drove down to that location in order to photograph them, and was unexpectedly rewarded with a beautiful moon. I set up my tripod, composed the images, and just at the moment I released the shutter, two birds flew through the frame. The happy accident. Sometimes the best way to pursue photography is just to be there.
