X. Rey (2009) L’echelle, retrieved from http://www.xavierrey.com/crbst_217.html
The time to explore long exposure photography through use of water was a long time coming, and responding to Xavier Rey’s L’echelle served as a great opportunity to plunge in to the deep end. This photo intrigued me, as I couldn’t make out what the wooden planks were from. Perhaps the remains of a bridge? What I’ve taken from L’echelle is a pathway; and so I’ve responded with my own path- where the waterfront is my place of standing, the water serves as my place of moving forward. I was very ecstatic at the result of this response as the contrasting colours really pop. For my final photo-shoot, the goal is to finalise my ideas and craft a series, but also to maintain the long shutter speed, depth of field, the colours and to capture ‘moments’.
