I am a mature student on the second year of an A.S. photography course. This blog has been created for my personal study course work, but I intend to continue adding features in the future.
I am fascinated by the often overlooked patterns, textures and colours (formal elements ) of everyday objects both organic and mass produced. I will be taking a brief look at the history of abstract macro photography and will then examine the work and techniques of one of my favourite fine art macro photographers, Sharon Johnstone. I hope to include an interview with her, providing information about her inspirations and the techniques she uses to take her abstract macro photographs of oil and water, ( See http://sjfinearts.com ).
I have followed Sharon’s techniques to take a series of my own oil and water macro photographs. Both sets of photographs (before and after examination of techniques ) will be featured and constructive comments are welcomed.
