I’ll be posting some images in this and future posts that are what I consider “unplugged”. What I mean by that is these are images that do not rely on compositing, photo shop trickery or cg elements. Of course I have nothing against that approach since the bulk of my work is created in this manner, but it is nice every now and then to get back to basics. These images are from a library of images I have created during my travels. I tend to carry a camera with me wherever I go especially when visiting somewhere new. I try to find interesting compositions, abstracts, a moment in time or a subtle interaction of people on the street. They are straight forward photos with only modifications to hue/sat, levels and curves one might do while processing the raw image . I hope you enjoy!
This first image was taken at the Majorelle Garden in Marrakech, Moracco. The reflection of the garden on the water as well as the texture and color from the bottom of the pond co-mingle to provide an almost impressionist backdrop for the fish. The random, accidental composition really appealed to me which is why I selected this image from the others I took.
