An unreliable memoir

Back To Work

January
Given that I don’t like most of the photographs I take, those I do like fall into two categories: point, snap, get lucky, and setting out to construct an image with an objective (partially) in mind. This image is mostly the latter. I saw the weak sun shining through the trees and deliberately defocused in an attempt to get some bokeh. The bokeh was as elusive as ever, but then I got the idea of focusing on and emphasising the branch in the foreground. After that, I decided I liked the circular composition so this image survived the cut, mostly because it has the gloomy atmosphere I was trying for.
