At the end of my latest shooting session (click here for Tett House ICM 02), I stumbled upon creating some images of the bright sun through a heavily wooded area. When I used a slow shutter speed on my camera and a neutral density filter on my lens, I could move my camera every which way during the exposure to create these wonderful swirls of light dancing through the dark trees. The clouds even offered another interesting element and when I experimented with double exposures and blending techniques, the textures and colours that came out in these images were not something I had seen before in my work. Even the monochrome images look like something out of a horror movie.
I have named this series “Skyfire” and hope to continue to make imagery in this style.
