Catherine and Nolan Anderson contacted me last Fall to shoot some portraits for their CD to be released in 2013 and their new website. Catherine is also an accomplished piano instructor and another portrait from the shoot was used on her website.

Playing / Figuring out the subconscious

Posted in Creative Process, Creativity, photography with tags , , , , , , , on November 5, 2010 by Tim McGuire Images

I was playing with some images I shot last winter of Urban Trees in downtown Seattle. I sometimes take pictures because I’m attracted to something that I’m not sure what it is I’m attracted to. I call it my subconscious minds eye.

I had passed by and wanted to photograph these trees in front of the old Federal buildings for a while.  So I went out to photograph them one rainy day. Even while I made the pictures I couldn’t figure out what I really liked about the subject and setting. It just seemed kind of boring.

Probably at least six months later I revisited the images and started playing with them trying to make them interesting to me, still wondering why I had lugged my cameras and tripod out in the rain one dreary Seattle day and shot them.  After cropping and playing for a while I eventually added this super contrasty effect to the images brings out what I think attracted my minds eye. Without it the pictures are pretty boring to me but I like them with these high contrast effects which better define the lines of the trees and the buildings. I think it’s just the contrast in styles of line, the “organic” natural shapes on top of the man made, that makes it interesting to me. What do you think?
