I recently came across these photographs that I took about 2 years ago, I am still quite pleased with them so I thought I would share them with you.
I was doing a little gentle gardening when I came across the remains of a Mahonia bush that I had dug out because it had grown very misshapen. The roots caught my attention due to their lovely sinuous shapes and the texture of the bark.
After some cleaning up and trimming I took them into my ‘studio’ and set about trying to make something artistic of them. I decided to use a very short depth of focus to produce a more dramatic effect and after several attempts I came up with these.
What a great boon digital photography is when you can see your results almost instantly on a large screen and make any desired corrections right away.
