Clutter and Noise

Grande landscapes and internals of flowers, what is it that creates the image. For me it is removing what does not belong. For some of my images this means sitting and waiting for the moment and at other times it’s removing what does not need to be there. I have spent a lot of time just sitting and composing the image. Once I have the idea I set out to capture it. I can spend a fair bit of time looking composing in the view finder, looking again, moving the camera, refocusing, checking again and only when I am certain it is what I want I will push the shutter button.
