Taking And Making
These are all phone camera photos from a much older iPhone than my new one. All three from the same day of recently baled round bales.
Top photo is the insurance photo, the snapshot. The photo I took.
The two below are photos I made. Each one is an exploration of the scene, the capabilities of the iPhone, and my desire to find something better than the snapshot, something more significant in exposition. A photo evoking some sense of nostalgia, the emotional aura of farming, the loss of farmland to suburbia, the colors of fall, colors that psychologists say are emotionally healthy although they signify the end of more pleasant times, colors that are calming.
Never stop at the snapshot. Always look for something that exposes the contradiction and the acceptance.
