Short and Wide
Short and wide -- an apt description for me, for sure, but tonight I'm musing on image size, not body image.
Have you ever watched the Landscape as Muse show? This CBC production features 30-minute profiles on various artists; as I was perusing the lineup on the Documentary Channel, the episode profiling photographer Thaddeus Holownia caught my eye. What also caught my eye, as I was watching, was his choice of large-format equipment and the size of his photographs: 8 inches high and 20 inches wide.
So the show ended and I immediately fired up Photoshop to try an 8x20 crop. Just yesterday I had been messing about with a lily photograph so I decided it would be subject to my newest experiment. Results, above. Yes, I had a little texture fun as well.
My next experiment with this size will be, I think, some black-and-white architectural shots. Thank you, Mr. Holownia, for the inspiration.
