Photography is the art of showing more than you see & telling, documenting and capturing stories. Who knows me for a long time, knows that I am a great lover of country music, both of the older songs and the newer ones.
We had our first photo shooting in Australia and since then we are friends. This time we went to Joshua Tree National Park at the other end of the world. The light in the morning or evening hour was completely sufficient.
Only with my cameras Leica SL 2 and Leica M Monochrome and without any brighteners or speed cameras we went to Joshua Tree National Park. The famous desert park with geological wonders and typical Joshua palm lilies is very popular with campers, hikers, filmers and photographers.
Clare is, to describe her nature, very fairylike & sensitive and devoted to music. These are my clues for a great shoot! To be ready is a lot, to wait is even more, but to recognize and use the right moment is everything.
A good photo is a shot that you look at for more than a second to see and read from it. Living photography creates something new, it never destroys. It proclaims human dignity and merges with the location, in our case with the unique Joshua Trees and especially photogenic rock formations.
Working with Clare is so much different than working with models, she shows herself as natural as she is! Vibrant photography is already positive in her early days, she sings the praises of life.
In any case, people often care too much about the photographic technique and too little about seeing and the right moment. Photography is the art of taking good pictures despite all the technology. My wife and I are already looking forward to our next meeting with Clare.
See you soon,
