“Let It Be”
I do like a simple life.
I also like to shoot subjects that look so simple and ordinary in nature.
I also like to shoot the light as it is whenever I can.
I like to “let it be”.
The grass within this area of the marsh was on the border area of some shade and darkened clouds.
The waters were washed in a somewhat hazy but bright light.
I added a polarizer which reduced some of the glare within those waters.
But by adding a polarizer, I also noticed that the surrounding waters showed a bit more and actually reduced the intriguing lines of the small waves.
I removed the polarizer, and immediately viewed something a bit different.
Vertical lines of grass in a color mix of green and black.
Horizontal patterns within the waves.
A wash of light which surrounds and gives accent to those very small waves.
I liked what I was viewing, … and decided to “let it be”.
I created from what I was actually seeing.
I wonder how many would have left the polarizer on in order to reduce some of the glare, which would please other more experienced photographers and their opinions first?
In my opinion, … many photographers listen to other individuals in forums or blogs far more often than they should, ignoring what already exists deep within themselves!
