framing suggestion:
Fisherman's shed near Walberswick, Suffolk. This picture was shot in infrared to render strong
detail in the sky and to lighten the marsh grasses. There's no reason not to break the rules of
composition occasionally, but a habit I seem to have developed is for framing subjects in the
middle, rather than on the 'Golden Mean' or by 'thirds'. It possibly stems from a beautiful
Russian/Georgian film by Shengelaya I saw years ago about the naïve painter Pirosmani. With
a cast of locals and in a mostly empty Georgian landscape, what little action there was took
place centre-framed and in a theatrical, almost formal style. I liked that, and it has probably
subconsciously influenced my photography ever since. I would love to see the film again, but
so few outstanding films from world cinema are screened these days, like the Czech 'Closely
Observed Trains', like Fellini's 'Roma', like films by Bergman, Jancso, Bresson, Ray, Bunuel,
Wajda, Renais, Ozu ... I don't know what happens to these masterpieces - perhaps prints
fade too much, or are lost, or there are preventative copyright issues, actors' residuals
contracts, etc. But Hollywood just seems to go on forever: another repeat of 'Independence
Day', anyone?
