Nature photography and impressionism

/Nature photography and impressionism
  • Pastel hues during sunset

Have been experimenting a bit with the camera. Given that I have zero background in arts, and am somewhat of a philistine regarding non-nature/wildlife stuff, I had to do some serious reading. Also looked at the works of renowned painters and photographers.

Theory is ok, but takes practice to get things right in camera. And one needs to be in the right frame of mind to visualize.

Taking small steps now, and slowly getting the hang of it. Wish I had been in the Himalayas (or New Hampshire or Aspen) a couple of months back, would have got lovely and varied autumn hues.

This is not everyone’s cup of tea – some folks don’t get it, and some don’t like it. I would have said ‘meh’ a few years back, but tastes change. Expect more of such photos from now on.

P.S. An interesting quote by Henri Cartier-Bresson: “Sharpness is a bourgeois concept”

Blue and white. Three herons.
