If you’ve ever tried to photograph trees in the forest, you know that the finished photos usually don’t come out as perfectly as what you saw in your mind’s eye. Shadows and unruly branches can make a photo look like a cluttered mess, and you can’t see the forest for the trees, as the saying goes.
For this week’s post, I decided to have a bit of fun. Instead of capturing a realistic interpretation of the forest, I chose to capture an artistic one. After all, art isn’t necessarily about portraying what the eye sees; it’s about portraying a schema. Sometimes, a representation of what the mind thinks something should look like can be just as effective.
