I was walking along the strand looking for a nice landscape shot and just looked down to notice this. I was taken with the waves of sand and the lone shell fragment.
Clicking the shutter in the first stage in a process of producing a print like this. The image will be worked on in post production to bring out the emotion in the photograph. I try and create a mood which is communicated with the viewer.
For those interested in the technical issues, I print all images myself on to mold made paper from Hannemeulhe. The company was founded in 1584 in Germany so they know a thing or two about paper!
I use Epson Ultrachrome inks which are archival quality. Expected life before any fading is 100 years under UV glass
For information on my ink and paper combination see:
Paper is the most important element in a print and I have spent many years printing on different papers. I now print exclusively on Hannemeuhle "William Turner" mould made fine art textured paper 310 gsm.
