Matthew Brandt has created unexpected and dramatic running of coloured ink by submerging printed photographs of water in the lakes or waterways that they represent. This is a great example of how creative photography techniques can (and should) be driven by the subject or theme that is explored.
Sketchbooks are a place to gather, research, investigate and explore ideas. Inspired by John Coplans, the sketchbook page above contains a series of beautiful photographs investigating human skin, texture and form. These include different viewpoints, exploration of shadows and lighting conditions. If you are worrying that your sketchbook is not stunning or exciting enough, remember that it is the quality of your work that matters. Seek first to make quality art.
