Stiched Composite - Polar Coodinate Manipulation
So what happens when you take a landscape piece and fold it end-to-end?
The reds of the evening were certainly dominating during this session. Using the camera to drag colors across the image may not be an acceptable photography practice by many, but then, I never could have expressed the moment in this way.
As important as it is to some to record the moment exactly as it happened is the level which I insist I record the emotion of the event, with all the drama and pomp in my mind’s eye. If there is red in a small part of the sky, why shouldn’t I make it a part of the entire work? The color employs its impact whether in 40% of the sky, or in 90%. It is a compositional/structural element all artists decide to employ…or not.
