Artistically I've always been drawn to the more extreme ends of the spectrum. As an example, I love both high key and low key photography. How did my love of high key develop? Just as it developed as a solution to a technical problem long ago. In my case, someone who is not a professional photographer (earning my primary income from photography), I am indoors at a day job regularly, and when I go on holiday, or for a relaxing hike, I most often don't have a choice regarding the light in which I make images. During some days in Africa, the light was extremely intense, such as in this image. And yet, it is so visually appealing to me. And what was once "non-traditional" has now become a stylistic choice that many photographers and artists actually intentionally seek to reproduce. And that is the way art often finds its way, meandering through exploration and attempting to solve issues that arise during the journey. Here, a cape buffalo walks about Ngorongoro, Tanzania.
