Shooting in Solitude

This Challenge is special for me because Solitude is my best friend and we meet up daily and I do not want any distractions whatsoever when doing photography because I see something and I stop, look at it, check it out from angles, check shadows, lighting and even search what this subject will tell me, and Solitude understands me and its presence only helps. It is so beautiful to find a subject and interpretate what I see without people walking by and staring at me while I am photographing a manhole cover..

Also I am learning from a photographer Jean-René Dufort, who thinks outside the box, and does street photography and has a special way of seeing things and when we see his titles we think...''huh, yeah, not bad at all''.

If you want to see what I see, come shoot with me, after it is done naturally

Interesting subject Jim. I do my best work while alone, solitary. I think these two fit this challenge. The first one I have shared before. It is my favorite spot on Assateague Island - my solitary tree. It was torn down earlier this summer by tourists that have not respect for the island and what it means to the locals.

Like the reflections there, and yes Assateague at sunrise has a lot going on

One of my favorite things about underwater photography is that I'm alone with my thoughts. I look for an interesting subject, compose the shot, and fire. Sometimes I get lucky and move on, but for the most part, I adjust camera setting and strobe power/positions to make the shot more interesting. I can't do that and pay attention to another diver.

Yesterday was an exception. I bought Merry a Nikon 8-15mm lens for her Birthday. We went to a site that is home to Giant Sea Bass, wreckfish that can grow to seven feet long and well over 500 pounds. Visibility was so bad that if they were there, we couldn't see them. I spent the dive watching Merry look for subjects. Without her knowing, I was actually looking to get a shot of her.

I was shooting with a 15mm fisheye lens, which makes the visibility look much better than it actually was. I was less than two feet away when I shot the green photo. The blue water shot was from another dive at the same site as a comparison. It's so much easier to shoot wide angle in clear water!

THUMBS UP all the way around Max. You cannot get much more solitary than in water. Congratulations on your project.....

Bridges are special, bob. If you have been to Québec, the old Québec Bridge can be shot from below and wandering around there can bring out some great surprises, autumn sunsets, fog etc.

I totally get where you are coming from, Jim. Even when I'm out with
family and friends walking around, I'll see something that catches my
eye and I'll stop, change perspective, get down on the ground trying
to really "see" the shot...my wife and close friends accept that.

Came across a good quote on solitude: "There is a world of difference between solitude and loneliness, though the two terms are often used interchangeably. Solitude is a state of being alone without being lonely and can lead to self-awareness."
