Description This is possibly the most breathtaking scene i have ever witnessed. The Doubtful Sounds of New Zealand. It was calm yet it somehow wasn't. The cloud cover was so low it gave a sense of mystery about the place, yet at the same time it was beautiful.
Ash Davies, Melbourne Member Since January 2009 Artist Statement Photography to me has always been an expression, not only of my mood and ideas, but also of the diverse feelings of my surroundings. I strive to capture beautiful photographs which have also captured the true essence of a scene.
Undoubtedly, I am a perfectionist. I strive for everything to be exactly right. Whilst it can be annoying at times, I always have a great appreciation for my end result.
To me, the most important aspect is the lighting and vibrance of the image. They portray the most significant qualities of a scene. I try to get these right on the initial shot.
Editing to me isn't photography, its simply being good with a computer. Whilst I understand it can make a photo better, I feel it can take away the character of a shot and ruin its purity.
So please enjoy browsing my collection, knowing that they have been taken with a great appreciation of the art, fueled by a lively passion.
