One of the reasons for belonging to the aGathering group was to share and talk about our process of working. I’ve recently been able to spend time with the most southern gentleman in our group and he was keen to see how I made my images. Most of my colleagues in the group fondly refer to my work as ” Pauline’s blurry sh** ” – a term of endearment that inspires me to continue working in this way just to annoy them. I’m not sure that I was able to elucidate my respected southern colleague as to how I do what I do but I thought I could share with you some of the stages I go through when I want to play in my sandpit and create an image. This series of images shows the raw starting file and a couple of “plays” that came out of it.
