Sleat Sandwich
A small coloured rock section at Ord, usually under water and covered with seaweed, hence the saturated colours in the image. Shot on film negative, using an extension tube to get close enough to remove any sense of scale and perspective, using good natural light but not sunshine, which would reflect back from the wet rock, losing colour strength.

Insider Dealing
A wild foxglove on croftland, shot with a macro lens and looking upwards into the flower. Shot with the sun hiding from the lens directly behind the flower head, so the markings inside the flower gain as much light as possible from an outside source, enhancing their natural colour. Removing the outside of the petal structure further emphasises an abstract image.
