I'm not sure what you lads are taking up there in Lancaster, but here in Amsterdam I've just polished off an espresso....
I've never tried slow shutter twist n'roll. But it sounds amazing. I do know what you mean though. I've taken several pics where I've deliberately shot for just some small detail in a fish (fins of zebra lion fish are some of may favourite) because, for me, they capture the colour and beauty of the underwater world. For me they are pieces of art. I'm sure twist n'roll can be the same.
Are you/we enhancing natural beauty or distorting it? Who cares. Do you like what you have achieved? Does it give you pleasure? Isn't that what it's all about: creating something which brings you - and hopefully others - joy?
Totally agree on the art v sales thought. I can sell a woman-diver-on-a-wreck shot. But the incredible colours in a fin? Not so much. Maybe in the days of Athena Arts I might have..... So those are for me. Those are the ones that make me smile. But then I do smile when I see the woman-diver image sell.
Life eh? Grab an espresso, Adam. Or is one man's espresso another man's Nescafe?
