Inspiration: When taking photographs, for me, inspiration sometimes comes from photos by photographers that I become fascinated with but most of the time an idea comes into my head or I see something that will never happen again which I want to capture. My inspiration for the photograph of the figure bending backwards beside a pool, came from the photo 'Body Electric' in a magazine by Annie Leibovitz, whose work I admire. To make my photograph original there was a reflection on the water, unlike the original where only the figure had been photographed. The photograph of the sheep in Snowdonia was one I caught whilst trekking for my Duke of Edinburgh Silver Award so there was no inspiration for this one. The final photograph of the ballet shoes came into my head almost immediately when, at my sister's ballet I saw a light shaft shining through the windows onto the floor. I wanted the only light in the frame to shine on something interesting. So, I changed the aperture so only a small proportion on light entered my camera and the surrounding area was in darkness and waited for something interesting to take the spotlight.
Title: A Sheep in Snowdonia
Description: The photograph of the sheep in Snowdonia shows a sheep beside a signpost standing on a wall in the middle of Snowdonia. The fact that the sheep is looking straight into the camera and seems to be alone in the middle of nowhere I find interesting since before I had only ever seen sheep together. The positioning of the sheep next to the signpost which states 'NO FISHING' gives the impression that is perhaps what the sheep is thinking.
