Inspiration – Colin Prior

Posted in Inspiration on 18 December 2010 by jepoma

I’ve recently stumbled upon a Photography Montly podcast interview of landscape photograper Colin Prior. Having listened to his interview, checked his web portfolios, and read about him in The World’s Top Photographers – Landscape by Terry Hope (RotoVision, 2005), I really find his approach to landscape photography and his work inspirational.

One of the distinctive features of Colin’s photography is the use of a Fujifilm 6x17cm camera. The 6×17 aspect ratio is so well suited to landscapes, that I have added it to my Lightroom 3 presets. This serves as a reminder to try aspect ratios other than 2×3.

Another distinctive features is colin’s predilection for dusk and dawn photography. The light at these moments is so unique and compelling !
