Coastal photography provides an excellent source for exploring the concept of inter-conection. Here divisions and boundaries constantly appear to be changing, sea and sand often appear one as does the sky and sea, frequently merging so as to almost lose any dividing horizon line. Through using long exposures, and Neutral Density filters in capturing my images I have tried to enhance this feeling of oneness. Additionally I intensionally created images with lots of grain, this again helped to convey an overall sense of merging and connection. The grain also had a important role in reflecting my emotional response to the landscape, often emotions are not entirely clear or easily identified, and I wanted this to come through in my images.
