I have been researching Rosita McKenzie and Laura Latcham and was fascinated by the “unconvenional view of the world around us” and how Rosita doesn’t hold the camera up to her face – there’s no point, so the result is she gives a different perspective.
For further research I decided to take my camera to the Botanic Gardens around 3pm on Sunday, it was starting to get dark. I tried to take photos holding the camera at my waist level – this took a lot of getting used to – I had photos of sky and ground and very few trees!
As it got darker I used the flash, it began to feel like I was in a computer game, and I was literally shooting objects – I could picture my final results by looking at the area highlighted by the flash.
I’d been looking into different eye problems and wanted to try and capture this with my camera so I set the makros and shot close up – I really like the results but I’m not sure what they can be used for!
Myopia – short sightedness
Cataracts – blurred round the edges as though glasses are scratched. If cloudy in more than one place may get double vision
Glaucoma – look for a long time before you see – longterm causes tunnel vision
Petinis Pigmentosa – dificult to see in bright or dim light
Diabetic Retinopathy – looking through glasses with paint on them
Macular Degeneration – straight lines look wavy
