Bill Brandt "The rule of thirds in this photograph makes the image look very interesting. All three sections of the image show a great deal of texture, highlighted by the black and white effect." Absolutely.
Matthew Brandt has created unexpected and dramatic running of coloured ink by submerging printed photographs of water in the lakes or waterways that they represent. This is a great example of how creative photography techniques can (and should) be driven by the subject or theme that is explored.
