Working with Calgary musician Tyler W., I helped him to create some imagery for his studio. He plays a variety of instruments but his passion lies with the sound created by "strings". I took these photo's in a specific way that would tell the story of the instrument. The Cello displaying is beautiful curves in such a perfect balanced form. It's scroll a form on its own deserved its own attention. I tried to make my focus on the prominent parts that a musician may touch and interact with. This may all sound funny to you but it's all for a purpose. By capturing images with "feel" through its shape texture and color I was able to evoke certain emotions through its viewer. With a different perspective, such as the musicians hands on the neck of his classical guitar, I was able to show the bond and relationship a musician shares with his instruments. The final result: music through imagery.
