"Strings" a picture is worth a thousand notes

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
