DAVID USILL
LOOKING UP

Looking above our normal view.  Often what is above one’s eyeline is ignored for creating images. My ceiling pictures are made by placing my camera in a purpose-built cradle on the floor. Squaring up these architectural details create these abstract and often very symmetrical patterns. By using very long exposures and small apertures, I capture as much detail as I can. Digital photography allows for images to be reviewed and checked for layout and colour balance. For outside images I want to record the way we actually see. Receding perspective lines, standing underneath a subject, looking up to the sky. 

Always carrying a camera leads to my next premise “Everything is worth photographing”.
