give it your best shot OUT AND ABOUT

Isobelle Pover


give it your best shot A collection of images shot mostly with a little pocket digital. It’s a good habit to carry a camera as they’re small and light. You never know when you’re going to see a fleeting scene you want to capture. It’s fun and productive, over time you can see your collection grow and recall what you were doing at the time. Have fun, Issy


why I love photography Arriving at an unfamiliar place you have new ‘eyes’ to look around and capture new images. This is a great opportunity to practice and I like to get outside and see it all. I set out with my favourite camera, a little Panasonic Lumix with a great little Leica lens and the more obvious Nikon, on my shoulder. I like to trail blaze away, enjoying what I see around me. It gives me real pleasure in every aspect of the photographic process. Technically, I would like to improve. Years of experience in Graphic design has influenced the way I ‘see’, crop and shoot images. I paint on canvas and the contact of raw materials gives me an appreciation for the vibrancy and nuances of colours. I have always studied natural forms, living, dead, very dead; fossils, rock formations and new growth too. The forms seen in nature are for us to discover and this has its effect on how we see the world and all that’s in it. This small collection of work displays the images I like the most for some reason each may resonate with a memory. This is a beginning and I look for improvements along the way.
