Risk versus Reward

The ocean is fleeting, it is ephemeral, and it never repeats itself. Fascinated by the ocean since the very beginning, Ray Collins finds it equally challenging and rewarding to shoot amidst the salty water.

“You can’t ask Mother Nature for a reshoot in the studio. My favourite thing is the 1000th of a second, when I capture a moment that will never happen again.”

’Take A Moment’

As the title suggests, what this issue encourages is a moment’s pause, whenever possible, before launching into whatever’s next in our hectic schedule.

Until recently, our analog lives had ‘downtime’ built-in to every dynamic, so with no means to broadcast our immediate reaction to the world, we’d have space to consider and reflect. Today’s instant digital connection gives voice to our every reaction and whim if we want. The result is alot of contagious noise out there, and not all of it good.

So in its humble way, this issue seeks to re-create a bit of that analog space. In our random cherrypick of literature, references to music and the arts – Take A Moment is waving a flag about the good stuff that gives us a rich inner life. The more we’re fortified with the good stuff, the greater our reserves of assurance, awareness and perspective to be patient and compassionate towards those with whom we disagree, without going round the twist ourselves.

Capture The Wind

Photos which capture the effects of the wind. Wind can range from being an irritant to being destructive, but wind can also produce beautifully dramatic photographs. The wind can be a very difficult and challenging effect to capture well, but I would love to see your best images which capture the wind.

Congratulations on 1st place in the ‘Capture The Wind’ competition. This ticks all the boxes, bang on brief, fantastic composition, beautiful light, great colour tones and a beautiful sense of environmental energy which has all been pulled together to create a beautiful image. Well done and keep up the great work!
