Creative Freedom and Constraints as Drivers

Pushing boundaries seems to be a common theme in both art and science. The boundaries of what can be said or shown, or known – are generally assumed to be external constraints. However, when artists self-impose limits on the tools and techniques utilized to create, they gain much more than they exclude.

These first few images from a larger set were created on a Winter day in the fading afternoon light. They seem to encompass the mood I wanted to capture in part due to the simple process I forced myself to use.

No cropping, no changing focal lengths, no extensive processing. Just what I put in the frame and the choice of ‘film’.

I’ll try additional uploads to the VSCO GRID as I explore a bit more through their iOS app. So far, I really like the simplicity and quality of it.
