The Only Subject Youll Ever Need. Ever
Article from Chase Jarvis Blog
Marcin Sobas has a body of work that speaks to a photography maxim: Nature is still the best subject. The endless cycle of birth, growth, death and rebirth; the arc of the sun and the moon in a 24 hour period; the play of clouds and fog as both filter and subject — your window could look out at a tree on a hill and you could find a million different ways to capture it in a photograph over the course of a year.
A hobbyist, Sobas benefits from his sense of timing and his appreciation for Nature as Subject. His misty hillsides and above-the-cloud compositions are quintessential landscape shots: just the right light, just the right fog, just the right angle.
I popped a few questions the artist’s way to learn a little more about his approach.
Why the fog and the green as subjects?
MS: I have always been fascinated by fog. Mists are mysterious and you never know what will emerge from them. On green fields, the light is discovering their form at a right angle. Some places then look magical.
Do you do commercial work? If not, do you want to?
MS: At the moment,Itreat it as my hobby.I really respect commercial work and I’m opento any suggestions and any cooperation.
What is your process?
MS: It all depends on the air and weather conditions. The foundation is goodlight and then the process is easy.
Can you dive into the kind of gear do you use?
MS: My main equipment is Telelens and sometimes a wide lens. I’m working on a Canon.
What’s your favorite location you’ve shot at thus far?
MS: From the placesthatI have visited, my favorite is Tuscany in Italy. But for the moment I have not visited too many places.
Anything else you’d like to add?
MS: The whole worldis beautiful andamazing. I would love tovisit both America and my dream is New Zealand.
