- Throughout the forest, we're looking for patterns.…Repeating plants, or cracked mud,…or just falling leaves.…Anything, anything that creates a pattern…is interesting and we want to try…and take images of those and see what we can…bring out of those patterns.…Now, in order to do that, often you have to really…isolate it.…So we've switched back to the long lens.…I have my 70 to 300 back on…and this tree here, as do most of the trees,…is covered in incredible moss…and what I've noticed is…there's a pattern of a certain type of moss…that is a different color and is evenly spaced…throughout eight different colored moss.…
So essentially you have this repetition of yellow…coming out of brown and that's really interesting to me.…Now, in order to make an image,…we really have to experiment.…I don't know if this is gonna work,…but I love trying.…We're gonna approach it in two different ways.…The first thing we're gonna do is make sure it's…just the pattern.…It's just the brown and yellow evenly spaced out.…It creates an abstract nature.…
