White Water by Simon Harsent

Yesterday I was browsing Behance, as I always do for collecting some inspirations around my “following circles”. Then, I saw this “White Water” project by Simon Harsent – which is an amazing professional posting very nice projects over his Behance profile.

It’s a combination of a few things that I love the most, like water, black and white, splash, photography, neutral tones and the sea.

Since the brand new start of Pinterest, I used to have a board called “BLAK power”. I just love the black intensity in photography, it’s like coffee (I do have a board about this, also): the most solid, black and without any interference, the better.
I could apply this analysis into this photography sessions. We tend to watch the sea in our typical way. We tend to expect the sea (even more in Brazil) with all of those colors, the sun, the horizon and everything else which (IMHO) excludes the intensity, the wisdom and the magic. That’s what the sea is trying to give us: waves, power, patience.

In a reflection about this combination; I like to think that the natural water, this natural (monochrome) photography and the sobriety of the movements delivers a very important concept for me: focus. The white (or black) intensity is the focus greatness.
