I've always been fascinated by the beautiful shapes of plants and trees.
Sometimes simple, sometimes complex, but always difficult to reproduce by human hand.
With this fascination came the wish to
photograph trees that stood alone to emphasize the shape.
Then this idea struck me as the most convenient solution. Not only can I create the graphical shape of the tree against the white backdrop, but I can also show the tree in its natural surroundings without it being a distraction.
