Your Story: Rachael B.

In our Your Story feature, we ask our members about what inspires their photography, the processes they use to make images, and the stories behind their pictures.

Q. What’s the story behind this photo?

A. I like to create art with my camera, and I particularly enjoy macro and abstract photography. I am fascinated with the macro world that is hidden from the human eyes. My goal is to reveal what is hidden.

Q. How was this image made?

A. With the majority of my water drop photography, I like to shoot them in the dark with various lights set up at different angles. Whatever I want to reflect onto the water drop, I place behind the drops upside down. For this photo, the metal spring was taped on the end of a pencil, and the pencil was then taped onto the side of a bottle to ensure it didn’t move. Then I just placed the drops onto the spring.

Q. Why do you take pictures?

A. I take pictures because I want to show the connection for the image I am creating. Sometimes it’s also an extension of my artwork. I find photography very enjoyable. One of my goals for the future is to try portrait photography.

Q. What do you want to say with your images?

A. I want to tell stories with my images – especially about the environment and climate change. If I cannot visit the location to take the photographs, then I try to use my creative photography to tell the story. For example, in the Tale of Two Wolves story, I couldn’t photograph an actual wolf, so I got creative to tell the story of my image.
