A year and a half ago I went to the Vancouver Aquarium. At places like this, you line up along the railing and just about every pair of hands is holding on to a camera. In those circumstances, with a very restricted level of access and lacking the ability to move around all of the photos tend to come out looking the same. Using these restricted circumstances as a challenge to come up with a different way of expressing myself photographically I decided to focus on shape and form rather than just getting caught up with getting exactly the same photo that hundreds of other people where getting of these magnificent creatures. The beautiful curves of the Beluga whale’s back and the contrast of it’s pearlescent white skin with the dark water produces a wonderful flowing form that echoes the liquid curve that the whale pushes around itself. Much more interesting than a picture of the Beluga pushing it’s nose up to eat a fish out of the trainer’s hand.
