I had a few ideas, prior to my first shoot, but nothing felt strong enough so I decided to get out and try it anyway. You never really know how an image will turn out until you’ve taken it and reviewed it, so thats what I did.
My first idea came from a worship song. ‘Shoulders’ by For King & Country starts with the following quote:
“I look up to the mountains, does my strength come from the mountains?
No. My strength comes from God, who made heaven and earth,
and the mountains”.
I wanted to capture this within an image but also wanted to go beyond taking a landscape image of mountains. I had been looked at ways to ‘explode’ images for another project
