Ok - so I'm learning how to take a photograph with a narrative.
This guy is fascinated by clocks and loves his chickens. He is also in the autumn of his years.
I left the opening to the chicken shed in the image because it acts as an entrance to the under world ( death). The clocks are there because he is fascinated by clocks and has less time to live than he has already had.
The chickens - he loves chickens. The image is taken in the chicken shack in his garden.
He's looking out of the frame at something in the distance - who knows what?
i can see that the sky behind his hat is a bit of a distraction as is the over exposure on his knees - not sure what to do about this without upsetting the rest of the image.
Did i achieve an image with a narrative?
Are the mistakes too much of a distraction?
In terms of composition does it matter that he is so far to the right of the image and looking out of the frame?
Thanks for looking.
