Expert insight What to include
Philip says… With gardens it’s more about what you leave out than what you put in. Marilyn looked like a colourful person to me, so we spent some time thinking about ways to work with colour. Being selective with our colour palette meant we could remove anything unnecessary from the frame. I encouraged Marilyn to work quite slowly – it didn’t matter if she ended up with just four photos from the whole day; I’d rather she did it right than rushed around and got nothing. We weren’t photographing a fast car rally, but a fixed garden.
