Years ago when I had the idea of making images for people to use as desktops/ wallpapers I was faced with the idea that a desktop image was special in that it had to be something at least somewhat minimal in order to fit well for what it was being used for. A good desktop, in my opinion, is one that leaves enough breathing room and negative space to be functional as well as give the viewer something nice, inspiring, fun, or interesting to look at and when all the windows are closed and the computer is resting, unused, the screen becomes my canvas. When I started making images for desktops I experimented with adding design elements/ vector objects to add something to the photography but was never really all that happy with the result. This lead me to take a different approach to taking photos to begin with. It lead me to search for compositions and subjects that left plenty of space for things to lay over the image in the end and to this day I feel it impacted my approach to photography in general in a pretty significant way.
