This spring, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson will host the new TV series called Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey. It’s an update of the influential 1980 PBS series Cosmos: A Personal Journey, hosted by Carl Sagan.
Thanks for taking the time out for us today Elizabeth. Let us begin by asking about your year-long photo project. Please talk us through your process and what goes on in your mind when you head out the door each day?
On each new day during my 365 project, I had no idea what I would do for that day’s photo, so I would embark on a walk / hike with my dogs until I’d find a location that stood out to me as a good place to take a photo. Sometimes I’d be on these walks and hikes for up to 5 hours before coming back with a shot.
Whenever I found a new location, I’d set up the camera and often take tons of photos from all different angles, and try different poses and different places, until I came out with a favourite. None of my photoshoots have ever been very planned, I just enjoyed playing with the camera and experimenting each day until I had a photo I loved.
