Photographer Matthew Brandt shows us that it’s good to break the rules sometimes. Developing film is a tricky thing to master, with so many precise steps to follow. But Brandt shrugs at the idea of following the guidelines to a T, preferring shifting colors and imperfections to the expected crisp lines of a staged photograph. Pictured above is a shot taken from Brandt’s series of  “color photographs that are soaked in the specific lake or reservoir water that they represent.” Though his approach is deliberate, hints of landscape mixed with abstract swirls and specks give Brandt’s photos an almost accidental feel. It makes us wanna say “we could totally do that!" Followed by “Ok, maybe not.”
