Point of View
When there are thirty photographers milling about searching for that perfect shot, what can you do to stand out from the crowd? Sometimes I just stop and look around. Who cares if you look like a goof just standing there while everyone else is clicking away. What I try to do is, change My focus. I often start out looking for the “great classic landscape”, but sometimes it feels like “been there done that”. You need to look at your location with fresh eyes. At the “Bonus” Monday Sunrise photo shoot with the Snap Photo Seminars Samantha Chrysanthou gave us an assignment for practice. Sam suggested we look for triangles, and for more interest, try and find asymmetric triangles to include in our images. The above was one of my first attempts. It was basically one big upside down triangle. A nice image, technically, but fairly static.
So I looked for an image that was more dynamic. Below, there are triangles from both top corners, the water forms a triangle, the log starts another triangle, and each tree is it’s own triangle. Assignment accomplished, I think?
