Today was Day 1 of the Hudson River Photography Workshops. What fun!
One of the topics we discussed was creative seeing and creative photographing.
Here is just one example. Left photo: super boring. Middle photo: kinda boring. Right photo: now that's more like it!
We simply combined the elements in the left and middle photographs with a little creative composition for a "not your everyday" photograph.
• Frame a background element with a foreground element.
• Use a wide-angle lens set at a small aperture and focus 1/3 into the scene to get max depth-of-field.
• Walk around a subject for a while before you shoot.
• Take a deep breath :-)
