A Tip about Backgrounds (Two Photographs)

PerspectiveTo view more of my photography please click on www.rakmilphotography.com

At the presentation I recently gave on photography one of the tips I mentioned was on backgrounds. The first of these photographs was taken with a slight tilt downwards and the second straight on. The tip is about how to take advantage of a colorful background in this case water. The slight change in perspective, (by tilting down) makes all the difference to the photograph. I have used this with animals and birds on water. Backgrounds can highlight or confuse your subject; they can help isolate your subject, or as in the case here add some texture and color to your landscape.

    • Thank you. I would not be the first to say photography can sometimes be a matter of inches.
