Often we take photographs that have more than one subject or a group of things that are similar. We use our composition to underline similarity or differences. But whatever the case, clarity is key. We don’t want to leave our audience guessing unnecessarily.

Forgetting for the moment what the subject is, surely the objective of any photograph is to create something you can take pride in. To have people look at it and stop for a just moment and see the magnitude and the grandeur of your subject.

We are often taller than our subject and we are told eye level is the “thing to do”, that shooting down is a “no no”.  At the very least this advice is limiting and it impedes creativity. I try the proper route but I also try other less “orthodox” solutions for composition, noise and sometimes colour.


Hanging In (Two Photographs)

I could have titled this hanging on, but my point was as the year moves on colors fade and only a few sturdy and plucky flowers hang in before the chill and dampness of fall really digs in. It can be an interesting time to shoot, certainly the light is much more interesting.

One reason I am obsessed with carrying extra batteries with me and making sure I have good cards in the camera is knowing that whatever I see and want to photograph will not be there tomorrow or even an hour later. I’ve missed a few things over the years and don’t wish to do it again.

I often see something interesting and try my best to capture it. There are times when it becomes a matter of exploration or a roll of the dice as to whether the resulting photo comes close to what I had in mind. Sometimes you have think about what the result might look like as a print to visualize your depth of field or the background you are after. It’s another reason why I never take just one shot.

The pundits say there is always something to photograph but we all have days where we find nothing to shoot. It might be because we have too much familiarity with the scene or it’s one of those days when our heart is not in our photography. I’m always hopeful that if I slow down a bit I will find something worth a second look.
