Today I’m sharing my 4th and 5th images of this challenge.
Yesterday I was experimenting with Still Life for a course I am doing with Kim Klassen.. and I wondered if I could find something that I thought fit ‘seeing differently’.
I chose these two images below, because a few ideas popped out at me.
Image 4 of 15
Image 5 of 15
- Illuminating your subject
- Choosing your focal point
- Shooting at eye level (approx).
Illuminating your subject really draws the eye right to it – then you begin exploring the rest of the image.. Try using the light if appropriate to experiment with ways of doing this, within your composition.
Choose your focal point – instead of letting the camera do it. You might choose an unlikely focal point. Experiment with different focal points within your image. Debi gives some thoughts on this also 🙂
Shooting at eye level, ground level or top down – these are different ways of viewing your subject and give very different results. Brenda has a wonderful post today about shooting from a toddler’s view.
As I said, just a few thoughts. I hope they give you something to ponder and / or to try for yourself.
If the challenge (idea) appeals to you, please jump in. You are welcome 🙂 We will be exploring throughout October.
