All about angles {Miss August}

August 11, 2014

Have any of you gotten any great shots of your hometown this week?  I know it’s the south…and it’s hot.  My husband is from Maine…so he says it’s “wicked hot”.  That’s a phrase they use…and I’m still not used to it, but it’s true…it’s “wicked hot down here in the south”!

Photography Tips of the Week to better your blog appearance with beautifully composed images!

Composition is Key to making your images stellar as we talked last week about Filling the Frame.
This week lets talk about Angles.
Think of changing up your angles verses always looking STRAIGHT on your subject.
Here is an example of a fence.  Simple example but I feel it gets the point across!

Ask yourself where I can stand to create more interest?  Should I squat down? Should I stand up and look down on the subject?

This will create interest and creativity.

So what did I do in this image? I took it straight on and thought, wait this is just BLAH!  What can I do to create more interest?  Stand right against the fence and look down it.  I got the same scenery yet a much more creative and inviting image!
