Photography Tip of the Week #6
Don't just stand there - Do something less boring !
You walk into a location and think this will take a great shot grab you camera and take the shot with a 50mm lens. !
What you have captured is the view that everybody can see
A 50mm lens on a full frame and a 35mm on a cropped sensor camera will give you what you eye sees.
Your stood where everybody stands.
Your at the same eye level as everybody else.
This is BORING!
So what can you do?
Shoot High Hold
Shoot Low Place your camera at ground level view ( use the tilt screen if you have one)
Change the lens. Go wide angle
Change the perspective shoot from close to one aspect with another far away
Use depth of field Throw one aspect out of focus keeping another in focus
Find those leading lines that will take your eye through the image
Look for abstract detail
