Taking pictures from different perspectives captures interesting images and unexpected views. When I feel unsure of how the picture will come out, I move around and experiment with shots from various angles. I’m surprised at how this trial and error approach leads to my most memorable images.
Thanks Patti for hosting this challenge…
She breaks down how to take photos from 4 separate categories: 1) getting down low, 2) looking down, 3) looking up, and 4) walking around the subject. Please take a look at her site!
Looking up: Carnivorous Pitcher Plant. It eats by luring insects into its tube with sweet smells and the slippery substance make the bugs unable to escape.
Walking around the subject: Side view capturing what a person would view sitting by the window. Historic home of Elizabeth Gamble (granddaughter of the co-founder of Proctor & Gamble) Palo Alto, CA.
Looking up: Late summer view of Redwood trees in Santa Cruz, CA.
Walking around the subject: San Diego, getting the tip top of buildings against the expansive clouds.
Walking around the subject: Tried to capture the surrounding ambiance and simplistic beauty of the lighthouse and assistant’s house on the right, Point Loma, San Diego
Looking down: Kids’ story of dinosaurs curiously investigating a ready-to-hatch egg that fell out of a crashed plane.
