It’s day five of our 30 Day photo challenge and things couldn’t be going better. Before we continue, here’s a little recap of what we’ve done so far.
We started with the Rule of Thirds. The Rule of Thirds is a very useful tool in building composition in your photos. Composition is the position of elements in your shot and how they work together to create a story.
The No Sunset/Sunrise is one of my favorite activities on our list. The idea behind this one is to work on seeing your shots through different viewpoints. As a photographer, your objective is to deliver a piece of information to your audience. Often, taking a step back and showing a different side of something will not only add depth to your subject but will better engage your audience.
Day three we took photos of textures, and what a challenge that can be. While composition is the most important thing in your shot, it’s also important to spend a little time working with your camera and figuring it out on a technical side. Your camera is a tool and it’s important to figure out how it works. The same techniques used to properly capture a texture can be applied to almost any photo you take.
High and low angles add prospective to our shots. Often we don’t have a choice in what angle we want to take, but choosing an angle helps give a little character to our shots.
