Challenging A Battle
Another picture was of a barn at my house. I didn’t even try to take the photograph artistically, so I was shocked when I uploaded my findings. The domination of lines is empowering as they make the viewer’s eyes travel through the entire photo. Also, the sky is so blue that it’s appealing to the eye. The fence photographed at an angle enhances the design greatly.The environment is simple, yet complicated enough to be interesting.
There were a couple of flower pictures I took that shows a distinct design of lines. I also love the bright colors. It was hard to take the picture without my shadow being shown, but I kept trying different angles. My advice to anyone trying to become a photographer is to change positions often and to not fall into the 5’ 7” syndrome. These photos were also difficult because of the dry weather.
Leaves are also great objects to play with when it comes to finding a design full of lines. Whether they are photographed close-up or far away, composition must be constantly on your mind. For example, in the picture below the lines of the leaves are strong. Yet there are soft lines in the background constructed of branches.
As seen in the photo below, the leaves are still interesting from far away. I love the composition because it appears as a near/far. I was careful while taking the photo to not make it appear unbalanced.
I obviously took several photos this week, so many that it was hard to decide which ones I should add to my blog. My advice for this week is to not give up on an object. Amazing pictures don’t come easily and they are usually found after changing points of view. The best idea is to constantly change positions and challenge yourself.
Thank you for viewing my blog. I hope my photography is inspiring, so please feel free to ask me any questions. I’m open to advice or simply just comments as well. If you would like to view my photos, please click here. My assignment for you is to challenge yourself, don’t settle for simple.
