What makes a photo a photo? Is it the snap of the camera? Is it the eye of the photographer? Could it be that they seeing, the noticing something worth capturer with a camera? Maybe it is all of these. Anyone can point a camera and push a button. I think the real trick in taking a great photo over taking a good one is the eye of the photographer? What is captured on the camera senior is truly up to them. Some ways in which I feel photographers can make better photos is to start looking at subjects from a different point of view(pov). I mean that literally. Once they have a subject to photograph. Whether that subject is an epic landscape in nature or a model on a photo shoot or a small flower in a field. Changing the POV can take a good photo and make it a great one.
ABOUT THIS PHOTO: This is a great example of changing ones POV to create a better photo. I was walking around looking for things to snap away at with my camera. I had seen the rain had stopped but it was still very wet out. I saw this dripping tree and thought I wounder what I can create from it. Now I could have just stood back and taken a photo of the tree as a whole. I chose to change my POV. I am glad I did. I created this crazy image with many lines leading your eye around the photo. Looking for the end and the beginning. What is the main subject here? Is it the big branches, the little ones or is it the water drops about to drip from them? I think it is something different for every viewer. What is it for you? What is thing in this photo finds your focus? Leave a comment and let me know. I would love to hear from you all.
Travel is a part of life for many Home schooled families. We are no exception. We travel when ever we can. Over the past few years we have been to Florida two times. The firsts trip we took we had our car so I was able to take small day trips out and about looking for photo ops. One thing I learned about the part of Florida was that it so so flat it was hard to find a spot that you could see a sunset and see anything in the landscape that would make a photo interesting. At least I could not seem to find many. So what is a photographer to do? Look lower of course. I went hiking around rest stops and under bridges. I was very happy with the many locations I was able to stumble across.
ABOUT THIS PHOTO:
This was one of those spots you do not know you are going to find until your standing there. I had pulled into a spot on the other side of the road that I thought looked like a spot that would yield some great photos. Little did I know that once there I would find this walk way under the road that led me to this swampy area. I took a lot of photos of this spot. It was so great to be in a city yet so close to nature. I got done low for this shot and used a wide fish eye lens. It really gives the trees a tall look and and even more Jurassic feel.
Daytona Beach Landscape | Limited Addition Fine Art Photography
PHOTO OF THE DAY- Daytona Beach Landscape
For a few years our family has made the trip to Florida making the trip via car and RV. We head to Walt Disney World for a few of the days. The Kids love the rides and I have learned to love them too. I think The Aerosmith ride, The Rock 'n' Roller Coaster. It very fast roller coaster with a few loops and high speed. The music is blasting as you make your way to a concerts staring Aerosmith. On the trip I take many photos of the parks and the landscape of Florida. We have also made a tradition of stopping at Daytona Beach on the why home. It is a great way to close out our time in Florida and a great start to a long drive back north. Ever time we have gone over to Daytona the weather has been great. Like most trips to the beach it is breezy and wet. The kids always say they are not go into get wet, yet they end up running in the water and then we need to find a place to change before the next leg of the trip. This day was no different.
ABOUT THIS PHOTO
This was taken with a 15-50 mm lens on its widest setting, trying to capture as much of the beach as I could. I think it looks great in Black & White. The seagulls and the pilers make this photo what it is. They are the a main subject and really let you know your at the ocean. The one solo flying gull adds to the drama of the clouds and ties it all together. Prints are available for purchase in many sizes from 8x12 prints up to 36X48 canvas prints.
