|Viki works to get a wildflower shot, |
remembering that it's much better to get down to the level
of your subject to get the best angle of view.
|Decide what our subject is,|
then make sure it's obvious to your audience.
The sun had technically risen, but had not reached it's beautiful fingers to the park. As we talked a little about our experiences, and what we each liked to photograph the most, the color on the tree tops started to change, and then reached the river. Beautiful. No direct sun, but a lovely diffused light which got us in the mood to look for more early morning scenes to photograph.
There are numerous ducks in our area, so they were a logical subject. I have been so often instructed to shoot "through the bars," so as to not get the fence in your wildlife photo. However, I was actually missing some good shots I decided, as I watched Viki capture some nicely framed duck photos. The fence separating the walkway from the river made a great framing tool!
|I didn't notice the ripples being put out by these ducks until|
I examined the photos later.
I think it adds to the framing of the subject.
|Make decisions on how you frame your subject based on what|
you like, and your audience will usually like it as well.
|Are those leaves changing color already?! |
I personally don't mind a hint that fall is on the way, but let's not rush it!
|These ducks are definitely the subject, even though it's not a "portrait." |
The scene around your subject is also important at times.
Enjoy this day, and every day.
