I have two tips today… The first is to get yourself in the running for over $2000 in prizes in our 15th anniversary giveaway.
The second tip is about framing your image. I’m not talking about those wooden frames that you hang on your wall, I’m talking about frames within your images. Most people, when they look at something, are focused on that specific thing. When we photograph it, that subject is what takes up the whole frame. We simply are documenting what we see instead of creating a unique memory of our experiences. Here’s an example:
Here’s the classic image of the Arc De Triomphe in Paris France. It’s the image that’s on all the postcards, on all of the tourist brochures and the image that most of us capture when we see it.
Using frames within the image, there are more possibilities when taking photographs. Think outside the box, frame the image. Here’s the my shot. Same place, different look entirely.
Here’s another example.
The next time you are on holidays, remember to look for those frames. Don’t be afraid to have some fun with your images!
