I’m continuing to explore photographic elements such as geometry, balance, and lines. This weekend I looked for parallel lines around our house to capture.
I found these horizontal parallels on our stairs.
It is important to keep the lines in your images straight to keep your images from looking distracting. This can be tricky. A tip is to use your view finder to line up your horizontal lines parallel to the top or bottom of your view finder.
I also tried to incorporate the geometry and vertical lines of sun and shadows on the wall with side light. This is certainly a first attempt with this kind of lighting. I am usually a high key shooter, but I do want to explore some lower key moody lighting.
I’m really confirming, through some continuing education, how much photography really is art, math, and science rolled into one. I can’t believe how much photography is teaching me to see. The way I see the world is so changed. There is such a huge difference between looking and seeing.
Have you experienced this visual shift in your own journey? What are you seeing through fresh lenses?
