I thought I’d share a photo tip I use when taking pictures:
CHANGE YOUR PERSPECTIVE
We so often are just quickly snapping photos that we end up with hundreds of almost identical pictures. A simple change in your stance or perspective can make all the difference. Here is a recent example.
The boys were getting ready to fish so I started snapping. I took the image on the left and noticed his head, pole and backlighting and new it would make a fun silhouette but there wasn’t much of my son in the photo. So I squatted down and aimed my phone up so I could see more of him. For silhouettes you’ll want your camera or phone to expose the sky (touch the sky area on your iPhone).
It made a HUGE difference in the feel of the photo itself. Here are both of the originals straight from the phone
What’s your favorite way to change perspective?
