This article features a selection of geometric compositions that were captured handheld with Nikon 1 gear while on a tour of Italy. As noted in an earlier article, Learning to See More, geometric compositions can pop out when using ‘soft eyes’ technique.
As photographers… and as human beings… learning to see more is an important skill that helps to transform how we experience the world around us. From a photographic standpoint, it has always fascinated me how differently people can capture the world around them, even when standing right next to another photographer.
It can be instructive to remember that sometimes less can be more when it comes to how we compose an image. In my last article I mentioned that we can learn a great deal by going through old images and thinking about how we could improve them. This posting discusses lessons that I learned from reviewing three old photographs captured back in the fall of 2014.
This article shares some bird portraiture considerations and illustrates them primarily with a selection of photographs of a crested caracara.
This article discusses cropping bird photographs and provides a number of sample images to illustrate some approaches that can be used. Photographic composition is very subjective. So, you may, or may not, agree with some of the approaches used in this article. The objective of this posting is simply to illustrate some cropping options that can be considered.
This article shares a selection of landscape photographs and discusses factors that were considered when creating these Crawford Lake compositions.
On occasion we may happen to be at the right place, at the right time… as was the case with this early morning egret. This article shares a selection of six images from the same AF-C run. Even though all of the photographs are of the same bird, you’ll notice the differences that subject angle, wing position and background can make to an image.
As photographers it can challenging at times bringing inspiration to life. This article shares a selection of images captured during our trip to Italy in the fall of 2019, as well as sharing some approaches used with these photographs.
As a photographer, there is nothing more important than being able to reveal your photographic soul through your images. Sometimes we get caught up in quite meaningless aspects of photography. The amount of money we spend on camera gear. The size of the sensors in our cameras. Our choice of lenses. The software programs we use in post. Comparisons of trivial differences between pieces of kit. While these things may help us create our images, they are not integral parts of our photographic soul.
