#3091 Composition

Posted by MikeSudomaPhoto on 08 October 2013 - 04:29 PM

I agree MikeSudomaPhoto, empty space tends to draw the viewers eye away from the main focus or point of the image to much, try to find some leading lines in your image to draw people into the picture and make them feel they are there in the picture. You've got some great pictures there to!

Thanks Scoobs, I agree with you fully on leading lines! It's awesome when theres a person or something interesting that the lines lead unto.   It rewards the eyes a little bit.

Still think this is the main reason for the speed of the update


New Increased Speed and Performance: A new shutter mechanism in the D610 affords a faster frame rate. Users can now capture the action at a continuous 6 frames-per-second (fps), which is ideal for photographing action sports or elusive wildlife

Might as well just stick with the D7100!!!   Other than having a full frame sensor, and maybe the new and improved weather sealing, the 7100 is better in everyway

Im not old or pro by any means, but when I capture still life try and make your image tell a story. Capture your still life from interesting angles to keep the composition interesting. Remember you don't always have to get everything in the shot (e.g. full buildings, trees, etc) Try to communicate what the subjects in the scene are doing, where the shot is and how you feel about the subject through your image.  I hope this helps seeing as I am not that great at explaining myself at times, Especially in the morning :P




Not currrently updated but here are some examples of some of my still life work. Hope this helps

#2835 Getting Low

Unless you've always shot low - in that case, get high! (with the camera I mean ;) or not, whatever )

Or both!    Definitly creative hahaha

I often shoot as low to the ground as possible, I find it adds to the DOF as theres provides a greater perspective of distance... heres a few examples:













great shots Scott!   the DOF of the carpet in the kid on the trike photo is brilliant!

Get creative and shoot low. It will change the way you, as a photographer, view the world around you. This can result in more interesting compositions at a different perspective.  It can make for some really interesting, creative shots
