I went for a walk today to grab some photos and came back with absolutely nothing. It was blowing a screaming hoolie and so I left my camera in my bag,
There was one spot where I thought I would set up my camera but when I looked around me I saw two shady looking characters watching me. They were clearly up to no good. I think that my newly found and slightly secluded landscape-shooting spot was an equally attractive haunt for those who wanted to hide from public view to carry out whatever their unsavory business was.
This is a relatively safe town but I thought removing my camera from the bag at that point probably would not have been a great idea. So I briskly carried on my walk,
Te picture I am posting is from a couple of week’s back.
It took me some time to work out what to do with this image. I liked the sun shining on the wave and the positioning of the island in the background but did not think the overall composition was right. I had tried a few crops before and, after sleeping on it for a week, it finally came to me when I revisited it today. The portrait crop worked far better than the original landscape orientation.
I will always try to maneuver to a place to get the best composition when I am taking the picture. Sometimes it is impossible to do this. I’m not advocating heavy cropping to make a tiny feature in the frame large; that rarely works well. Changing the size and shape of the framing repositions the features of the image and can create a better overall composition.
