Perspective is [sometimes] all it takes

June 25, 2011

dandelion macro photography with a blue sky in the background

I have written about this before, but as I was looking through some of my pictures (I’m working on re-vamping the fine art page of my website) I noticed these two pictures.  They look SO different and I have very different reactions towards them.  The first one is very BLAH and not exciting.  I took that one standing up.  Then I realized that the sky above was slightly blue, so I got down on my knees (actually I think I was on my elbows) and re-took the picture at below the level of the dandelion, so I could get the sky in the background.

And viola!  A totally different picture!

So just a reminder to say that perspective makes a HUGE difference when trying to take creative shots.  So get dirty, move around and have fun!

    You’re absolutely right! The second photo is quite a bit different than the first – the background makes a big difference! Something I have trouble remembering sometimes…. Nice work!! 🙂
