While taking creative photography classes for my BS in Photojournalism, one instructor said something that has stuck with me over the years and has been extremely useful:
Get even Closer.”
One of the Wonder Compass “wondering” activities is to set out with the intention of shooting single forms while getting very close.
ONE WONDER: One leaf, one stem, one flower bud, one trunk, one cloud, one rock, one bird, one….
Photography Tip: Get close and frame the image with a very simple background.
It is amazing to see the detail and awesomeness of abstract photography thorough nature which we breeze past every day. However, when we slow down, get close and frame the background simply: WOW.
