With Part 1 and Part 2 out the way, this is my final post on how to change the way you think about taking photos. Hopefully through the three posts you will be inspired to go and take photos. I’d love to see what you have taken – feel free to leave links to your photos below in the comments section.
Nineteen: Use your fellow photographers as models
Although photographers don’t always make the best models, feel free to grab someone you go out photographing with and get them to pose for you.
Twenty: Look for complementary shapes
I don’t think this is a great photo but I love how this Allium head reflects the clipped ball Buxus in the background.
Twenty-One: Be empowered by archways
Archways are so photogenic.
Twenty-Two: Look for repeating patterns
Repeating patterns can look great in a photo often in black and white.
Twenty-Three: Shoot flowers
If it’s a grey day, then it’s perfect for photographing flowers. Don’t worry if you can’t get close, photograph them in their surroundings.
Twenty-Four: Give an idea of environment or context
Find something interesting in the foreground and allow the background to fade out into the distance.
Twenty-Five: Take a ‘frothy’ image
I’m in love with this style of image at the moment. The style where nothing in particular is in focus, but the frame is filled with lots of a similar thing. Great for background images with a blurring filter.
That’s it for just now. I’m sure I will share some more images and ideas in the future. This is where we visited. Why not go down to your local park with a few interested friends or colleagues and have a go?
