A key element in photography is the capability to capture the ordinary world while allowing your audience to experience it in a new way……(things that make you go hmmmm). You want to grab their attention and keep their eye on the photo.
For instance the average person that has been on a boat doc has seen this site a thousand times. And yet, when you investigate this photo you notice so many different elements that I’m sure have gone unnoticed. The stark blue against the monotone brown of the wood. The different textures of the wood, rope and metal. It also draws your eye off the photo – clearly knowing that on the other end of the rope is some kind of water vessel but your imagination puts your personal image there….A small fishing boat, a ski boat, a yacht…… When observing this photo one can almost feel the warmth of the wood on bare feet from the sunshine. Or envision happy times out on the water with friends or family.
A photo has the power to do so much more than simply capturing a moment in time. Allow yourself to look at the world differently. Look at it with a photographers eye. You will be amazed at how small the world becomes and how all the details around you suddenly become pulled into focus. You will be truly amazed at the world in which you live.
