Seeing through the camera

posted on 21st of march, 2010

Taking pictures not only involve looking and shooting.

When we are experiencing a certain place space or object, not only our vision is stimulated; all our senses are; so when the photo is taken one may think that a great photo has been shot, but in reality it may be a corny boring shot void of all senses that we had experienced.

A shot should be analysed in terms of color values and clarity of the subject.
To shoot a tree having the same light source as the mountain behind; flatness will dominate.

Avoid seeing your subject through the camera as you see it through your senses.

About me

I hike a lot, I traveled a lot and so did my camera. Nature takes my time and covers my white empty walls. Apart from Nature shots; I also work on 3D stills in addition to 2D illustrations with minor pictures from here and there. Regarding nature shots, I hope they do cover your walls and further enrich your senses with more understanding to the world we live in. I\'m one of Dreamstime\'s remote editors.
