Perspective is [sometimes] all it takes
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!
