Images explained - Little stories about making decisions
Rain often destroys all photography plans. On top of all the inconveniences you also need to keep your equipment dry.
Don’t give up, as there are still plenty of opportunities without getting wet.
This scene would have been just ordinary. To change it I focused on the rain drops and used a shallow depth of field. Now the rain is the subject and so there is no need to have the people sharp.
Photography is not just a matter of aiming your camera and pressing the button. For collecting memories this is perfectly alright. But if you want to decide what exactly ends up in your photo and how, you have to spend some more time and make decisions.
What is it what you want? Are there any distractions or irrelevant parts you definitely don’t want in your image? Do you want to be creative by changing your aperture or shutter speed? Or even move the camera (or just the lens) while pressing the shutter, to add a certain effect? What is the best moment to press the button?
This is a series of images where I explain what it is what I wanted and how I executed my plans.
These are things I talk about on my photography tours. If this appeal to you, check out the tours or go straight to www.photo-voyager.com to make your booking.
