You have heard of the phrase: it pays to think out of the box… It works with taking pictures too! I’m not a professional photographer, I only do it as a hobby. And here, I’d like to share some of my findings… 🙂
Take a shot of a glass of soda.
How about trying a different angle, like from the top? But you say, you won’t see the glass properly… ? This is where thinking out of the box comes into play.
How is this? Do you like it better? Same glass, same drink, same orange coaster – shot from the top and cropped off to one side. I can pass it off as an abstract…maybe… But I think it makes a more interesting picture. You see the glass differently as well as see more of the bubbles in the soda. It all adds to the picture, I think.
How about I make it a black and white?
Does it look more artistic? Kinda trendy, I thought – I can maybe use it as a poster for my wall! 😀
So, what I’m trying to say is – there is no right or wrong, but just taking a more interesting picture, maybe one that makes the observer think more about it. “What am I looking at?” “What is this?”
