Where did I go ? Good Photos

You might be wondering where in the world I got to. I'm wondering that too because I've barely left the house and certainly not the Town !
The day of my last post we took a walk to a cliff look out. Man had a camera. Man believes he is under a family curse and is destined to take poor photos. After this experience I'm bound to agree. I'm by no means a good photographer it is interesting to se what makes mine work a bit better.

I'm going to show you 2 pictures he took of me, and 2 I took of him.

It is hard to tell we are at the same place at the same time.
There are four things that make a difference and perhaps more I'm not aware of. These are good to know for rug designing too.
Position of the horizon line.
Capturing available light
Making something more important than all the other things.
Rule of thirds.
What else do you notice ?

  1. Oh, Wanda, are we actually married to the same man? Lane doesn't look like Martin, but the photography skills/composition are the same. There is no warning when he takes a picture, no time to compose my expression, no eliminating the kitchen clutter in the background. His favorite is a shot of me, just out of bed, playing cards or some game with a grandchild. He is well intentioned, what can I say?
