I got some really great shots for Samantha's latest Lens Revolution assignment! Composition is the element of photography that allows the most freedom. I love playing around with it and trying to figure out why photographers chose the set up that they did.
The challenge this week was to play around with four types of shots. I went outside to my favorite little tree because it happens to be showing off right now. These were taken on a cloudless day with my Canon Rebel XTi equipped with a 55-250mm zoom lens.
Let me know which shot is your favorite!
I've always known that I tend to take shots according to the "rules". My pictures are usually composed according to the rule of thirds and I like to zoom in so that I leave very little negative space. As a blogger, negative space comes in handy when creating graphics. I've really wanted to work on that style simply because it doesn't come naturally to me.
This week's challenge forced me to play with negative space. I'm pretty sure that that last shot is my absolute favorite. I learned more about my style and also got to go through about 50 shots to see what I feel works and what just doesn't work for me.
