As I am reading Within the Frame by David duChemin this month, I am starting to think about and work on my vision. During my photowalk around the Village of Liverpool earlier this week I took a little extra time when looking through the viewfinder. Asking questions beyond the technical (focus, aperture, shutter speed) to see if what I was photographing is what I wanted to communicate. Let’s see how I did.
I added and subtracted elements in this photo by moving and using the Nikon 18-200mm VR to zoom in and out until I was satisfied I told the story as I saw it. I could tell you what that story is. However, I am more interested in what you think the story is. What does this photo tell you?
This next photo I didn’t happen upon as I did the one above. I’ve seen this structure my entire life. I wanted to tell you something about it. Everything you see I had thought about before I set up my tripod and waited for the Sun to drop below the horizon. What does this photo tell you?
There is no right or wrong answers just your thoughts. Thank you for your time!
