Wk 2 - Vantage PointsWeek 2 - woooowzers i honestly feel like i've been doing this for a lot longer then just two weeks. I'm still finding my feet, and trying to keep on track. So far so good, just need to keep practicing!
Yesterday we went on a class trip - a short one, just up the road to the Otara town centre. The aim of this trip was to take some photos from different vantage points. Vantage points are the varied angles in which you can take photos such as high, low or even straight on.
Here are some high and low angle shots that i took:
High angle shot
|f/4, 1/125, ISO 100|
|f/4.0, 1/200, ISO 100|
|f/3.5, 1/1600, ISO 100|
I'm looking forward to practicing more on my angles. Ben Long from www.lynda.com speaks about vantage points helping you see mundane things from a different perspective. That speaks volumes to me especially as a newbie, sometimes i get so swayed by an idea of a photo that i miss an opportunity to capture a moment or subject which might may be the best shot i've ever taken.
