This is a great time to practice the art of photography and grab some great pictures. In a previous post we talked about taking pics of your children but we'll talk a little more about it. It's so important to grab those photos when you can. We all know how quickly they grow up!
Your life the way you live it, your story
I love story telling with my images. 'Every picture tells a story' as they say.
You're in charge of the kind of story you want to tell with your photos. Bear in mind, just because you have the camera in your hand at eye level it doesn't mean that's where you have to stay!
The power of perspective ....

Perspective in a nutshell
- To get a sense of scale - shoot at eye level or downwards
- From a child's perspective - get down to their level
- Shoot intimately or to highlight detail - don't just stand there move your feet and get in close or zoom in
- To include the environment - shoot wide and include places and scenery
AND think about what story you're telling before you shoot and how perspective can make a difference to your photographs.
“Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.”
— Don McCullin
