A place to think about composition in photography

Painting-like effects in photography without photoshop

This is a straight shot, apart from a little cropping the photograph is pretty much as taken.

On Sharpness…

This has a painterly like quality to it.

Too often as photographers we are pressed to create pin-sharp images where every single detail is resolved in perfect order.

It doesn’t have to be like that, well not all the time anyway.

One of the difficulties in composing photographs, is how to be different.  this sounds easy but it is incredibly hard to do.  There are lots of people out there taking photographs and adding to the global collection most of these are sort of carbon copies of one another.

In our mass-produced society being different is  a highly prized condition.  When you think you have something different, tell people about it, add to the richness of human creativity.  If you find out it has been done before well you can always give it another go.

Being different makes you think harder and live a little more intensely, isn’t that a fascinating thought?
