Shot fro m the to cre­ate ng dia go­nals

NPhoto - - Lead Feature -

Shoot­ing a line of ob­jects from the side will cre­ate a strong di­ag­o­nal that sug­gests re­la­tion­ships be­tween things. So if you have a line of ele­phants and you pho­to­graph them from the front, you will need to stand some way back, and the an­i­mals will be small, with too much sky or fore­ground. Stand close to the end ele­phant and shoot at an an­gle, and it will all but fill the frame, and the rest of the line will stretch out show­ing the rep­e­ti­tion. This tech­nique can be used with all sorts of subjects and even carved pat­terns. Ex­per­i­ment with aper­ture and fo­cus point, and use a tele­photo or a wide-an­gle lens.
