Take an al­ter­na­tive ap­proach to your sea­sonal im­age-mak­ing

NPhoto - - Feature -

While a warm­ing sum­mer land­scape is pleas­ing to the eye, there’s al­ways scope to try some­thing more dy­namic. We’ve al­ready touched on us­ing a tele­photo lens to com­press the per­spec­tive of a land­scape, but bear in mind how your shoot­ing an­gle can also af­fect the re­sult. Crouch­ing down low in fo­liage or flow­ers gives a much more in­ti­mate feel. So, too, does widen­ing the aper­ture and throw­ing the fore­ground or back­ground out of fo­cus. For a re­ally dras­tic look, give in­frared a go (above). Blue skies and fluffy white clouds look great with this ef­fect, as the harsh and con­trast­ing sun­light cre­ates a sur­real, bleached look.
