APOY Round 8
How to capture the essence of travel
Your chance to enter Round 8: Travellers’ Tales
How low can you go?
Shoot at ground level – it’s a surefire way of capturing an unusual image, as it forces you to play with angles and perspective. Fit a wideangle lens for an even more dynamic result.
Go behind someone’s back
We tend to photograph people from the front, but take time to check out the view from behind, too. This image is all about symmetry, and wouldn’t be as effective if we could see the subjects’ faces.
Don’t forget the architecture
Buildings can say as much about a place and its culture as the people do, so why not try making these your subject? Look for graphic shapes and include figures for scale, where possible.
Look for blocks of colour
It can be easy to be overwhelmed by colours when travelling, so make a conscious effort to isolate just one hue. This image is made even more impactful by the graphic lines that break up the red.
