Once in a while my best friend and I go out and take pictures
together. This would be the same best friend who taught
me most of the technical things I know about photography.
The best part of going to the same place together is
you get to see what you missed. Or, see the same
subject through someone else's eyes.
Her picture of
this scene was a really nice close up on the basket.
With the filtered light through the trees and the
texture of the basket it made a really striking composition.
Ever since looking through our shots from that day
I have been much more aware of the drastically different
images you can get from the same subject at the exact same moment.
Now, when I approach a subject, I try to grab a few "first impression" shots immediately.
Then, I take the time to ponder what else is possible, what
textures and odd compositions can I find, and of course...
