Nature is alive.

Composition – Lines in Photography

There are different types of line in photography used in composition of a photograph.

These are:

Horizontal lines: can be used as a dividing point in an image and/or show a sense of stability

Vertical lines: can emphasize height, power or strength

Diagonal lines: can invoke depth or direct attention of the viewer to a certain subject.

Converging lines: can invoke distance or point of interest.

Our experiment this week was converging lines and our subject abandoned railway see how we did.

Enjoy:

All images available for sale and/or large print.

Week Sixteen 2017 – On the Road

Kenya has very many beautiful sites and as we travel we also carry our equipments to capture some of these sites.

In this scenario we were on a moving vehicle and for clear images we had to use very high shutter speed to negate motion blur.

See how we did enjoy:

Looking far into the abyss.

Curved and hilly road.

Going wide.

A day of travel is never finished without a sunset.

We came across a few bird to illustrate the zoom.

Some leaves and fruits.

Testing on the macro were on the lens it state 1.5m/4.9ft

Week Nine 2017 – Energy Ball

When we are not taking pictures of people or event, we chase after the sun as it goes down.

We prearrange a location that we will be doing this and head in slightly earlier as below:

Amazing terrain with awesome lighting.

As time goes by we experience colour change of the sky.

Then we get full colour change and work our creativity.

Foreground and background composition.

Finally editors favourite:

Week Four 2017 – Shadows

A shadow is a dark area where light from a light source is blocked by an opaque object. It occupies all of the three-dimensional volume behind an object with light in front of it. The cross section of a shadow is a two-dimensional silhouette, or a reverse projection of the object blocking the light.

We have been working on a few learning techniques in learning photography.

This week our focus was on shadows.

Some shadow-less images to test the light before the experiments.

We have 5 and/or more uses of shadows in photography below:

  • Focus
  • Revealing Form
  • Directing the Attention
  • Contrast and Drama
  • Revealing Texture

Week Two 2017 – Black and White

This week we are doing an experiment.

Most of the time we go shooting nature we know nothing of the place just an idea of what we would like our images to look like therefore not following any rule or breaking them all.

So we decide to go by the books.

First this is hitting google and you get tips like;

  1. shoot in raw (we do this always)
  2. look for contrast, pattens…
  3. pay attention to shadows lines shapes…

We took on the challenge with only one lens in hand, this is what we made…enjoy
