March 22nd - Photo Challenge “Focusing on Angles”

We think most of us realize by now that taking a straight-on photo of someone is usually not the best choice for portrait photography. Boring! :)

Unusual angles are fun and cool...and they make your photo stand out from the rest of the pack.

For this week's photo challenge, we are focusing on unusual angles. Stand higher than your subject, lay on the ground, move to the side, tilt your camera while you are shooting...do what you need to do to give your photo a uniqueness of it's own. A unique angle is what this week is all about.

And (of course!) make sure at least one face is clearly showing in your photo entry as well.




I love this picture of my grandson, taken February of this year.  He was very interested in being photographed, so I took advantage of his extended attention span, a true rarity.  Hope you like it too!

  12. A picture of just the fence at that angle would be cool, but then you add in your grandson, and it's awesome!
