BBW 30-Day Photo Challenge – Day 9: Texture

09 Apr

Today’s Blessed Beyond Words Photo Challenge topic is ‘texture’.

It was an interesting day to do this, as normally you would look at a texture and think “that’s nice,” and possibly take a photo of it, straight on. This is what I did here:

Texture - a boring perspective

It’s ok as photos go, but flat. You can see it’s a floor. So what?

I did some reading about Point of View today. Specifically it was Light Stalking’s article on What’s your point of view. This changed my perspective today and made me think. Yes this is a texture. One of a tiled floor. But how can I express my point of view?

So I changed my perspective.

So now you can see my perspective. This is a bit of texture – a tiled floor in a shopping centre. OK – I get that it ain’t a Pulitzer Prize winning photo, but for me this simple exercise created a more interesting photo than I normally would have taken – looking down at the object. From now on I’ll be getting over, under and around things to try and get a perspective that communicates more about what I am seeing.

    Love the change of view. When I’m out with my camera I try to remember to crawl around and lean over and all my other yoga poses to capture something interesting. Good job.
