“Good art is art that allows you to enter it from a variety of angles and to emerge with a variety of views.” Mary Schmich
Even the dullest bird or face becomes interesting when you give it a good look in the wild/flesh. The way the shadow drops across the cheek, the light hits an eyebrow, etc… there are many more angles, positions etc. than you can ever imagine. My heart always makes a little jump when I see things in birds or faces that surprise me. Siegfried Woldhek
These photos speak for themselves. When I saw today’s photo challenge – From Every Angle – I thought of a few things and decided on the collection of pictures here. I considered food but, I wanted a bit more movement and this first shot fit the bill. In case you are wondering, I took the pictures from a Tour of Manhattan bus that was a hilarious ride… more on that later. The break-dancer gave us a street show and I captured what I could from a slow-moving bus. We live in a 3 dimensional world, and we might as well capture as much of it as we can and pay attention to everything!. My smartphone camera took most of the photos for this challenge.
“A figure with curves always offers a lot of interesting angles.” Wesley Ruggles
The landscape is like being there with a powerful personality and I’m searching for just the right angles to make that portrait come across as meaningfully as possible. Galen Rowell
I know, I know, I know… It is a very tacky looking Xmas tree that I saw in a hospital waiting room. Yet, something about it was very charming. I figured that a few different angle shots of it would be entertaining… I hope it made you laugh out loud as it did me… Yep, I saw it today!
“Look at situations from all angles, and you will become more open.” Dalai Lama
Whenever I arrive on a real location, I have to move around and work out what the best angles are going to be. When I was moving around with the lens, I discovered things that the naked eye would not have.Pedro Almodovar
Cock your hat – angles are attitudes.Frank Sinatra
The Blueman Group were part of the wonderful entertainment we enjoyed during Blogger Bash, and we got to take a few photos post show… They are not the best photos but, they share the story of angles… Enjoy and stay tuned for my upcoming 4 free tickets giveaway to their show nationwide. Happy Weekend!
My fellow bloggers were equally creative with their selections. Check out how others interpreted the theme – From Every Angle – below.
This post was inspired by a prompt from WP Daily Post: Weekly Photo Challenge: From Every Angle – For this week’s photo challenge, photograph a person, or a piece of fruit, or a toy — any stationary object — and experiment by photographing it from different angles. While there is no minimum — and you’re always welcome to adapt every photo challenge to meet your needs — I challenge you to choose three of your favorite shots and post them in a gallery on your blog.
Here are a few tips to help you alter your photographic composition:
Photograph a person by beginning from their left side and slowly moving around to their right. Always have them either look directly at you, or ask them to focus on a spot on the wall as you move.
Take wide-angle shots and tight shots.
Photograph a plate of food from slightly above, from directly above, or making sure that part of the plate is cut out of the frame.
Photograph your child by getting down to his or her level or by standing just out of their reach as they swing on a swing.
Enjoy the process! I look forward to seeing your photos.
Positive Motivation Tip: We live in a 3 dimensional world, pay attention to everything!
