Before and after

Postby PeteD » Sat Mar 12, 2016 2:09 am

When I was toying with the idea of doing another 52 week thread, I was trying to come up with new ideas. One of which was a kind of tutorial/how to/tips type of deal where I could demonstrate the before and after with photos.

Like the two photos below. All I did was walk 30 feet to the left and it made the composition cleaner, background less busy, and so on.

May have to do this idea next time

It does help a lot. Sometimes we forget that we have feet. :)

Thanks Tom.

Whenever I see something I have not been lucky enough to get before, I take a quick shot just so I can have one. Then after studying it for a bit , seeing if it is relaxed, tense, moving through , whatever I can then look around as to ways to make the shot better. In this case I did not like the tree just to the left of the kingfisher or the duck house to the right. Yes , they tell the story of the environment I was in. But not the type of shot I was looking for. SO I looked around , and moved.

Trying to save up now as I want a 1.4 and a 2.0 teleconverter. To bring those distant, small subjects closer. This was about 100 yards away

The teleconverter is on my wish list too. :)
