Nancy Merrill Photography always brings out the best with her weekly challenges. This week, with ‘Vanishing Point’, she highlights one of the principal guidelines in taking great photographs – Perspective. Nothing aids perspective more than a proper vanishing point to guide the eye through the subject matter of a photograph or painting.
I have chosen two photos from our trip to Helsinki to demonstrate both the curved and the straight line vanishing point techniques.
Note in the second photo that everything is moving away from the observer toward the vanishing point, emphasizing it even more.
Neither photo is of prize winning quality, but both are useful in demonstrating the technique of the ‘Vanishing Point’.
Is the next meal on the way? Will she feed me now? I need more food!
Aw, come on, Mom! Dish the fish!!
Tuesday Photo Challenge is a great deal of fun. Frank Jansen has been running this challenge for a long time, but he always seems to find a new twist in his topics. Join the fun on his blog ‘Dutch goes the Photo!’
