Sorry about the title, I couldn’t help myself.
How about a behind the scenes shot from Maine today? This is the power stance of Canon shooters, sitting on the ground. Ok, I can’t really poke fun at her fun getting low. Low angles are great for creating interesting compositions. How often do you see things from your eye level? All day, everyday. Getting down low allows for a perspective that we don’t see too often.
If you’re going to shoot from a low angle with a DSLR, a wide angle lens is great. Just be sure to make sure your horizon is level, and keep an eye on the sky, as it will be overexposed in a scene like the one we were capturing on a grey day. Sometimes, theres nothing you can do about it, and you have to accept it, other times, you can look for different compositions to minimize the amount of overexposed sky in your shot.
The original photo of Shannon shooting down this path in the woods was nice and all, but I’m kind of in double exposure mode as I finish writing up that article today.
Here are the two images I used to create the above image in Union.
I’m pretty sure I used the multiply blending mode with the leaf image in the foreground. I’ll be discussing blending modes and how they work in the upcoming article. I’m trying to keep it simple and easy to understand. Math is hard…and theres a bit of math that goes into them.
Well, its back to work for me. Enjoy your weekend!
