JOYous Nature Photo Walk
Dance with your camera.
Be present, conscious, observe, slow down, look, view from all angles, be alert, be silent. Breathe, hold breath.
Leave nature in good condition, no foot prints.
Sense of depth - diagonal vs straight vs. horizontal lines vs. converging. Use river and path lines in nature.
Pattern repetition, emphasize, break pattern with contrast. Create dynamic tension.
Negative Space. In image, discover shape outside subject form, the area between and around objects.
Simplify or exaggerate. Shutter speed, aperature, exposure, scale, forced perspective.
Perspective. Move camera and/or body. Move camera to change height: Standing at eye, and other levels.
Rearrange space with freedom to change.
Ask, 'Will this add to or take away from the image?’
Overcast and cloudy are good to diffuse light. Mist for mystery.
Wabi Sabi. Find beauty in imperfections.
