Photography tips: alternative angles.

Todays article comes courtesy of Wanderlust Magazine and is written by Steve Davey, Wanderlust’s photo tips guru.  A professional travel photographer and writer, he is the author of the best selling Unforgettable Places to See Before You Die and Unforgettable Islands to escape to before you die, both published by BBC Books, and translated into over 40 language editions. 

A photo should be more than just a simple rendering of reality. It should convey some meaning to the viewer; it should elicit a response or be visually stimulating. The key to making your pictures work on a deeper level is through composition: rather than just snapping away, pause and try to create something a little more thoughtful.

A useful compositional device is including a strong diagonal. These can be used to lead the onlooker’s eye into a detail, to link objects together or just to create a more graphic image.
