As the first week of Photography 101 comes to a close, our theme today is Solitude and Rule of Thirds.
The rule of thirds is a technique where the object of the photo is place on the right or left third of the frame. Ideally, the horizon in the photo should also be at the bottom third of the frame.
Shooting a photo wide allows the photographer to crop the photo to comply with the rule. (PS – Rules can be broken. It is best to understand the rule before breaking the rule.)
Google defines solitude as:
- the state or situation of being alone,
- a lonely or uninhabited place.
I chose to apply this to a photo with an inanimate object. The water valve stand alone in the lake, yet ready to do its duty. I also chose to keep the platform horizontal rather than the lake’s water line.
Thanks for stopping by, y’all come back now.
Nice shot! I like the contrast between the water valve and the forest reflected in the lake.
Thanks for sharing!
Thank you Dale.
Quite the student!
I like that shot. 🙂
There’s some rich greens in the photo, draws me in to see what else is in the photo.
Glad you noticed that. I played with the color balance a bit in an attempt to get that color to pop out a bit.
Ah yes, the greens respond well to that.
