Between actually totally losing my internet at home for several days and traveling to a writer's conference and my computer having hiccups, I can't do the photo tips on Portrait versus Landscape as much justice as I want. So part 2 will be next Friday.
But in the meantime, I have an assignment for you.
Since you most likely are using a digital camera, you can take pictures and look at them immediately. Right?
Well, grab you camera and go play for 5 minutes.
Pick a subject like: tv remote, a pretty plant, your kids, the office windows, food, your keyboard...basically, anything that strikes your fancy.
Then just start taking pictures.
Take a Portrait and Landscape shot of the item.
Take 4 different angles: above the item, even with the item, below the item, beside the item.
Shine a light on it.
Create a shadow over it.
Hit me with your best shot!
Leave me a link and let me see what you did.
Until then, keep on clicking!
