Pictures, not snaps: 2

Turn your snaps into pictures: 2

Sunset Middlesex

Be selective

O ne of the most common faults in snapshotting is – what? Clutter. In front of me there was a lot more than I included in the picture. More silhouetted trees, a house, a winding path across the foreground, two figures, walking.

Suppose I had included them all. The beauty of the tree would have been lost. Don’t clutter your snap with unnecessary things. Isolate the thing that caught your attention in the first place.

Turn the snap into a picture.

About Paul

Retired, I spend my time on commissions for lyrics, writing words for singing. Choral works, congregational hymns, school songs - anything that allows people to sing together. Over one hundred published works and many broadcasts and CDs. An always-present liking for photography and pictures of all kinds was employed for a few years of freelancing and nearly 20 years of art-directing Kodak promotional print media.
