Pictures, not snaps: 4

Leaning image

Hold the camera straight. A picture that’s leaning sideways a bit is thumbing its nose at whoever’s viewing it. Of course, if you’re shooting an ‘atmosphere’ picture for special effect, hold it as crookedly as your fancy demands.

Straightening the camera takes only one second longer. Even if you are pointing the camera slightly upwards or downwards, so that things go fan-shaped, spend that second in straightening the camera.

And, by the way, that goes for snaps, too.

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.
