Through the Lens – Challenge 2: Finding the Details

March 3, 2009


I don’t know about you, but at times, especially in winter, I have a very hard time finding subjects to shoot.  It becomes such a struggle and a frustration, but I don’t think it has to be.  Do you find yourself searching for the big scene, or the larger picture, while forgetting about the details?  I know I do.

The challenge today, is to find not the larger picture, but the smaller one.  Look for the details in that photo you are about to take and let the details tell the story.  You know sometimes the smaller things convey a much larger message than the bigger picture ever can.

Practice this challenge with different aperture settings and post the one, (or more,) that you like the best.  Then come back and link your post to the Mr. Linky box below.

Happy shooting!

    I love this photo! I think sometimes you need to get away from something to appreciate the details more. Right now snow seems so foreign to me that I am seeing the beauty in it that I didn’t appreciate before coming to the desert. Great thoughts!

    This is such a great photo. Crisp, balanced, telling a story. I would love to be able to capture things the way you do!
