…Is the simplest way to better pictures. Plain and simple.
Most images are taken from eye level (booooring). It is what we see on a daily basis. So I ask you this: When was the last time you saw someone crawling around on the ground and, when you inquired (quite concernedly, I would assume) as to what they were doing, they simply replied “I just wanted to see what it looked like from down here.” NEVER! So be that person. Look at the world in ways most people can’t or don’t. Just make sure you have a camera in your hand so you don’t look too crazy.
Although better than a typical angle, this shot has been done time and time again.
PT.2 – Some night and interior images from a recent photo excursion to Montreal. Fuji X20 technical note for those who care about that stuff: When I first brought the RAW files from the Fuji X20 into Lightroom, I wasn’t terribly impressed with the noise in images at or above ISO 400. However, once I reduced the colour noise, the luminance noise that remained spoke volumes to the detail that Fuji has been putting into their sensors/cameras. Especially once converted to Black & White, this is the closest thing I’ve seen to traditional film grain come out of a digital camera. So much so, that I will use higher ISOs on this camera for creative purposes. It’s that good.
